Homecoming

by Bernard Schlink
£7.99   paperback  Orion Publishing Co. (2009)

Homecoming by Bernard Schlink When thirteen-year-old Peter discovers an old manuscript in his family home it instantly captivates him. The manuscript tells the compelling story of a German soldier's homecoming after escaping from a POW camp, but the document is incomplete, and Peter is destined not to know the ending.
 
Years later, the adult Peter rediscovers the text and goes in search of the missing pages - but far from unearthing an ending, he finds himself at the beginning of a quest that leads him across Europe to New York City, to the mystery of his father's disappearance, a love story, and the question of his own identity...

"Schlink is an accomplished and intelligent writer whose literary prose reads as well as the crime thrillers of which he is an acknowledged master."
(Evening Standard)
