Today saw the publication by Headline Review of the first of four instalments of this book. It is available in ebook with the next part due out on the 28th August 2014. The complete novel will be published in January 2015. I was kindly sent a copy to review.
The story starts off with an element of intrigue. It is August 2012 and Martha Winter’s eightieth birthday is fast approaching. She had made a huge decision, one which is set to change things for good. It’s time to tell all. But how will Martha go about doing this?
The first part of ‘A Place for Us’ gives the reader a good introduction to the Winter family with each chapter being narrated by an individual character. I felt that this worked well as it told me a lot about their lives. I also like the way the story has been set in different locations.
A complex family with secrets from the past, I reckon Part Two is when things will really start to hot up. I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
I give the first part of ‘A Place for Us’ 4 out of 5.
