A family in mourning confronts ghosts from the past in this “complex, surprising, and haunting novel” from the New York Times–bestselling author (Tod Goldberg, New York Times–bestselling author of Living Dead Girl).
After a fatal car accident, the only remaining members of the Kehoe family are Sammy, his sister Charlotte, and her four-year-old daughter Maggie. Together they visit their beloved family home on remote Fox Island, Maine, to support each other and find healing. Much to their surprise, Sammy and Charlotte each have relationship sparks with island locals. But the budding idyll is shattered when Sammy and Maggie’s unexplained abilities to “see things” are put to the test. Ghosts from the past are beginning to resurface. And they’re making Fox Island a very dangerous place to be.
Peabody Award–winning television writer and New York Times–bestselling author Phoef Sutton offers “a page-turner of a different kind: mysterious, weird, and deeply affecting” with this novel of family and suspense (Tod Goldberg).
“I loved this book—it’s the best take on ghosts and how they work that I’ve ever read. Scary and mad but real, with crackling dialogue, From Away is a rare creature: a proper novel and a proper ghost story. I massively enjoyed it.” —Steven Moffat, creator of Sherlock and executive producer of Dr. Who
