AN UNFORGETTABLE STORY ABOUT
A FAMILY WITH A TERRIBLE SECRET

When a tragedy breaks a family apart, what can bring it back together?

The Birds seem to be the perfect family: mother, father, four children, a picture-book cottage in the country.

But one Easter weekend, something happens - something so unexpected, so devastating, that no-one can bring themselves to talk about it.

The family shatters, seemingly for good.

Until, years later, they are forced to return to the house they grew up in, and to confront what really broke the family apart...

Praise for The House We Grew Up In

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

A poignant page-turner.

Fabulous Magazine, Sun on Sunday

Jewell cleverly and thoughtful portrays her steady decline and the effect it has on her family which has other secrets waiting to emerge. Imaginative and well executed.

Sunday Mirror

Top of the women’s fiction list this summer should be Lisa Jewell’s The House We Grew Up In.

Press Association

Unputdownable

Red Magazine

Her best novel to date.... It’s an evocative, thought-provoking and fascinating book that gets under your skin. Just brilliant.
