Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 10 December 2013
The House We Grew Up In is another excellent offering from Lisa Jewell. It tells the story of the Bird family. Mother, Lorelei, is a terrible hoarder and this has an effect on her whole family - husband, Colin, and her children, Megan, Beth, Rory and Rhys. Easter weekends were special for Lorelei but on one such occasion a tragedy strikes and nothing is ever the same again. The family home is a central part of the story so the title is very accurate in that respect.

I thought this was a great read. It's an emotional storyline, telling how a family that is already showing hairline cracks can be torn apart completely. Most of the chapters start with an email, followed by a section in the current day, and then going back through the lives of the family from when the children were small. Gradually it all unfolds and you start to get a greater understanding of what has happened.

I've never read a bad Lisa Jewell book. She's a consistent writer and one which I would recommend.
