The Days When Birds Come Back

ebook
This tale of renovation and recovery is "an emotionally satisfying novel about the lingering effects of trauma and how people deal with guilt."—Publishers Weekly

June is in transition, reeling from her divorce and trying to stay sober. She returns to the Oregon coast where she grew up, and must decide what to do with her late and much-loved grandparents' charming cedar-shingled home, a place haunted by memories of her childhood.

Jameson comes highly recommended to renovate the old house in preparation for selling it, and from their first contact, he senses a connection with June. He too is unmoored as he struggles to redefine his marriage in the aftermath of loss. But what can the future hold as long as they are gripped so firmly by the past?

The Days When Birds Come Back, like the house itself, is a graceful testament to endurance, rebuilding, and the possibilities of coming home, from the acclaimed author of Things We Set on Fire and Pale Morning Light with Violet Swan.

"I don't believe I've ever read such an exquisitely painful story that has on a daily basis so affected the way I interact with other humans, especially my dearest loved ones. This is a novel that makes me want to pay better attention."—Bonnie Nadzam, author of Lions and Lamb

"Reed's painterly descriptions of the Oregon coast are so vivid and real, so beautiful and lyrical that her writing is more like a visual art form." — Portland Tribune

"Achingly exquisite...a blindingly beautiful book" — Caroline Leavitt, New York Times-bestselling author of With or Without You
