From Away

A novel by

A family in mourning confronts ghosts from the past in this “complex, surprising, and haunting novel” from the New York Times–bestselling author (Tod Goldberg, New York Times–bestselling author of Living Dead Girl).
After a fatal car accident, the only remaining members of the Kehoe family are Sammy, his sister Charlotte, and her four-year-old daughter Maggie. Together they visit their beloved family home on remote Fox Island, Maine, to support each other and find healing. Much to their surprise, Sammy and Charlotte each have relationship sparks with island locals. But the budding idyll is shattered when Sammy and Maggie’s unexplained abilities to “see things” are put to the test. Ghosts from the past are beginning to resurface. And they’re making Fox Island a very dangerous place to be.
Peabody Award–winning television writer and New York Times–bestselling author Phoef Sutton offers “a page-turner of a different kind: mysterious, weird, and deeply affecting” with this novel of family and suspense (Tod Goldberg).
“I loved this book—it’s the best take on ghosts and how they work that I’ve ever read. Scary and mad but real, with crackling dialogue, From Away is a rare creature: a proper novel and a proper ghost story. I massively enjoyed it.” —Steven Moffat, creator of Sherlock and executive producer of Dr. Who

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"From Away is a complex, surprising, and haunting novel. Sutton's trademark wit lives within these pages, but here he reaches deeper, into a dark place, and finds something richer, something more human, than in any of his previous books. This is a page-turner of a different kind: mysterious, weird, and deeply affecting." - Tod Goldberg

"Phoef Sutton's From Away is a unique trip of a book. It starts off as a family drama, then morphs into an intense ghost story. It's about finding love in the real world and finding freedom to escape into the real hereafter. It's funny, wild, and touching, and not like any other novel I've ever read. Check it out." - Robert Ward
