Everyone to whom I have recommended this book has been enchanted by it. It's the story of a young couple who live in a lighthouse on a tiny island some miles from the coast of Australia. They are very much in love and have a comfortable, pleasant life even in their isolation from others, the only disappointment being that the wife is unable to carry a baby to full term. Then one day a small boat washes up on shore bearing a dead man and a small baby who is very much alive. I'll not give away any more of the story, but it is really worth reading to find out what happens. It's an exceptional novel!
