Land of the Living

Charlie is haunted by his past, memories of horrific events follow his every step and he finds no solace in waking from his nightmares. After months spent lost in the jungles of Assam, Charlie is one of few lucky survivors. But his past seems inescapable, and he feels as though his mind will spend the rest of its days walking the same path through those wildernesses. This touching novel explores themes of survival and isolation and asks readers what it is that the living owe the dead.
