"...prose so beautiful that it glitters on the page. Lisa Jewell
lays down piece after piece of mosaic, revealing the heart of the
Bird family, filled in equal measure with love and loss.
Unforgettable."--Jo-Ann Mapson, author of Solomon's Oak, Finding
Casey, and Owen's Daughter "Redbook"
"A dramatic look at siblings, parents, and hoarding."--Sophie Kinsella, author of Shopaholic to the Stars "Redbook"
"A gorgeous, powerful, affecting tale of a family both ordinary and extraordinary. Lisa Jewell is a wonderful storyteller, and The House We Grew Up In grips you from the first page to the last. I'm afraid to say it made me neglect both my children and my husband. The Bird family might be dysfunctional, but I was strangely sorry to leave it."--Anna Maxted, author of Getting Over It and Running In Heels "Redbook"
"Jewell cleverly frames the destruction of the Bird family ....an absolute page-turner."--Anna Maxted, author of Getting Over It and Running In Heels "Booklist"
"Lisa Jewell's quixotic Bird family functions like an operatic ensemble--each voice distinct, each singing its heart out, seemingly oblivious to the others. Yet somehow by the end of this engrossing, beautifully crafted novel, their separate stories will draw them back together, reminding us that, however hard we struggle against them, family ties are not easily undone."--Judith Ryan Hendricks, author of Bread Alone "Redbook"
"This richly rendered family saga is populated with such compelling characters and told in such luscious, insightful prose, that a singular tragedy is made universally relatable. You won't be able to stop thinking about it long after the book is over."--Jessie Sholl, author of Dirty Secret "Redbook"
"You'll be desperate to find out what messed this family up so badly."--Sophie Kinsella, author of Shopaholic to the Stars
"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, author of Me Before You
