Summary, etc.:
Tom brings his new wife with him to this new job as lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, an isolated island where supply boats come once a season and shore leaves are granted once every other year at best. Years later, after two miscarriages and one still birth a baby's cry is heard. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby. Tom, a meticulous records keeper, wants to report the man and baby but his wife wants to claim the child as their own.
