Would you accept a chance for happiness even if it wasn't yours to have? This is a story about a lighthouse keeper and his wife, who live on a lonely island with just seagulls, stars and buffeting winds for company. It's a story about right and wrong, and how sometimes they look the same.

Redhill Library Reading Group -- A nice, easy, enjoyable read. Not much depth to it. Unrealistic, formulaic and forced in parts. The historical aspect was poorly written and unnecessary; it didn't add anything to the story nor did it give a sense of that time period. Good as an individual read, perhaps on holiday, but too commercial to be properly discussed and enjoyed as a group. 7/10
