An utterly stunning novel of love, loss, the insidious nature of secrets, and the enduring power of words. I Saw a Manfulfills the promise of Owen Sheers' acclaimed novel, Resistance.

When journalist Caroline Marshall dies while on assignment in Pakistan, her grief-stricken husband, Michael, leaves their cottage in Wales and returns to London. He quickly develops a friendship with his neighbours, Josh and Samantha Nelson, and their two young daughters. Michael's growing relationship with the family marks the beginning of a long healing process.
     But his period of recovery comes to an abrupt end when a terrible accident brings the burden of a shattering secret into his life. How will Michael bear the agonizing weight of guilt as he navigates persistent doubts on the path to attempted redemption? The answer, revealed poignantly in Sheers' masterly prose, is eloquent, resonant, and completely unforgettable.
