Every family has its secrets and, even when some are taken to the grave, they do not remain buried. In this exquisitely descriptive American novel, an operatic cast of characters plays out a tale of family ties so strong that neither death nor distance can sever them. This beautiful story of love, loss and lasting bonds took nearly ten years to craft, with unforgettable scenes and characters who walk the line between good and bad. Truly unique.

Eight-year-old Edgar remembers nothing of the terrible accident people still whisper about. He only knows his father is dead, his mother has a limp, and his grandmother believes in ghosts. When Edgar meets a man with his own tragic story, the boy begins a journey into a secret wilderness where nothing is clear - even the line between the living and the dead.
Edgar and Lucy is a thrilling adventure and an unlikely love story, combining a wonderfully rendered family epic with a desperate search for a little boy who's lost.
