The Days When Birds Come Back

Cover art: The Days When Birds Come Back

By
Published by Houghton Mifflin on 2018-01-09
Hardcover: $24.00
FICTION / Literary


An emotionally searing novel of second chances from an author whose “gorgeous and wise prose” (Cheryl Strayed) will stay with you long after you’re done

June is in transition, reeling from her divorce, trying to stay sober, and faced with a completely stalled career. She returns to the beautiful Oregon coast where she grew up, and must decide what to do with her late and much-loved grandparents’ charming cedar-shingled home, a place haunted by memories of her childhood.

Jameson comes highly recommended to renovate the old house to sell, and from their first contact, his curiosity is piqued by June. He too is unmoored as he struggles to redefine his marriage in the aftermath of tragic loss, and over the course of the summer, his conversations with June about the house quickly turn to the personal — of secrets hidden in walls and of stories from the past half-told. Sensing connection, June and Jameson can’t seem to stop circling each other, shying away from hurt. But what can the future hold as long as they are gripped so firmly by the past?

Brimming with empathy, The Days When Birds Come Back, like the house itself, is a graceful testament to endurance, rebuilding, and the possibilities of coming home.

ACTIVITY FROM AROUND THE WEB

Two strangers, each harboring guilty sorrow over past losses, offer each other solace in this introspective novel from Reed (Things We Set on Fire, 2013).

An excruciatingly slow novel in which sentimental self-absorption rules despite nods to social issues like child abuse and gun violence.
