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
When their absentee father dies, Aaron and Bridge Quinlan travel to his property in the Pacific Northwest to hear the reading of his will. There they reunite with their mother and sister, and they are all surprised by the terms of the will; in order to claim their inheritance they must spend 30 days in his estate without contacting the outside world.
