In ‘The Light Between Oceans’ Australian, Tom Sherbourne, returns home after fighting in the western trenches of World War I in Europe. He and his wife, Isabel, move to an isolated lighthouse, where they remain for several years. While there they informally adopt a baby girl who washes up in a lifeboat. When the child is two years old, Tom & Isabel return to live on the mainland. There they discover that "there are other people in the world", and keeping the child "has devastated one of them."
