Years ago, they fled the lake house. Now, the brothers have returned. Three brothers return to the family cottage by the lake where, more than two decades earlier, a catastrophe changed the course of their lives.
Now, they are here to scatter their mother’s ashes – young men, estranged but bound together by the history that defines them. Their lives have been spent competing for their father’s favour and their mother’s love, in a household more like a minefield than a home. What really happened that summer day when everything was blown to pieces?The Survivors is a suspenseful, haunting novel about three brothers and their reckoning with the events of one disputed, disastrous summer.
