Review

"Clever, intelligent and believable on a subject few of us really understand. Lorrie is one of the most vivid - and complex - characters I've read in years. Wonderful." (Jojo Moyes)

"Simply stunning." (Daily Mail)

"Poignant, heart-wrenching & beautifully told, the author's best tale yet." (The Sun)

"Compelling… possibly the author’s best yet… An intensely moving study of grief and family relationships, this is also a fantastically gripping story with a couple of powerful shocks." (Hello!)

"Beautifully written." (Heat)

I am slowly getting my way through all of Lisa Jewells books haven't read most of them and this, my latest one was just beautiful. I admit to being rather disappointed by The Girls which was the last one I read, and when I picked up this for the first few chapters I wondered whether I'd ever get into this but Im so glad I perserved. This book I think affected me more than any of the others and really left a strong effect on me, a poignant, sweet, sad and dark tale of a families complexities. I cried for Loralei, for all her faults she was a character I derived strange sympathy for, parts of her eccentric character reminded me a lot of my late Grandmother. Worryingly, sometimes me aswell. Especially finding it hard to let go of sentimentality and nostalgia. The emails were particularly poignant to me, Loraleis openness, honesty and sadness really did affect me even if I did also relate a lot to her children's frustration and conflicting feelings of their own lives. In particular Bethan stood out to me. This book truly is a marvel, it's doesn't necessarily have a lot of action or thrills but it's a painstakingly honest, dark, poignant and real look at family life. I find it so hard to pick a favourite of Lisa Jewells books, but this would have to be up there.

I loved this book! Avery well told tale a family life. Of course a beguilingly dysfunctional family with a dark secret no one knows until the end. The repercussions of this secret are tragic but understandable. I this no most families are peculiar unto them selves, even the most idyllic, I this think, if you dig deep enough, will have something in their closet! A good holiday read.

I've enjoyed the story and the characters are well developed but I'm a bit tired of time hopping stories to be honest....part of the tale told in recent times and the history released in letters, flashbacks, photos whatever.....

Totally drew me I to this family and its curious strange behaviour that I suppose is unique in all families. I found it a bit toe curling but Lisa Jewel kept me engrossed enough to keep going. Good enjoyable read

Loved this book so much: brilliantly written and a great reflection of hoarding disorder. My own mother suffered with this and I saw our story in this including the months it took us to clear her house.
