May 2013 Pioneer Bookshop Book Club Pick

The Light Between Oceans, by M.L. Stedman, will be discussed at the May meeting of the Pioneer Bookshop Bookclub.    The meeting is held at the Pioneer Bookshop in downtown Grinnell, Iowa on the first Thursday of each month.     We start the informal discussion at 7pm. All are welcome to join us at any point.   Check this blog to see what we have read.

In The Light Between Oceans, a stoic, fiercely principled, rather solitary man, recently returned from serving in World War I, meets an effervescent young woman who desperately wants to be a mother. After marrying and settling on a remote island off Western Australia, Tom and Isabel suffer through two miscarriages and a stillbirth. She has just buried their dead child when another baby literally washes up on their shore, accompanied by her lifeless father.
