The Girl Who Came Back

Author(s): Susan Lewis

General Fiction

For readers of Diane Chamberlain and Heather Gudenkauf comes a gripping novel of suspense about a mother determined to avenge her daughter's murder--no matter the cost to her husband, to her family, and to herself.

When Jules Bright hears a knock on the door, the last person she expects to find is a detective bringing her the news she's feared for the last three years.

Amelia Quentin is being released from prison.

Jules's life now is very different from the one she knew before Amelia shattered it completely. Knowing the girl is coming back, Jules must decide what to do. Friends and family gather around, fearing for Jules's safety. They know that justice was never served; each of them wants to make the Quentin girl pay.

The question is: What will Jules do?

And which of them--she or Amelia--has the most to fear?

Product Information

The compelling new novel from the Sunday Times Top Ten bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors, No Child of Mine and Don't Let Me Go.

"Lewis' depiction of inter-familial relationships in her latest novel is so accurate and powerfully emotive that The Girl Who Came Back does more than just tug at your heart strings; her characters almost reach out of the pages and pull you in to their twisted world of sadness and revenge. There's something about the way Lewis so truthfully captures the sensitivity and uniqueness of a mother-daughter bond that makes her novel so gripping; you rather want to unravel the story as if it were happening to your very own family ... It's dark, questioning and beautifully written; if you dare to pick it up, it will utterly absorb you into its twisted tale."
