The Oceans Between Us

The Oceans Between Us

by Gill Thompson

Overview: A woman is found wandering injured in London after an air raid. She remembers nothing of who she is. Only that she has lost something very precious. As the little boy waits in the orphanage, he hopes his mother will return. But then he finds himself on board a ship bound for Australia, the promise of a golden life ahead, and wonders: how will she find him in a land across the oceans? In Perth, a lonely wife takes in the orphaned child. But then she discovers the secret of his past. Should she keep quiet? Or tell the truth and risk losing the boy who has become her life?

Leslie Swichkow (10/09/19):Inspired by true events, this is a novel that captivated me from the beginning. Another angle, and another heart wrenching tale of events surrounding World War II consumed me almost from the first page. It alternates between stories of a woman in London, who has memory loss from an explosion and a young boy who is growing up in a sequence of orphanages. The book explores some interesting and unusual relationships, which intersect in surprising ways. Best book I've read in months!
