Reviews & Summaries
Well, this is basically that book, but set 100 years ago off the coast of Australia.
The book starts out pretty slow; it details the history of the couple's relationship in the beginning, which frankly I could have done without. Personally if I were the editor I'd just chop off all the chapters leading up when the baby washes ashore.
THEN the book gets interesting, and I read the rest in one night. Worth reading, if you've got nothing better to do.
