5. Discussing the Light Between Oceans at the Mansfield Library
From the Mansfield Public Library
All are invited on March 19 to join the Mansfield Public Library for a discussion of the Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. The book is available in regular and large print, and according to NoveList: "A novel set on a remote Australian island, where a childless couple live quietly running a lighthouse, until a boat carrying a baby washes ashore"--.. Booklist called it an "emotionally complex story right from the beginning, with lush descriptions of this savage and beautiful landscape, and vivid characters with whom we can readily empathize."
