Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"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)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The unforgettable story about 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 picture-book cottage in a village. A family in a sun-drenched kitchen filled with love and laughter.

Picture an Easter weekend when tragedy strikes - 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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lisa Jewell is one of a kind 24 juillet 2013

From the moment I picked up this book I couldn't put it down. I was immediately drawn in to the Bird family drama. The rich character development, alternate storylines and the completely bizarre yet absorbing plot left me wanting more. About to purchase another Lisa Jewell masterpiece. A must-read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A perfect read... 3 août 2013
Par jaffareadstoo - Publié sur
The Bird family have an idyllic existence living in a picture perfect English village in the eccentrically named Bird House. Megan, Bethan, Rory and Rhys have the kind of childhood than only exists in fairy tales, picnics on the lawn, Easter egg hunts in the nooks and crannies of the garden and rainbow filled afternoons of love and laughter with their mother, Lorelei and father, Colin. But on one Easter afternoon a tragedy of epic proportions rips apart the family and nothing will ever be the same again.

Lisa Jewell has written an entirely believable book which untangles the minutiae of family life, and quite simply reveals the vulnerabilities and insecurities which can unconsciously fester away until the hurt becomes palpable. Beautifully characterised, everyone could be people you know, in situations you can all too easily understand, and yet shining through the hurt and awfulness is a gem of a family who tug at your heartstrings with a poignancy that will leave you captivated

It's an absolute gem; it's one of those books that you really can't put down and have to keep reading until your eyes sting with tiredness.

Quite simply a perfect read and one that will stay with me for a long time.

This is not the book you might be expecting. It is not the hackneyed story of a family torn apart by a tragedy, as described on the cover. It is more the absorbing story of a woman's compulsion to hoard and the devastating impact this has on her home, her husband and her children.

The fey, beguiling, exasperating character of Lorelei is particularly well drawn. Indeed, all of Lisa Jewell’s characters are convincing creations and the author’s command of dialogue is impressive.

Ms Jewell’s descriptions of family’s picture-postcard home gradually filling up with what Lorelei calls 'mementos' and what we would call 'landfill' are conveyed with remarkable skill and a great deal of empathy. She forces her readers to confront what a hoarding compulsion actually looks, feels and even smells like.

Eventually, the plot lines with their unveiling of dark family secrets become just a little bit too Jeremy Kyle for my taste (why oh why do these things always have to be laid on with a trowel?). But otherwise, an unexpectedly good read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Family Ties 20 mars 2014
Par Susan R - Publié sur
This book opens with what appears to be a happy family having an Easter egg hunt. As the novel progresses, the reader sees the family fall apart after a horrible tragedy occurs on another Easter Sunday. The family ends up with the mother as a hoarder, the father in a strange relationship, one daughter who is very uptight, one who refuses to grow up and a son who disappears into the drug world. Any more information than that would give away too much of the story. The story line moves ahead by skipping back and forth from the past to the present and alternating family members but it is not difficult to follow the action. I found the story very very sad but very compelling. It was hard to put down because I cared about the characters and wanted to find out who they all survived their tumultuous lives and I really wanted to know if they found their way back to being a family again. This is a wonderful novel - well written with well defined characters. I would highly recommend it.

One man's treasure is another man's rubbish. This story portrays a family where innocence seems to reign and yet something sits just below the surface ready to break through the mirage. The author has managed to engage the reader by weaving magical moments with sinister secrets. As you read the book you become aware that all is not quite right with this family. I think this is the cleverness of the author. The secrets are dark and terrible and yet the family finally face the darkness within them all and find that they can create an even better unit than before. The past may have it's darkness but when understanding comes the family realise that even as odd as it may be this is their family and embracing that brings love and peace between the past and present.
