Cei care se intorc spune o poveste dulce-amaruie despre pierderea celor dragi, despre regasire, despre impacarea cu viata si cu moartea. Ce e de facut cand la usa bate baietelul pe care l-ai crezut mort decenii in sir si este la fel de mic si de adorabil ca altadata, desi tu ai imbatranit intre timp? L-ai primi in casa si in inima sau ai fi ingrozit si l-ai alunga? Este dilema cu care se confrunta mai intai locuitorii din oraselul Arcadia din statul american Carolina de Nord, scena principala a romanului. Unii dintre ei cedeaza nervos, altii devin agresivi, iar altii vad o sansa nesperata in regasirea celor pe care i-au iubit. Desi fantastica, povestea celor care se intorc este si povestea celor care raman. Sau mai ales a lor.
