WHOOOO'S READY FOR A GOOD BOOK?
Now is the perfect time to join the Dover Free Library's book club. The Night Owls Book Club is a good way to stay connected to the community, enjoy a variety of books new to you, and enjoy the great (and warm) indoors. Copies of the featured books can be borrowed from the library. For more information contact the library by calling 348-7488 or email John, Library Director
This month, the club will meet Wednesday, September 24th at 6pm to discuss the book: The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. Amazon Best Books of the Month, August 2012: Tom Sherbourne is a lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, a tiny island a half-day's boat journey from the coast of Western Australia. When a baby washes up in a rowboat, he and his young wife, Isabel, decide to raise the child as their own. The baby seems like a gift from God, and the couple's reasoning for keeping her seduces the reader into entering the waters of treacherous morality even as Tom--whose moral code withstood the horrors of World War I--begins to waver. M. L. Stedman's vivid characters and gorgeous descriptions of the solitude of Janus Rock and the unpredictable Australian frontier create a perfect backdrop for this tale of longing, loss, and the overwhelming love for a child. --Malissa Kent of Amazon Review
