Book Description

How would your wife react if you came home with the face of someone else? How would you continue to look at your own life? What would you do?



Considered one of Walter de la Mare's finest occult stories, this darkly thrilling tale tells the story of Lawford, a dull suburban man who accidentally falls asleep on a grave and wakes up possessed by the spirit - and face - of somebody else. Denounced by his family and friends as an impostor, Lawford's struggle to free himself of this possession leaves him a thoroughly changed man.



Gripping and poignant, THE RETURN encompasses domestic trauma, unrequited love and philosophical reflection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spooky tale 10 Jan. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Started well but the old fashioned prose can be quite difficult to follow at times. Great story though and a wonderful overview of life without electricity which is unimaginable now.
