Four years have passed since Justin Campbell’s
disappearance, a tragedy that rocked the small town of Southport, Texas. Did he
run away? Was he kidnapped? Did he drown in the bay? As the Campbells search
for answers, they struggle to hold what’s left of their family together.
Then, one afternoon, the impossible happens. The police call
to report that Justin has been found just miles away, in the neighboring town,
and, most importantly, he appears to be fine. Though the reunion is a miracle,
Justin’s homecoming exposes the deep rifts that have diminished his family, the
wounds they all carry that may never fully heal. Trying to return to normal,
his parents do their best to ease Justin back into his old life. But as thick
summer heat takes hold, violent storms churn in the gulf and in the Campbells’
hearts. When a reversal of fortune lays bare the family’s greatest fears—and
offers perhaps the only hope for recovery—each of them must fight to keep the
ties that bind them from permanently tearing apart.
A gripping novel with the pace of a thriller but the nuanced
characterization and deep empathy of some of literature’s most beloved novels, Remember Me Like This introduces Bret Anthony Johnston as one of the most
gifted storytellers writing today. With his sophisticated and emotionally taut
plot and his shimmering prose, Johnston reveals that only in caring for one
another can we save ourselves. Download and start listening now!
