Book review a place to call home by Carole Matthews

In the dead of night ,Ayesha takes her daughter ,Sabina ,and slips quietly from her home ,leaving behind a life full of pain.Boading a coach to London ,all Ayesha wants is a fresh start .
Hayden ,a former popster ,has kept himself hidden away for years.hes only opened up his home to two people -crystal,a progressional dancer with a heart of golf ,and joy ,an ill tempered retiree with a soft spot for waifs and strays .
When crystal asks Hayden if Ayesha and Sabina can stay with them ,he reluctantly agrees and as different as they may be ,they quickly form an unlikely bond .So when enemies threaten their peaceful home ,they will do all they can to save it and each other .

I love Carole’s books that I’ve read before .
This book is beautiful and emotional and brought me close to tears more than once .Its a subject close to my heart and was amazing to watch AYesha grow and flourish and the impact she had all each character was so important .
Her daughter Sabina is like a wounded bird trying to find her feet again .
The character crystal is loud and brash ,the complete opposite to Ayesha however they help each other out to become new women .

This is a story of heartbreak and pain but also love and hope .
A beautiful powerful read .
