You Came Back Summary


You Came Back by Christopher Coake

You 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 now 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.
