Feature and Follow Friday

This blog hop is hosted every week by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read.

This week’s question:
  
What is the last book that made you cry? Tell us about the scene…

The last book that made me cry is The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. Not one scene, but the whole book.

This book is about a lighthouse keeper and his wife on a remote Australian island. The wife has suffered through miscarriages and stillbirths and longs for a baby

One day a boat washes up on the shore with a dead man and a living baby. The wife begs her husband to keep the baby . . . and this changes both of their lives forever. A heartbreaking novel about the repercussions of the choices we make.

    Haven't heard of that one, but any author that can elicit strong emotion is doing something right (or very wrong!).

    Thanks for stopping by.
