“He knew it the same way the woodsman knew it, because he knew trees: but he also knew it with the knowledge of the Wild Man of Greenhollow, who felt every slow green beat of the forest’s heart.”

Review: The Family Upstairs

The Family Upstairs

“It all happened so slowly, yet so extraordinarily quickly, the change to our parents, to our home, to our lives, after they arrived. But that first night, when Birdie appeared on our front step with two large suitcases and a cat in a wicker box, we could never have guessed the impact she would have, the other people she would bring into our lives, that it would all end the way it did. We thought she had just came to stay for the weekend.”

Lisa Jewell has done it again! If you’re a fan of thrillers, you’ve probably read one of her books before. Her latest, The Family Upstairs, is another fast-paced story that will keep you totally absorbed until the very end.

If you’re looking for a magical book to get cozy with this winter, mark your calendars for November 5 and be sure to get your hands on a copy of Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw!
