The second of four exclusive part-serialisations of a A Place for Us by Harriet Evans will reunite you with the Winter family …
The day Martha Winter decided to tear apart her family began like any other day.
So opens A Place for Us by Sunday Times bestselling author Harriet Evans, a book you’ll dive into, featuring a family you’ll fall in love with … and never want to leave. If you devour Rosamund Pilcher and Maeve Binchy and have discovered Jojo Moyes, you’ll be thrilled to add Harriet Evans to your collection of favourite authors.
The house has soft, purple wisteria twining around the door. You step inside.
The hall is cool after the hot summer’s day. The welcome is kind, and always warm.
Yet something makes you suspect life here can’t be as perfect as it seems.
After all, the brightest smile can hide the darkest secret.
But wouldn’t you pay any price to have a glorious place like this?
Welcome to Winterfold.
Martha Winter’s family is finally coming home.
After finishing Part 1 I had to read the next part.
Part 2 is about the Party. The build up to it, the preparations with some flashbacks woven in.
Part 2 was just as gripping as part 1. While some secrets were revealed in part 1 there are still so many that are yet to be revealed.
The format was the same as Part 1 with each chapter focusing on one character. In this part we got to know the characters better. The flashback chapters provided some interesting background.
I’m keeping this review fairly short because I don’t want to give anything away.
This book was gripping and addictive. I read it in almost one sitting and instantly started the next part. Harriet is an excellent writer and I look forward to reading more of her books in the future.
