The day Martha Winter decided to tear apart her family began like any other day…
A big thank you to Headline Publishing for approving me for a review copy on Net Galley, in return for an honest review. This review is for Part Two in the four-part serialisation.
You can read my review for part one here.
The first part left you on one hell of a cliffhanger, and wow, Part 2 did not disappoint!
Evans has seriously picked up the pace for the second part, and I absolutely devoured this book, eagerly flicking through each page, desperate to know more.
We’re getting under the skin of the family a little more. There’s friction in Bill & Karen’s marriage. Cat has come home from Paris with her son, Luke, who no one knew existed. We’re learning more about Daisy – which is a part I have particularly enjoyed – and how there’s always been something a little wrong with her. Joe is getting a little too involved with the family. Florence is starting to come out of herself a bit more. Martha is still trying to keep her cool as head of the family, while desperately trying to keep everyone together, though preparing to make an announcement that is sure to cause some rifts. Poor David just doesn’t want to face any of it.
It’s a book of many reveals, excellently paced and beautifully written. I love how the chapters switch between the view points of all the characters, so you really get to know them all, and the characters themselves are so wonderfully written, so very human. They really developed well in this second instalment. It was a whirlwind of emotions to read, and I’ll admit, a tear or two may have been shed.
I loved it, and I’m desperate to get my hands on Part 3! (Released September 25th!)
Just as I predicted, A Place For Us has now claimed it’s rightful place with 5 lovely stars!
