    Summary

    When he conversed with others about his occupation, they usually expressed some sentiment along the lines of, “Goodness, you poor man; it must be so lonely!” But in truth John did not think a light keeper’s life particularly lonely; at least, it was not so for a man like himself. There was something clear and bracing about feeling lonely while being actually, physically alone on this desolate little island; it was a straightforward kind of loneliness, not the obscure and complicated loneliness he felt when he was amidst a crowd of people.

    Summary

    Under the light of the whale oil lamps, Henry’s hair is darkened to a glossy black and the lines that go from his nostrils and frame his mouth are filled in with shadow. In this, from out of the dusky cove that is his face in the evening, his eyes glitter.

    His gaze goes down to his arm, where they touch, and lingers. He parts his lips. “John.”
