Description

The book behind the TV show, The Resurrection.



A family given a second chance at life


A world where nothing - not even death - is certain


Lucille Hargrave's son Jacob has been dead for over forty years. Now he's standing on her doorstep, still eight years old. Still looking for her to welcome him with open arms.



This is the beginning of the Returned.



Praise for Jason Mott
`With fine craftsmanship and a deep understanding of the human condition, Jason Mott has woven a tale that is in turns tragic and humorous and terrifying' - Eowyn Ivey, Author of The Snow Child


`Could be the next Lovely Bones' - Entertainment Weekly



`Fantastically readable' - The Times



`Gripping' - Shortlist


'Mott tackles some big themes here, especially the vagaries of spirituality, and scores with one of the most emotionally resonant works in many seasons' - Essence Magazine


'It will...make you question what it means to be human and what you'd do in a similar situation'-The Sun


'Get in early before the hype begins' - Star Magazine


'The Returned transforms a brilliant premise into an extraordinary and beautifully realized novel. My spine is still shivering from the memory of this haunting story. Wow.' -Douglas Preston, #1 bestselling author of The Monster of Florence


'A deft meditation on loss that plays out levels of consequence on both personal and international stages. Mott allows the magic of his story to unearth a full range of feelings about grief and connection.' - Aimee Bender, New York Times bestselling author of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake


'Mott brings a singularly eloquent voice to this elegiac novel, which not only fearlessly tackles larger questions about mortality but also insightfully captures life's simpler moments... A beautiful meditation on what it means to be human.' -Booklist
