Light Between Oceans

   M.L.Stedman wants to stay 'behind the curtain', so that people can fully connect with the book.  She believes that personal information about the author stands between the reader and the story.  So it is even difficult to find her first name- "Margot".  I love reading about authors and understanding their experiences that caused them to write the way they do.  And I was able to find out that Margot was a lawyer in Western Australia, but is now living and writing full-time in London.
   This book had nine international publishers bidding on the manuscript!  Can you imagine!  A first novel!  It really hit a chord!

Emotionally complex        
                                  Morally ambiguous   
Margot Stedman
