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.

A man has died, and his family has gathered to hear the reading of his will. Much to the surprise of Aaron, Bridge and Franny Quinlan, they all stand to inherit a sizable fortune, but there's one, rather odd condition. They must remain on the isolated Pacific Northwest estate for thirty days-- without any contact with the outside world. Bridge is disturbed by vague memories ... and they feel something pulling them out into the dark heart of the woods ... -- adapted from front cover fold
