We’re off schedule again people… But this time I’m properly rested and hopefully coherent (at least until nightshifts start again tonight). It is, of course, because of the nights that we’re departing from the schedule – I didn’t realise that Part 2 was nearly here until I saw someone else review it… Anyhow we left A Place for Us with me begging to find out what happened next in a slightly sleep deprived manner, after the end of Part 1 dropped a fairly major bombshell on the reader.
Well, what can I say. In Part 2 the bombshell is unloaded onto the rest of the characters – along with a few other secrets – and then we’re left on another cliff hanger. Honestly, this serialisation malarkey isn’t good for my blood pressure. There. That’s all I can say about the plot without giving too much away. Except that we learn more about the characters – and in particular the absent Daisy.
I am desperate to know what happens next (again) and Harriet Evans has surprised me with some of the twists and turns we’ve had in this second part. She’s also written a novel which (so far) seems to really lend itself to being broken up into chunks to torment the reader. I think this part is shorter than part one – but it’s packed with character development, plot movement and surprises so you don’t notice. I’m very excited about part three – because based on what’s happened so far, I’m fairly sure I have no idea what’s going to happen next.
