Emotionally charged and compelling, Schulman’s haunting novel depicts the return of three brothers to the family cottage where old enmities and dark secrets threaten to disrupt the scattering of their mother’s ashes.
Years ago, they fled the lake house.
Now, the brothers have returned.
Three brothers return to the family cottage by the lake where, more than two decades earlier, a catastrophe changed the course of their lives. Now, they are here to scatter their mother's ashes - young men, estranged but bound together by the history that defines them. Their lives have been spent competing for their father's favour and their mother's love, in a household more like a minefield than a home. What really happened that summer day when everything was blown to pieces?
The Survivors is a suspenseful, haunting novel about three brothers and their reckoning with the events of one disputed, disastrous summer.

'You'll cry for these brothers: for the men they became, for the boys they were, for the innocence they lost. Alex Schulman will take you deep into an emotional labyrinth, exploring how we can spend our whole lives retelling the same childhood stories until all of a sudden we ask - Was that really what happened?' - Fredrik Backman, author of A Man Called Ove
'The Survivors is a tight, tense marvel of emotional and psychic pain that is as chilling as it is heart-breaking. With precise, evocative prose it winds and coils towards a remarkable conclusion that left me breathless.' - Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street and These Women

I’m giving 4 stars to this purely because of the ending. I struggled with the way it jumped around in time to tell the family history as well as the present day. It did explain how each of the family members ended up... More
I was looking forward to reading this book and had high expectations but sadly I just couldn’t get into the story at all. Unfortunately this was not the book for me,
