Summary
  • "An emotionally searing novel of second chances from an author whose "gorgeous and wise prose" (Cheryl Strayed) will stay with you long after you're done....June is undoubtedly in transition. Reeling from her divorce, trying to stay sober, and faced with a completely stalled career, she's recently returned to the beautiful Oregon coast where she grew up. She must decide what to do with her late and much-loved grandparents' charming cedar-shingled home, a place haunted by memories of her childhood...June hires Jameson to renovate the old house to sell. He too is unmoored as he struggles to redefine his marriage in the aftermath of tragic loss. Over the course of the summer, their conversations about the house quickly turn to the personal--of secrets hidden in walls and of stories from the past half-told. June and Jamison repel and attract, sensing kinship and shying away from hurt. But what can the future hold as long as the past's grip remains so firm?...Brimming with empathy, The Days When Birds Come Back, like the house itself, is a graceful testament to endurance, rebuilding, and the possibilities of coming home"--
  • "From the author of the hugely popular Things We Set on Fire, a deeply emotional novel of three wounded souls brought together by a historic house on the Oregon coast"--
Summary
A woman struggling with her divorce, sobriety and a stalled career returns to the Oregon coast of her childhood to renovate and sell her late grandparents' memory-laden home and shies away from a relationship with a contractor who is reeling from his own losses
