The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month.

Novels on long time missing persons that come back

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


Well, after all my satisfied inquiries here at the bookclubforum, here I am with one more: this time I'm looking for novels with long time missing persons that all of a sudden come back to their homes or to their families.


Anyone know of a good one relating to this?


Many thanks!

The only one that springs to mind is Carol O'Connell's 'Flight Of The Stone Angel'. This book is fourth or fifth in a series on it's central character, but could be read and understood on it's own.
