Ohh two such very good books. I did read The Light Between the Oceans this past year and gave it my 5 star rating. As for Fenchman's Creek I read this when I was in high school and again loved it. I think it was also a movie with Joan Fontaine who also starred as the main character from DuMaurier's classic novel Rebecca. I sure did love Daphne DuMaurier's books and think now I'll reread Frenchman's Creek for this group's September reads.

Katz Nancy from NJ (nancyk18) i am excited to discuss The Light Between Oceans which I read during this past year. As for Frenchman's Creek,I think I will reread this title since the last time I read this I was in high school. I think it was also a movie with Joan Fontaine who also played the main charachter(she had no name if you recall) in Daphne DuMaurier's classic novel, Rebecca.

That's true. I will have to see what other books I have planned for September and see if I can fit both in as I do want to read The Light Between Oceans as well! That said, there is a huge reservation queue at the library for The Light Between Oceans so if I read that one I'll have to buy the kindle version.

Peggy (pebbles84) | 15384 comments I'll start reading The Light Between Oceans tonight or tomorrow. Should I make a discussion thread for the book? Or can one of the mods do it? Thanks! :)

Lynn | 2674 comments Dear Mods, the books are not on the bookshelf and we have no threads to start discussing the books :(


message 14: by Nancy from NJ (new)

Katz Nancy from NJ (nancyk18) I have read both of these books previously. Perhaps I will consider rereading one or both of them depending on how much else I have to read.
