On Tuesday, September 18, at 2:30 p.m., the Thomaston Intergenerational Book Club will meet to discuss “The Light Between Oceans” by M. L. Stedman. In the novel, a soldier, Tom Sherbourne, returns to Australia after four years on the Western Front and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, an isolated island nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. While living on the island, his wife Isabel suffers two miscarriages and one stillbirth, and then a boat carrying a dead man and a living baby washes up on the shore. Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and, against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own. When she is 2, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world and find their choice has devastated one of them. On the third Tuesday of every month, members of the Intergenerational Book Club meet to discuss their opinions and ideas about the selected book. All are welcome at the meetings. Anyone who lives in Thomaston and would like to attend but needs a ride is welcome to call the library at 354-2453 a week before the discussion date to arrange a ride. October’s IGBC selection is “Anne of Green Gables” by L. M. Montgomery. Copies will be available to borrow at the library.
