"Somewhere the ghosts of Shirley Jackson and the Henry James of The Turn of the Screw are smiling, because a wildly talented young writer has joined their lineage."
-- George Saunders, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Lincoln in the Bardo

Entertainment Weekly's New Books to Read in July * Longlisted for the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize * Poets & Writers Annual Debut Fiction Roundup * "One of the best literary thrillers you'll read this year, I was hooked from page one." -- Cosmopolitan

Lydia and Lucas Moore are in their late twenties when a stranger enters their small world on Wolf Island. Lydia, the responsible sister, has cared for her pathologically shy brother, Lucas, ever since their mom's death a decade before. They live together, comfortable yet confined, in their family house by the sea, shadowed by events from their childhood.

When Lydia sees the stranger step off the ferry, she feels an immediate connection to him. Lucas is convinced the man, Cole Anthony, is the reincarnation of their baby brother, who died when they were young. Cole knows their mannerisms, their home, the topography of the island--what else could that mean? Though Lydia is doubtful, she can't deny she is drawn to his magnetism, his energy, and his warmth.

To discover the truth about Cole, Lydia must finally face her anxiety about leaving the island and summon the strength to challenge Cole's grip on her family's past and her brother. A deliciously alluring read, Goodnight Stranger is a story of choices and regrets, courage and loneliness, and the ways we hold on to those we love.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gault's moody, quietly chilling debut novel follows 28-year-old Lydia Moore, who works at the information booth on Wolf Island, a fictional Cape Cod island that is smaller and plainer than Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard. Lydia, whose parents are dead, is a triplet. One of her brothers died in infancy; the other, severely socially anxious Lucas, has become her responsibility. When a mysterious young man who calls himself Cole arrives on the island, Lucas becomes convinced that he's the reincarnation of their dead brother. Over the next few months, as winter arrives, Cole insinuates himself into their lives. Lydia, both attracted to the stranger and suspicious of him, works up the nerve to go off-island to investigate him. In the process, she finds out more than she would like about the history of her family. A suspenseful meditation on the many ways in which the past, consciously or not, shapes the present, the novel flirts with fantasy but ultimately stays grounded in the elemental realities of wind, tides, and the eroding foundations of memory.--Margaret Quamme Copyright 2019 Booklist"
