THE RETURNED by Jason Mott is strange. I'm not sure if I liked it or not. The returned are those who have died but now have come back to earth. They are found in various places in the world not always wher they lived in life. At first they are sent back to family until so many returned. Lucille and Harold lost their son, Jacob at age 8. He drowned in the river. He returns but is it really their son? They are not sure. But Harold and Lucille love him just the same. I'm sure theirs a moral here but I cannot find it. As I said I am not sure if I liked it or not. It is a bit wordy with unnecessary description and conversations.
