Elizabeth und ihre Zwillingsschwester Emily wachsen in der rauen Einsamkeit des Lake Superior auf. Ihr Vater ist Leuchtturmwärter auf Porphyry Island, einer kleinen, sturmumtosten Insel. Die beiden Mädchen sind unzertrennlich, obwohl Emily nicht spricht – doch sie hat ein bemerkenswertes Gespür für Tiere, und sie malt wunderschöne Pflanzenbilder. Ihr Bruder Charles fühlt sich für die Schwestern verantwortlich. Doch dann setzt ein schreckliches Ereignis der Idylle für immer ein Ende ... Siebzig Jahre hat Elizabeth nicht mit ihrem Bruder gesprochen, als am Ufer des Sees Charles' Boot angespült wird. Von ihm fehlt jede Spur, doch sie weiß, dass es nur einen Ort gibt, zu dem er unterwegs gewesen sein kann. Nur was hat ihn nach all den Jahren dazu gebracht, nach Porphyry zurückzukehren?

The Light Between Oceans meets The Language of Flowers in this beautiful debut novel by an acclaimed Canadian children’s author. Elizabeth's eyes have failed. She can no longer read the books she loves or see the paintings that move her spirit, but her mind remains sharp and music fills the vacancy left by her blindness as she ruminates on the secrets in her family's past. When her late father's journals are discovered on a shipwrecked boat, she enlists the help of a delinquent teenager, Morgan, who is completing community service at the senior home where Elizabeth lives. An unlikely relationship develops between the two as they work to decipher the books and are drawn into the musty words he penned more than seventy years before as he manned the lighthouse on Porphyry Island. In the process they come to realize that they are both connected to the isolated island, their lives touched by Elizabeth's enigmatic twin sister Emily and the beautiful but harsh Lake Superior environment. While the discovery of Morgan's connection sheds light onto her own family mysteries, the faded pages of the journals hold more questions than answers for Elizabeth, and threaten the very core of who she is. Combining an emotional story of human connection with a mystery spanning decades, this tale of family, identity, and art will captivate and resonate with readers.

Der katalanische Schriftsteller und Maler Santiago Rusiñol (1861- 1931) hat nicht nur viele wunderbare Bilder von Gärten und Landschaften auf Mallorca gemalt, sondern auch eines der schönsten und populärsten Bücher über sein Paradies verfasst. In Mallorca- die Insel der Ruhe (1912/1922) skizziert er mit leiser Ironie die idyllischen mallorquinischen Lebensverhältnisse seiner Zeit. Auch wenn sich die Verhältnisse u.a. durch den Massentourismus mittlerweile radikal geändert haben, lohnt die Lektüre dieses Buches nicht nur wegen ihres nostalgischen Charakters, sondern auch als Korrektiv zu George Sands Pamphlet Ein Winter auf Mallorca. Das Buch war im 20. Jhd eins der meistgelesenen Werke über Mallorca und wurde in viele Sprachen übersetzt!
