Review: The Making of Us

The Making of Us The Making of Us by Lisa Jewell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have read quite a few of books by Lisa Jewell and love them. I especially love the audio versions as they are so true to life. Her English settings are so real that you can reach out and touch the buildings and flowers and smell the aromas of the cities and countrysides.

The main characters in this story are three people who in one way or other discover that their parentage was through a donor clinic. It seems that you now can trace your family members through various websites and DNA tests.

As the story opens we learn that Lydia is a self made millionaire, quite a scientist. Robyn is a young girl in university studying to be a doctor and Dean has a girlfriend who is expecting a baby soon. We also learn about Paul, a Frenchman living in London who has been diagnosed with cancer. His lady friend, Maggie is determined to help him in his last days and makes discoveries that nobody could have predicted.

An excellent read.
