The Second Life of Samuel Tyne

(2004)
A novel by

 
 
After the death of Uncle Jacob, the man who oversaw his education and passage to Canada from Ghana as a penance for having betrayed his father, Samuel inherits his crumbling house. In a moment of triumph, Samuel quits his desperately boring civil service job, and convinces his grudging family to take up residence there. His wife and his odd silent twins reluctantly agree and begin to resurrect the house from the weeds, mould and decay. The deep rot is not only in the house. Their new town also has some very dubious characters. But the real strangeness, if not madness, resides in his very family - most particularly with the twins.
