He gets to the heart of people ... an extraordinary novel' Evening Standard





Time Out Novel of the Year 'Astonishingly moving' Sunday Express On an autumn day in 2006, on the Isle of Wight, Jack Luxton -- former Devon farmer, now proprietor of a seaside caravan park -- receives the news that his brother Tom, not seen for years, has been killed in Iraq. For Jack and his wife Ellie this will have a potentially catastrophic impact and compel Jack to make a crucial journey: to receive his brother's remains, but also to return to the land of his past and confront his most secret, troubling memories. Building to a fiercely suspenseful climax, Wish You Were Here is a hauntingly compassionate story that allows us to feel the stuff of headlines as heart-wrenching personal truth. 'Profound and powerful ...an unputdownable read' Scotland on Sunday 'A wonderful writer' Daily Telegraph
