LoveReading View on A Place to Call Home

Tackling battered wives, an arranged marriage and sadly damaged people, this is a sensitive work full of people you really care for.  Ayesha and her silent 8-year old daughter escape an abusive arranged marriage and through a stroke of luck end up boarding in a Hampstead mansion owned by a reclusive ex-pop star.  What a lovely scenario which develops into a completely charming tale with its ups and downs, drama and tears, laughter and love, a pure delight.  Highly recommended.

A Place to Call Home Synopsis

In the dead of night, Ayesha takes her daughter, Sabina, and slips quietly from her home, leaving behind a life of full of pain. Boarding a coach to London, all Ayesha wants is a fresh start. Hayden, a former popstar, has kept himself hidden away for years. He's only opened up his home to two people - Crystal, a professional dancer with a heart of gold, 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.
