Summary: The FIRST of four exclusive part-serialisations of a A Place for Us by Harriet Evans - you'll be desperate to read on ...
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.

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.

Review: As some of you may remember I only purchased a Kobo e-reader and tablet last July. I registered on Netgalley and at first I could not work out how to get my beautiful electronic proofs onto my device. It is safe to say one of the books I was sent was archived by the time I worked it out sad but true. Well since then I now seem to know what I am doing yay. I received an email telling me I could automatically be accepted for Harriet Evans A Place For Us part one. Having devoured Harriet's Happily Ever After I have been itching to get the chance to read more from her and this was that perfect moment.
If I am brutally honest there is not a lot to tell based on part one. We are introduced to each of the characters with each of them having their own say. I truly love the way Harriet has built up the story as a reader you are constantly wondering about each character, and where their tale will take them.
I must admit I do really like Lucy the wannabe journalist, she just hasn't been given the lucky break she deserves or could her best scoop be closer to home than she realises. Is Lucy willing to risk it all for her career, what does this mean for her family.
It's safe to say even the most dysfunctional characters you'll warm to. Each character has their own distinctive voice and story and every family has their secrets.
What I will say is part one will have you on the edge of your seat you will be intrigued about Daisy's whereabouts and when you get to the very end of part one it will be a case of. OMG OMG OMG!!!! WHEN CAN I HAVE THE REST!!!! I am constantly checking Netgalley for more...
