Description

Instant New York Times Bestseller

“As always, Harper skillfully evokes the landscape as she weaves a complicated, elegant web, full of long-buried secrets ready to come to light.”
-The New York Times Book Review

Kieran Elliott's life changed forever on the day a reckless mistake led to devastating consequences.

The guilt that still haunts him resurfaces during a visit with his young family to the small coastal community he once called home.

Kieran's parents are struggling in a town where fortunes are forged by the sea. Between them all is his absent brother, Finn.

When a body is discovered on the beach, long-held secrets threaten to emerge. A sunken wreck, a missing girl, and questions that have never washed away...

    I was excited to read this book because I loved Ms. Harper’s other novels, but I was very disappointed with “The Survivors.” I didn’t like any of the characters and it seemed as if several plot points came to nothing. It just doesn’t measure up to her earlier work.
  • Suspenseful but confusing

    The author takes too long to let us know who’s who. The tangled backstory takes up too much of the tale. A solid B-
  • Kept me guessing til the end

    Such an incredibly amazing story of lives in a small town that tragedy has tied them together in their grief loss and guilt. Yet, the real story of what happened a decade ago doesn’t surface until another death and a life is taken far too young eerily on the same beach as the first harrowing tragedy.
