SINCE her debut, Ralph’s Party, in 1998, Lisa Jewell has been notching up bestsellers left, right and centre, and her latest superb offering, I Found You, is sure to join the ranks.
Forty-something single mother of three Alice befriends a man she finds sitting on the beach, who claims to have lost his memory and has nothing of significance about his person.
Meanwhile, 21-year-old Lily, recently emigrated to London from Ukraine, suspects that her husband Carl has gone missing when he doesn’t return home from work one evening.
While Lily’s marriage is thrown into question when the police inform her that Carl Monrose never existed, the stranger Alice takes into her home is beginning to unlock memories that hearken back to an incident that occurred in 1993, involving a family holiday that ended in tragedy.
However, are the memories better left undisturbed? A story that is incredibly tense and spectacularly redemptive. One absolutely not to be missed.
