Sarah Broadhurst's view...

It is when the third wife is killed that Adrian at last has a long hard look at his life. He has five kids, two from the first marriage, three from the second. It is when his eldest son Luke comes to live with him that things start to unravel. Lisa Jewell is a sensitive, clever author whose books never disappoint. We have great plots, great characters and a great insight into human nature. Well worth a read.

Reviews

'An emotionally intelligent, brilliantly plotted and beautifully written examination of a very modern family that will keep you gripped until the end.' Daily Mail, Books of the Year

'Something of a moral fable about modern relationships, this is a smart and enjoyable story' Sunday Mirror

'A moving read from one of our fave authors' Fabulous Mag, Sun on Sunday

'The narrative dips back and forth with various points of view from stunningly drawn characters and I devoured it in one long sitting. Take this to the beach, or indeed anywhere - I promise you won't regret it.' Daily Mail

About the Author

Lisa Jewell

Lisa 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, a book about young people just like her who lived in London, 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. Twelve 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.
