9780099586548: The Girl Who Came Back

For readers of Diane Chamberlain and Heather Gudenkauf comes a gripping novel of suspense about a mother determined to avenge her daughter’s murder—no matter the cost to her husband, to her family, and to herself.
 
When Jules Bright hears a knock on the door, the last person she expects to find is a detective bringing her the news she’s feared for the last three years.
 
Amelia Quentin is being released from prison.
 
Jules’s life now is very different from the one she knew before Amelia shattered it completely. Knowing the girl is coming back, Jules must decide what to do. Friends and family gather around, fearing for Jules’s safety. They know that justice was never served; each of them wants to make the Quentin girl pay.
 
The question is: What will Jules do?
 
And which of them—she or Amelia—has the most to fear?

About the Author:

Susan Lewis is the internationally bestselling author of more than thirty novels, including No Child of Mine, Don’t Let Me Go, The Truth About You, Never Say Goodbye, Behind Closed Doors, No Place to Hide, and Too Close to Home. Having resided in France and the United States for many years, she now lives in the rural county of Gloucestershire, England.

From Publishers Weekly:

In the prologue of this overwrought novel of suspense from British author Lewis (Too Close to Home), nine-year-old Amelia Quentin deliberately pushes her mother, Olivia, from a boat into the sea, where Olivia, who can't swim, drowns. Amelia suffers no consequences, but 16 years later she's released from prison for an unspecified crime that only becomes clear much later in the book, whose first half dwells on the idyllic life of London residents Jules Bright and her husband, Kian Bright. The couple's happiness is completed by the birth of their charismatic child, Daisy, though a shadow looms after Jules's first inauspicious meeting with Amelia and her family in Kesterly-on-Sea, England. The uneasy relationship that develops between the girls when they are teenagers ends with Daisy's disappearance and Amelia's arrest. Amelia's "bad seed" character is simply too unconvincing to make Lewis's story compelling. The ghost of a dead child hovers over the action to no apparent purpose. (June)\n
