Garden of the Lost

(2018)
A novel by

 
 
Is Conrad Green alive? The answer seems obvious. He moves, he breathes, he occasionally takes food. But inside, he's dead, unable to write a word on his next novel, barely able to take care of himself, ruled by despair over the sudden death of his beautiful wife, Claire, six months ago. Since that dreadful day, he's done only one significant thing. Feeling strangely drawn into a salvage yard, he discovers and buys an antique wrought iron fence that he installs around Claire's beloved iris garden.

That night, at precisely 1:00 a.m., a little boy shows up in the garden. He's holding onto the fence, looking inside at the flowers, and sobbing with such intensity, it pierces the gloom around Conrad's heart. Conrad goes outside to help, but by the time he reaches the garden, the boy is gone. The same thing happens the next night. On the third night, when the boy reappears, a shocking event sends Conrad on a crazy quest that ultimately rocks his small town, uncovers its deepest secrets, and shows him there's a lot about life - and death - he hasn't understood.
