About this product
- DescriptionYou were loved and lost ...then you came back. Thirty-something Mark Fife believes he has moved on from the accidental death of his young son Brendan and the subsequent break-up of his marriage. He's successful, in love again, and he thinks he's mastered his own memories at last. But when a strange woman tells him she believes her house is haunted by Brendan's ghost, his life is thrown into turmoil. Mark doesn't believe in ghosts, but his distressed ex-wife does, and he really wants to help her. So much so that he begins to doubt his own beliefs - and endanger the relationships that really matter w in his life, with his fiancee Allison and his tough and sceptical father. You Came Back is a wonderfully affecting read about the nature of belief and bereavement, about old loves and new loves, and the hardships involved in letting go.
