The House We Grew Up In Summary

The House We Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell

Meet the Bird Family All four children have an idyllic childhood: a picture-book cottage in a country village, a warm, cosy kitchen filled with love and laughter, sun-drenched afternoons in a rambling garden. But one Easter weekend a tragedy strikes the Bird family that is so devastating that, almost imperceptibly, it begins to tear them apart. The years pass and the children become adults and begin to develop their own quite separate lives. Soon it's almost as though they've never been a family at all. Almost. But not quite. Because something has happened that will call them home, back to the house they grew up in - and to what really happened that Easter weekend all those years ago.

The House We Grew Up In Reviews

"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 *

About Lisa Jewell

Lisa Jewell had always planned to write her first book when she was fifty. In fact she wrote it when she was twenty-seven and had just been made redundant from her job as a secretary. Inspired by Nick Hornby's High Fidelity, a book about young people just like her who lived in London, she wrote the first three chapters of what was to become her first novel, Ralph's Party. It went on to become the bestselling debut novel of 1998. Fifteen bestselling novels later, she lives in London with her husband and their two daughters. Lisa writes every day in a local cafe where she can drink coffee, people-watch and, without access to the internet, actually get some work done . . .
