LoveReading Says

Oh how absolutely gorgeous (and a little bit heart-breaking) this is, ultimately a feel-good novel, I’ve fallen in love with The House That Made Us. A photograph album sits centre stage, with memories, beautiful strong memories, sitting snugly between the pages. Two stories are told, one between two people as they look through the album, while the other is a love story of fifty years moving forward to meet 2019. The album creates moments in time to wander through, and the house that sits in the photos opens its arms wide to gather you in for the most thought-provoking hug. Getting to know Mac and Marie feels as though you are experiencing their life alongside them. Their differences enhance their relationship, it feels so very very real as ups and downs, laughter and sorrow pepper the pages. There is an intriguing mystery at the heart of one side of this story, and Alice Cavanagh keeps the suspense lightly and tenderly thrumming through the pages. She covers sorrow and emotion with empathy and consideration and inserts moments of fun with an exquisite touch. In fact the many aspects and themes to this novel sit alongside each other easily, and rather beautifully. Although I cried, I’ve been left with the most warm and affectionate feeling for this story, for the people within it, and so The House That Made Us has been chosen as a LoveReading Star Book and Liz Pick of the Month.
