'The House We Grew Up In' by Lisa Jewell

Release date: 18th July 2013

ISBN No:  978 1846059247

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.

  1. Ooh, I'm pretty picky when it comes to contemporary fiction but I'm really drawn by that blurb!

  2. Thanks for calling by Rinn and for leaving your comment :-) I would be the same as yourself and only post about books that I think may be of interest to others. The blurb about this one attracted me too. Have a great week ahead! :-)
