From #1 bestselling author Lisa Jewell, author of The Family Upstairs, Watching You and Then She Was Gone

AN UNFORGETTABLE STORY ABOUT
A FAMILY WITH A TERRIBLE SECRET

When a tragedy breaks a family apart, what can bring it back together?

The Birds seem to be the perfect family: mother, father, four children, a picture-book cottage in the country.

But one Easter weekend, something happens – something so unexpected, so devastating, that no-one can bring themselves to talk about it.

The family shatters, seemingly for good.

Until, years later, they are forced to return to the house they grew up in, and to confront what really broke the family apart...

Listen to a sample

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!

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

Poignant, heart-wrenching & beautifully told, the author's best tale yet.

The Sun

Beautifully written.

Heat

Simply stunning.
