From the highly acclaimed author of The Photographer of the Lost, a BBC Radio 2 Book Club Pick ‘A powerful story that's achingly moving and most beautifully written. Readers of Maggie O'Farrell and Helen Dunmore are likely to enjoy' Rachel Hore, bestselling author of The Love Child They need him to remember. He wants to forget. 1918. In the last week of the First World War, a uniformed soldier is arrested in Durham Cathedral. When questioned, it becomes clear he has no memory of who he is or how he came to be there. The soldier is given the name Adam and transferred to a rehabilitation home. His doctor James is determined to recover who this man once was. But Adam doesn't want to remember. Unwilling to relive the trauma of war, Adam has locked his memory away, seemingly for good. When a newspaper publishes a feature about Adam, three women come forward, each claiming that he is someone she lost in the war. But does he believe any of these women? Or is there another family out there waiting for him to come home? Based on true events, When I Come Home Again is a deeply moving and powerful story of a nation's outpouring of grief, and the search for hope in the aftermath of war. 'Wonderful and evocative . . . it is so much more subtle and complex than being just the journey to discover who Adam really is. It is not only about memory and identity, it's about the repercussions and tragedy of war, reaching out across vast swathes of society' Suzanne Goldring, author of Burning Island Praise for The Photographer of the Lost: ‘This excellent debut is a melancholic reminder of the rippling after-effects of war' The Times '[An] impressive debut… a touching novel of love and loss' Sunday Times 'There's only one word for this novel… and that's epic… A beautifully written must-read' heat 'A gripping, devastating novel about the lost and the ones they left behind' Sarra Manning, RED ‘[A] terrific first novel' Daily Mail ‘Scott has done an amazing job of drawing on real stories to craft a powerful novel' Good Housekeeping ‘A deeply poignant and immersive novel… told in beautiful, elevated prose. I was completely caught up in these characters' stories' Rachel Hore 'What a wonderful debut novel… I couldn't stop reading' Lorna Cook 'A sublimely rendered portrait of the search for answers amidst the chaos and devastation left behind in the aftermath of World War 1' Fiona Valpy ‘A poignant hymn to those who gave up their lives for their country and to those who were left behind' Fanny Blake 'I was utterly captivated by this novel, which swept me away, broke my heart, then shone wonderful light through all the pieces' Isabelle Broom ‘The Photographer of the Lost is going to be on an awful lot of Best Books of the Year lists, mine included… unforgettable' Iona Grey 'Momentous, revelatory and astonishing historical fiction!' Historical Novel Society ‘Had me spellbound from the first page to the last' Hazel Gaynor 'It captivated me from start to finish' NB Magazine
