The House We Grew Up In - book giveaway

The_House_We_Grew_Up_InThe unforgettable story of a family with a secret at its core - from Top Ten bestseller Lisa Jewell, author of Ralph's Party, The Making of Us and Before I Met You.

Picture a charming cottage in an English village. A family in a sun-drenched kitchen, filled with love and laughter.

Picture an Easter weekend when tragedy strikes; a tragedy so unexpected - so devastating - that no one can talk about it.

The years pass; the children become adults. Gradually they lose touch, as the secret between them tears them apart.

And then something happens that calls them back to the house they grew up in – and to what really happened that Easter weekend all those years ago.


"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

About the author

Lisa_JewellLisa 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, 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. Eleven 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.
