The highly anticipated new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Clockmaker's Daughter, a sweeping novel that begins with a shocking crime, the effects of which echo across continents and generations

Adelaide Hills, Christmas Eve, 1959: At the end of a scorching hot day, beside a creek on the grounds of a grand country house, a local man makes a terrible discovery. Police are called, and the small town of Tambilla becomes embroiled in one of the most baffling murder investigations in the history of South Australia.

Many years later and thousands of miles away, Jess is a journalist in search of a story. Having lived and worked in London for two decades, she now finds herself unemployed and struggling to make ends meet. A phone call out of nowhere summons her back to Sydney, where her beloved grandmother Nora, who raised Jess when her mother could not, has suffered a fall and is seriously ill in the hospital.

At Nora's house, Jess discovers a true crime book chronicling a long-buried police case: the Turner Family Tragedy of 1959. It is only when Jess skims through its pages that she finds a shocking connection between her own family and this notorious event ?? a mystery that has never been satisfactorily resolved.

An epic story that spans generations, Homecoming asks what we would do for those we love, how we protect the lies we tell, and what it means to come home. Above all, it is an intricate and spellbinding novel from one of the finest writers working today.

I love Kate Morton. The Forgotten Garden is one of my favorites, so I was very excited to finally get this after waiting on hold from the library for many weeks!

This was kind of a crazy, dark, mystery-drama. I had no idea what I was getting into at the beginning of the story and was hard pressed to put it down each time real life called. Even by the end of the book, I was still trying to figure out what might pop up next in the story of the Turner family. And what a story it all was! I enjoyed it and rate it 4.5 ⭐️’s!! ( )

I was left wondering what more I should have gotten from Homecoming. It succeeded in being an interesting story of the tragic deaths of a family, and I liked the "book within a book" device. I didn't guess Polly's true identity before it was revealed, so that was a big surprise for me, but overall the characters seemed disappointing to me. Nora wasn't really the loving grandmother figure of Jess' memory, Jess seemed a little lifeless, and Polly was cold and distant. I think there was some deeper meaning to Jess' return to her home in Australia (based on the title of the book), but she didn't exactly find the family connections she was looking for. Jess' return seemed juxtaposed with Isabel's sense of not belonging and isolation in Australia with her husband away for long periods, but she died along with her children just as she had decided to return to England. What were we supposed to understand from that? Family is uncertain and fleeting? Perhaps there was a glimmer of hope at the end that Jess would get to know her true grandfather's family and finally find her "home."

Meg and her Fish Paste which killed the Turner family was a surprise. She was so nice, kind, caring, et al. unless you messed with her man. Who knew Isabel would share it with her kids and, of course, the baby couldn't eat it so she survived. I was fascinated by what could have happened to baby Thea. Never believed she was taken by Dingoes but where was she. When we became aware that Nora wasn't the nice person she passed as, I started to think that she could be involved in Thea's fate, that Polly could be Thea. We were disgusted by Nora's carrying around her dead baby to Council meeting's, everyplace she went, then burying her in the garden and becoming the mother of a new "Polly." Nora was so controlling. When poor Becky recognized the baby Nora was pushing around in the pram was really Thea, she was chastised by everyone but was actually right. ( )

This was a great story, which involved many little unexpected twist throughout. Beautifully written and very descriptive, with a wonderful array of reflective and interesting characters.
Jess returns home to Sydney from London to care for her Grandmother, Nora, who has had a fall while searching in her attic for something from decades earlier. Jess knows she has recently received a letter from a solicitor in south Australia which it seems to relate to her Grandmothers family in the late 1950's.
The story swaps back and forth between characters in 1959 and 2018 with part of the story told from the writings of journalist in 1980 who covered a family tragedy in his book. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and would recommend it without reserve. ( )

“There was a truth observed by all good preachers, leaders, and salesmen: tell a good story, tell it in simple language, tell it often.”

Australian author Kate Morton’s long awaited seventh novel Homecoming is a dual timeline thriller that moves between modern day Sydney and 1959 Adelaide Hills.

Jess Turner-Bridges is a journalist living in London, who has just lost her job. She finds herself suddenly called home to Sydney to the bedside of her beloved aging grandmother Nora who has taken a fall trying to climb up into her attic. Jess senses something is amiss and begins trying to piece together what her grandmother was trying to do, and what is distressing her. Along the way she uncovers a book about the Turner Family Tragedy of Christmas Eve 1959. The tragedy unexpectedly connects with Jess’s family and Jess is determined to find out more.

The book shifts between the Turner family and their neighbours in rural Tambilla in the 1950s and 60s, and Jess trying to solve the riddle sixty years later. This is a clever, engaging read that draws you into both the complex relationship dynamics between mother, daughter and grand-daughter, and the puzzle pieces of the mysterious deaths at a peaceful family picnic. It builds slowly and surely, drawing you in for the whole story. I really enjoyed this engaging read. ( )

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley, and unfortunately this wasn't the book for me. I found the first 70% to be slowly paced and really drawn out, then the last 30% picked up and got going really well. It ended in a rush, but I wasn't a fan of the ending. All the story lines did wrap up well, but overall I didn't enjoy it. ( )

En natuurlijk moest er een feestelijke lunch komen om het nieuwe jaar te vieren.
Later, als hij ernaar gevraagd werd - wat in de loop van zijn lange, lange leven veel zou gebeuren - antwoordde Percy Summers altijd naar waarheid dat hij dacht fat ze lag te slapen.
