The Family Upstairs

 The Family Upstairs

Author: Lisa Jewel

Publisher: Altria Books

Year: 2019

Happy Friday friends! 

Lisa Jewel’s books always have what looks like different threads of stories and then she weaves all the threads together into a twisted narrative. 

The Family Upstairs tells the story of a posh, well off family who falls victim to a ruthless con man and his family. 

When Libby turns 25 years old, she inherits a large but decrepit house in in a tony section of London. When Libby was a baby she was found safe and healthy in the house where three adults were found dead. Libby teams up with a newspaper reporter to unravel the the mystery of what exactly happened in that house and what happened to the other children who lived there. 

The story is told from three different perspectives and bounces back and forth between past and present. The format kept me reading and guessing to see how everything fit together. It all adds up to an engrossing story. CW: child abuse, sexual abuse, physical and emotional abuse. 

What’s on everyone’s agenda for the weekend? Not much going on in my little corner of the world.
