Seizing his one chance to escape, Ethan Hosking leaves his violent ex-boyfriend, leaves his entire life, and walks into the path of a raging bushfire. Desperate to start over, a new man named Aubrey Hobbs walks out of the fire-ravaged forest, alive and alone. With no ID and no money, nothing but his grandfather’s telescope, he goes where the Southern Cross leads him.

Patrick Carney is the resident lighthouse keeper in Hadley Cove, a small town on the remote Kangaroo Island off the coast of South Australia. After the tragic death of his lover four years ago, he lives a solitary life; just him, a tabby cat, the Indian and Southern Oceans, and a whole lot of loneliness. He’s content with his life until a stranger shows up in town and turns Patrick’s head.

Patrick never expected to be interested in anyone else.

Aubrey never expected to be happy.

Between Aubrey’s love of the stars and Patrick’s love of the ocean, these two fragile hearts must navigate new waters. If they can weather the storm of their pasts, they could very well have a love that eclipses everything.


I don’t know if I could say anything that would come even remotely close to how I felt reading this book. This book might be the most romantic book I’ve ever read. I can’t find words to describe. It filled me with a deep longing. For the stars. For the ocean. For something unknown.

“The Southern Cross is what brought me here. The constellation. I followed it, here, to this island. To you.”

Aubrey and Patrick are so perfect together. Aubrey has gone through so much as Ethan and it was heart breaking to read but he is so strong. He overcame that and rose like a Phoenix from the ashes. This book has strong hurt/comfort themes and is written in dual POV.

“May the stars forever guide us, and may this lighthouse bring us home.”

I’m really glad I read this book and if I hadn’t participated in a readathon, I wouldn’t have come across this gem. Such an amazing read!

“I will love you every minute of every day for as long as there are stars in the sky”
