'If you haven't read Kate Morton before, do yourself a favour' Graham Norton, broadcaster and bestselling author of Home Stretch

A breathtaking mystery of love, lies and a cold case come back to life, Homecoming is an immersive, twisting epic from the bestselling Kate Morton, told with her trademark intricacy and beauty.

Adelaide Hills, 1959. At the end of a scorching hot day, in 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 mystifying murder investigations in the history of Australia.

London, 2018. Jess is a journalist in search of a story. Having lived and worked in London for nearly two decades, a phone call summons her back to Sydney, where her beloved grandmother, Nora, has suffered a fall and is seriously ill in hospital.

Seeking comfort in her past, Jess discovers a true crime book at Nora's house chronicling a long-buried police case: the Turner Family Tragedy of 1959. And within its pages she finds a shocking personal connection to this notorious event - a crime that has never truly been solved.

An epic novel that spans generations, Homecoming asks what we would do for those we love and how we protect the lies we tell.

About the Author

Kate Morton was born in South Australia and grew up in the mountains of south-east Queensland. She has degrees in dramatic art and English literature, specializing in nineteenth-century tragedy and contemporary gothic novels. She is the author of The House at Riverton, The Forgotten Garden, The Distant Hours, The Secret Keeper, The Lake House and The Clockmaker's Daughter, which have all been global number one bestsellers.

She began her latest novel Homecoming after leaving the UK in March 2020 to be near family in South Australia. Inspired by themes of home, belonging and family, her novel is set in London ('the city of my heart') and the Adelaide Hills, and is filled with secrets and mysteries, mothers and daughters, and a big old house on a hill.
