First published in 2004 by Allison & Busby Limited. She hated this house. Since the deaths of her younger brother and sister from measles and her mother from pneumonia, it no longer felt like home. It was miserable coming into an empty, cold house when in the past, at the end of a school day, there were those she loved to greet her. A pan of scouse would be on the fire or a hotpot in the oven, and smiling eyes would welcome her and a loving voice would ask how her day had been.

A Place to Call Home is the first solo album by Joey Tempest, the vocalist in the Swedish hard rock band Europe. It was released on 20 April 1995 and presented a different sound compared to Europe. I needed a change from the Europe sound," Tempest said in an interview, "I wanted to prove myself as a singer/songwriter for sure, but for me it was more of a journey to learn about making music. I went to see a lot of new young artists. got into stuff like Van Morrison and Bob Dylan.

With the Depression and the Great War in recent history and the Second World War about to begin, emotions are running high. This is particularly true for young Greta Peters who lost her mother, brother and sister to illness and now lives with her father, Harry. Helping them in their grief is their friendly neighbor Rene, and Greta's barmaid grandmother, Cissie Hardcastle. But with so many deaths in her family, it is no wonder that Greta believes her house to be haunted when she comes home one foggy, winter's evening to find a stranger lurking in the darkness. But this was certainly no apparition. Was he a would-be burglar caught in the act, or just a hungry, desperate man? When the two meet again, Greta discovers that the youth's name is Alexander Armstrong and that he has recently left an orphanage from up north. With a connection existing between the Armstrong family and Greta's dead mother, it seems unlikely that Alex would choose their house to burgle. So what exactly was it he was looking for in Greta's house, and is it something that Greta herself can help him to find?

Set in England during the second World War, A Place to Call Home, is rich with colorful characters and history. I loved most of the characters, they acted and sounded like real people, particularly Greta who was wise well beyond her years. I had a few feelings of exasperation, especially with Rene and Harry, but overall this was a great read. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this book. It takes you on a journey through a very different time than most novels. You will thoroughly enjoy it.

Loved the storyline and would read more. Clean read. Historical outlook. Not crazy about the required number of pertinent words.

June I absolutely loved this book. Your storytelling is out-of-this-box. After I understood each character I couldn't put the book down and this meant little sleep until I finished. Congratulations on writing a wonderful and interesting story.

I was pleased to find another book by June Francis through the weekly Endeavor Press newsletter and I jumped at the chance to read it for free!
This was my second book by this author, and I'd say that I enjoyed it as much as my first (The Pawnbroker's Niece). The setting of the book was World War II. I found the characters believable and likeable. Ms Francis dealt with unpleasant topics in a restrained and tasteful way, without minimizing their impact on the characters.
I really felt the writing was reminiscent of Catherine Cookson's works, albeit with different stories and scenarios. Recommended.
