Today I thought I’d feature The Returned by Jason Mott for Book Trailer Tuesday (hosted by Mary at BookHounds). I’ll be reading it soon, and I have to say, the premise behind this debut novel has me completely intrigued.
Elderly couple Harold and Lucille Hargrave tragically lost their only son when he was just eight years old. Decades later, he appears on their doorstep, still eight years old. But it’s not just their son who is back from the dead: “All over the world people’s loved ones are returning from beyond. No one knows how or why this is happening, whether it’s a miracle or a sign of the end.”
If you have a bit of extra time, you can also watch this interview and audience Q&A with Jason Mott from BEA 2013:
The Returned isn’t even due to be released by Harlequin MIRA until late August 2013, but ABC has already picked up an adaptation of it for a new television series this fall!
What do you think? Do you want to read the book and/or watch the television series?
