Today’s Free Kindle eBook: A Place To Call Home
‘Liverpool’s Catherine Cookson’ — Crosby HeraldWith the Depression and the Great War both recent history and the Second World War about to begin, past tragedies are resurfacing and emotions are running high. This is particularly true for young Greta Peters who lost her mother, brother and sister to illness and now lives with her father, Harry. Helping them in their grief is their friendly neighbour Rene, and Greta’s barmaid grandmother, Cissie Hardcastle, both with old hurts of their own. With so many deaths in her family, it is no wonder that Greta believes her house to be haunted when she arrives home one foggy, winter’s evening to find a stranger lurking in the darkness. But this was certainly no apparition. Was he a would-be burglar caught in the act, or just a hungry, desperate man?When the two meet again, Greta discovers that the youth’s name is Alexander Armstrong and that he has recently left an orphanage from up north. With a connection existing between the Armstrong family and Greta’s dead mother, it seems unlikely that Alex would choose their house to burgle. So what exactly was it he was looking for in Greta’s house, and is it something that Greta herself can help him to find?As the bombs start to fall, new romances and friendships develop, but will they be strong enough to survive this new national crisis?And with fatalities at every explosion, will they even live to see a new age of peace?The latest in June Francis’s Liverpool-based sagas, A Place To Call Home is a heart-warming — and sometimes heart-wrenching — page-turner, that will keep you engrossed to the final paragraph.
