A Place For Us by Harriet Evans

A Place For UsA Place For Us by Harriet Evans
My rating: 4 of 5 stars



When I read the first installment I only gave this 2 stars, it did almost nothing for me.

Now that I was able to read this in full, its completely brought everything together for me.

All families have secrets, no matter how big or small they are, some are just little secrets that won't really harm anyone or change their entire life unlike this one

When they are all going to be invited to a birthday party where ubeknown to them, a revelation will take place that will not only alter they're lives, and their outlook, but how they see their parents, its amazing to watch this unravel before your eyes.

I'm so glad I got the entire book, it really made a difference to how I viewed this story.


Thanks to Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books via net galley for my read to review copy



From international bestselling author Harriet Evans, an engrossing new novel about a woman who, on the eve of her eightieth birthday, decides to reveal a secret that may destroy her perfect family.

The day Martha Winter decided to tear apart her family began like any other day.

When Martha, a wife and mother of three, sits down one late summer’s morning to write out the invitations to her eightieth birthday celebration, she knows that what she is planning to reveal at the party could ruin the idyllic life she and her husband David have spent over fifty years building…

But she has to let her family know what she and David have sacrificed. She can’t live a lie any more.

The invitation goes out far and wide, calling her three children and their families back home to Winterfold, their rambling house in the heart of the English countryside. They are Bill, the doctor; Florence, the eccentric academic; and Daisy, the child who never fit in. As the story unfolds, each character reveals the secrets, joys, and tragedies they are wrestling with through the confines of the family. What will happen when Martha finally tells the truth?
