A Review | I Found You by Lisa Jewell


I Found You By Lisa Jewell

 

What’s it About?

Lisa Jewell brings us another fresh and gripping thriller. Single mother Alice, finds a man lost on the beach just outside her house. Against her better judgement she takes him in, giving him clothes, food and somewhere to stay. She soon discovers that he has completely lost his memory. Alice’s compassion and attraction to the man leads her to continue to look after him and help him discover what he has lost. As they look for answers she starts to question whether she should trust a man with no recollection of his past.

Newly married Lily has recently moved to the U.K with her new husband. When he fails to make it home after work, she is left distraught, alone and stranded in a new country.

 

The Verdict

 

A fantastic read that will enthral you from the moment you turn the first page. I Found You is true escapism with believable characters that draw you in. Jewell paces three stories together to reveal twenty years’ worth of secrets and lies. This is a book you will devour in a few days.

There are a few scenes of disturbing violence and aggression but Jewell has woven these darker elements of the book in with a clear and structured plot. What you will really enjoy from this book is the deeply real characters and their own personal struggles throughout.

 

Favourite Quote

“She’d been acting the role of the scary woman for years because deep down inside she was scared. Scared of being alone. Scared that she’d had all her chances at happiness and blown each and every one.”
