Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Old House On The Corner by Maureen Lee

A moving contemporary novel set in Liverpool about the new residents of Victoria Square.

Victoria Macara is twenty-seven and lives in the old house on the corner that was once home to the family removal business. When the land is sold, she finds herself surrounded by a small estate of new properties called Victoria Square.

The newcomers who move in bring with them their own dramas: the mismatched lovers, Kathleen and Steve; Rachel, who is attempting to forget a terrible tragedy; upper-class Sarah arrives with her children after running away from an abusive husband, while Anna and Ernie are just after a quiet life. For Marie, Victoria Square is a refuge from the men who murdered her husband; for Judy, it means a fresh start after forty years of marriage to a man she'd thought she'd love for ever.

But it is to Gareth - trapped in a hopeless marriage - that Victoria is particularly drawn . . .
