The Bird family is perfect. Mom, Lorelei, Dad, Colin, Megan, Bethan, and the twins, Rory and Rhys. As the children grow, Lorelei saves all their artwork and other mementoes. After the death of Rhys, the family begins to come apart. The children grow up and go their separate ways - each having their own issues to deal with. Lorelei ultimately is alone in the big house and she becomes the county's worst hoarder. As they return to the house to clean it out after Loerlei's death, they finally cocme to understand the impact Rhy's death had on each of them and unearth secrets hidden among all of the clutter. ( )

What a sad and bittersweet story. We all have regrets, big and small, but everyone deals with them differently. This book follows the Bird family-dad, mom, 2 daughters, 2 sons, and a few miscellaneous characters to make a perfectly normal, abnormal family. Told from each character’s point of view at some point, we get to see all aspects of the family. What’s left is the raw, open wounds of love. The book is a bit long, but ultimately each word adds something to the story. There are a few small family “mysteries” that are nicely resolved by the end. ( )

Lisa Jewell is such a talented writer. I’ve always been a fan of dysfunctional family stories, and she did a fantastic job of creating relatable, sympathetic characters. I both hated and pitied each character in turn (except for Lorelai--she was selfish and refused to get help and acknowledge how much her actions were hurting those around her), which to me is a testament to Lisa Jewell’s talent.

After having read Then She Was Gone this past January I knew I wanted to read Lisa Jewell again. The House We Grew Up In centers on the Bird family and their secrets, heartache and healing. The story goes back and forth from past to present day as we get each family member’s story. The matriarch of the house is a hoarder. When the children were growing up Lorelei seemed like an eccentric stay at home mom with a house full of knick knacks and the walls covered in her children’s drawings, but as the years passed this turned into a full on hoard situation. Her husband Colin is a quiet teacher who turns a blind eye to the hoarding, their twins sons are Rhys and Rory and their daughters are Meg and Beth. The neighbor Vicky and her children also become part of the Bird’s lives.

There is a devastating event that takes place on Easter weekend and it the catalyst that begins to tear the family apart. I found that the author gave each character enough depth so that you see how their home situation affects them for the rest of their lives. This is always an interesting topic, the way we grow up and how it helps to shape the people we become.

Author Jewel describes the hoard perfectly and I felt claustrophobic as I read some scenes. She dives into the complexities of family relationships and showcases how unconventional they can sometimes be.
I recommend this one if you enjoy books about family issues and relationships.
