The Light Between Oceans – 1

Although spring has come, it is still sometimes cold and wintry in Perth, Western Australia. A good time to be reading M L Stedman’s novel, The Light Between Oceans, which is set at Augusta and nearby Cape Leeuwin, the coldest and wettest part of the state.

A lot of the novel takes place on an imaginary island off the coast from Cape Leeuwin. The description of Janus Island in the novel matches exactly what you can see from the actual lighthouse at the cape.

“…there was only vastness, all the way to Africa. Here the Indian Ocean washed into the Great Southern Ocean and together they stretched like an endless carpet….”.
