The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell

The thing I like about Lisa Jewell, is that you never know quite what to expect from her next book; she creates something a bit different each time, and what a great portrayal of an entirely dysfunctional family in her latest, ‘The Family Upstairs.’
Apparently from out of the blue, a single young woman inherits a valuable residence in Chelsea. Having grown up with her adoptive parents as an only child, Libby is about to discover a whole new other life; extended family as a sister, a daughter and a grand daughter; and the story of ‘The Family Upstairs,’ a cult-like existence based on lies, corruption and imprisonment.
Told from different perspectives and dipping back and forth through time, ‘The Family Upstairs,’ is an enthralling read.
