Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Last Orders and Mothering Sunday, reissued for the first time in Scribner.

On an autumn day in 2006, on the Isle of Wight, Jack Luxton - former Devon farmer, now proprietor of a seaside caravan park - receives the news that his brother, Tom, not seen for years, has been killed in Iraq.

For Jack and his wife Ellie, this will have a potentially catastrophic impact and compel Jack to make a crucial journey: to receive his brother’s remains, but also to return to the land of his past and confront his most secret, troubling memories.
