I met Margot in Byron Bay in 2014 and bought her book after spending the morning talking about lighthouses with her and another author (Ian Hoskins) who is a lighthouse fanatic.
I wish I had of read it sooner, as I thought it was just a wishy-washy romance novel at first and never knew just how good it was on so many levels.
It's one of the best novels I have read in a good while.
I love how the little girl found in the boat is named Lucy and her real name is Grace.
Talk about keepers of "the light" ;-)
I can't see how the movie could capture the book on the cinema screen, as a lot of the book's appeal is the internal dialogue and thoughts of the characters.
Fassbender played one of my all time heroes, Carl Jung in the movie, 'A Dangerous Method',
" A look at how the intense relationship between Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud gives birth to psychoanalysis".
I think it was funny though, that the bulk of the action in the book takes place on and off the coast of Western Australia, yet the filming took place in Tasmania and New Zealand.

Australian Danish princess Mary to make
'The Light Between Oceans'.
How much ocean is between the lights of Tasmania and Denmark?-)
Going With the Flow in Devonport on My Last Day in Tasmania
I miss Tasmania, but as another famous actor once said,
"I'll be back".

And with all this banter about oceans I couldn't help smiling that Noah's latest work has him in 'Deep Water':-)
