The Light Between Oceans (Book Review)

This was an interesting book. It took me months to finish part one and days to finish the rest. It started off slowly, like it d r a g g e d in the beginning. It basically began with a history lesson that sets the scene for the novel. Now, I'm all for historical fiction (it's one of my favorite genres) but there was something about this one that I didn't like. The explanations were tedious and the backstory was boring. 
However, once that was done, I loved this book. It became very interesting, somewhat suspenseful, and had me hooked. It was suspenseful, but not in the typical way. While I was reading, I kept wondering how the author would resolve the conflict, and the fact that a resolution seemed impossible, kept me turning the page. No one likes a good story that is ruined by a bad ending and in the end I was satisfied with the resolution. 
Overall I recommend this book. It is perfect for someone who enjoys a little history and a little drama all wrapped up in one.
