The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I just loved this book. Have never been let down by a book written by Lisa Jewell. They are all very special.
In this story, be prepared to just sit back and go with the flow. You never know what is coming next. It opens with a woman who had been adopted, turning 25. A letter arrives from a lawyer with news of an inheritance that she basically had no idea about. What a surprise to discover that she had inherited a house, but not just any house. This was a mansion in a very exclusive part of London.
But of course now she wants to know her story; who were her parents; what happened to them; and everything else that goes with it.
At first you might think that this is a very far fetched story, but you only have to think about the Jonesville massacre and you realize that this could very well happen somewhere.
An excellent read.
