Lisa Jewell has a unique gift for creating original, complex characters who actually resemble people we might know. When I read her I realise how few authors can actually do this. This book shows her at the top of her game; The Making Of Us is compelling, clever, humane and heartbreaking. It's a cliche to say I couldn't put it down, but I'm afraid it's true. Wonderful. -- Jojo Moyes We've been fans of Lisa Jewell for absolutely ages, don'cha know, but we are even more impressed than usual by the latest novel ... Jewell has completely upped her game with this beautifully observed novel. 5 stars, heat A spirited novel of identity, love and loss. Woman & Home Jewell takes her writing to a new, more sophisticated level. Glamour Her best book yet ... Jewell has moved up a gear into David Nicholls territory. BooksellerFrom the Publisher:
In a hospice in Bury St Edmunds, a man called Daniel is slowly fading away. His friend Maggie sits with him every day; she holds his hand and she listens to the story of his life, to his regrets and to his secrets. And then he tells her about the children he has never met and never will. He talks of them wistfully. His legacy, he calls them. Lydia, Dean and Robyn don't know each other. Yet. And they are all facing difficult changes. Lydia is still wearing the scars from her traumatic childhood and although she is wealthy and successful, her life is lonely and disjointed. Dean is a young man, burdened with unexpected responsibility, whose life is going nowhere. And Robyn wants to be a doctor, just like her father - a man she's never met. But is her whole life built on an illusion? Three people leading three very different lives. All lost. All looking for something. But when they slowly find their way into each other's lives, everything starts to change...
