Everyone has secrets. What if you can't remember yours?

'How long have you been sitting out here?'
'I got here yesterday.'
'Where did you come from?'
'I have no idea.'

Lily has only been married for three weeks. When her new husband fails to come home from work one night, she is left stranded in a new country where she knows no one.

Alice finds a man on the beach outside her house. He has no name, no jacket, no idea what he is doing there. Against her better judgement, she invites him into her home.

But who is he, and how can she trust a man who has lost his memory?

Review quote

Fresh and intriguing, with characters so real I ached for them. I loved I Found You -- Clare Mackintosh I've never read a book by Lisa that I didn't love. In this case, I ended up reading the whole thing in a day which is always a pleasure, and makes you feel as if you've had a little holiday from your own life. -- Jojo Moyes I LOVED I Found You. A proper thriller with wonderful characters. -- Sabine Durrant Lisa Jewell just keeps getting better. I thought nothing could top The Girls, then along came I Found You. Three separate strands, three very different characters with one dark mystery at its core. With another writer, I would be trying to solve the mystery by chapter two, but Lisa's books are so deliciously immersive, like a warm scented bath, you don't want to jump ahead to find out what happened, preferring to lie back and let the story wash over you. The plot of I Found You is gripping and compelling but, as always with Lisa. it's the characters that drive the book. With the possible exception of Anne Tyler, I can't think of another writer who so gets to the heart of what it is to be human, in all humanity's flawed decency. I Found You is a wise, compassionate, gripping tale by a storyteller who totally gets people - acting well and acting badly, but mostly muddling through trying our best. -- Tamar Cohen I Found You is exciting, entertaining and a crackingly good read ... Lisa Jewell knows exactly how to drip feed information that compels the reader to want to read more and more and I found myself unable to put the book down ... A perfect read. This is the first time I've read one of [Lisa's] books but it certainly won't be the last. * Linda's Book Bag *
