Cover: 'A Place in the Country'

Staff Review: "A Place in the Country" by Elizabeth Adler


Newly single Caroline and her teenage daughter Izzy are in desperate search for a change of scenery and a new home. After Caroline discovers her husband has been unfaithful throughout their marriage, Caroline knows she has to sacrifice her comfortable life in Singapore for anything that doesn't involve her ex-husband. Finding a renovated barn in the English countryside, Caroline sees her dream of owning her own restaurant fulfilled. But the chaos is far from over for Caroline and Izzy, and they have to rely on each other and their newfound friendships to help them through. This was a great summer read with enough surprises and loveable characters for any reader to enjoy.
