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.

 A Place for Us is being released in four parts, this is a review of the frist part (Obviously).

The story focuses on different family members, each have a secret, unwilling to reveal it to their family. But there is one big secret, that has been hidden for so long. This secret is revealed towards the end of part one and I really need part 2 to be released so that I can read it as quickly as possible. I need to know how the family will react to this little bombshell.

No-one is willing to talk about their secrets, to be open with one another. The clue for what each family member is hiding can be found in what they are not saying. There is something going on under the surface, lurking. And as I am terrible at guessing I had for the majority of the book no really clue where it was leading or what the secret actually was. I was way off the mark. But I won’t spoil it be saying what my guesses were.

Part one  of A Place for Us focuses on how the family operate when they are separate, any interaction between them is limited, awkward. It will be interesting to see how the family will act when they get together, forced into the same country, let alone the same room.

Here’s too the next part where, hopefully, more will be revealed!
