With the opening line of Harriet Evans’s ‘A Place for Us’ it is clear to see that this will be an emotionally charged and intriguing novel – one that is bound to encourage fans of the likes of Rosamund Pilcher, Maeve Binchy and Jojo Moyes to Barnsley House for its ‘Meet-the-Author’ lunch in the Potager restaurant on 23rd March.
London-based Harriet Evans will introduce introduce the Winter family, ostensibly a picture perfect household set in the beautiful bucolic surroundings of Winterfold. The polished veneer of Martha and David’s household soon displays its shortcomings when the family finds themselves together under the pretence of a birthday celebration. Before long, familial bliss gives way to revelatory secrets and failings but this no ordinary portrayal of family life; Harriet Evans has created an intellectual, beautifully crafted novel that weaves together love and loss over generations of a family who can no longer hold onto the secrets of the past.
Harriet Evans is a Sunday Times bestselling author with seven previous novels to her name. ‘A Place for Us’, was released in January 2015 by Headline Review and is undoubtedly, her most accomplished work to date.
