As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
This book came out in 2015, and this is a best-selling fiction book.
I bought this book a few years ago when I saw the beautiful alliums on the cover - I love alliums - and along with many of my fiction favorites, the cover is incredibly appealing to gardeners.
A Place for Us is,
“an engrossing novel about a woman who, on the eve of her eightieth birthday, decides to reveal a secret that may destroy her perfect family.”
Kirkus Reviews wrote:
"From an English estate called Winterfold, Martha Winter sends out invitations for her 80th birthday party with a puzzling statement:
'There will be an important announcement. We ask that you please be there.'
Only her husband, David, a well-known cartoonist, knows what this announcement might be.
The Winters have been fixtures in their Somerset village for 45 years, raising their three children, Florence, Bill, and Daisy.
Told from the perspectives of various family members as they receive Martha's invitations, it's clear this family's story is full of unanswered questions.”
This book is 448 pages of a heartwarming, true-to-life family saga - the perfect book to blissfully carry you away this winter.
