Summary
Pyper's weird, wonderful, audacious new novel begins simply enough: a man has died, and his family has gathered to hear the reading of his will. Much to the surprise of the man's widow and the couple's children, they all stand to inherit a sizable fortune, but there's one, rather odd condition. From this first small indication that The Homecoming will be no ordinary family drama, the story--walking a line between thriller and horror--descends, at first slowly and then with almost dizzying speed, into an abyss of shattered memories, disquieting dreams, and an evil that borders on the surreal. The characters, who seemed fairly normal at the outset, show themselves to possess deep layers of haunting pain
Summary
After learning from their father's will that to claim their inheritance they must stay at the family estate for thirty days with their troubled mother and sister, two brothers are drawn into a world of dark revelations and long-kept secrets.
