Just finished "The Light Between Oceans", an August title you may want to recommend
 for your Reading Group.

Setting:  A remote island, off the Australian Coast, post World War I.
A veteran finds working as the lighthouse keeper gives him little time for reliving
memories of the war.   His bride loves their life, but after losing three babes in
miscarriage or stillbirth, she begins to unravel.

Conundrum:  A small craft washes ashore, with a baby and the body of a man.
What do they do?  The decision shapes the rest of their lives.  Full of love,
memories, anguish and filtered through the lens of a post war Coastal village,
this is a remarkable read.  Take a chance on this first time novel.
