A Place of Safety

by Tamsin Reeves

An issue-led novel of multiple voices focused on Martha, her broken marriage and the tangled web of lives around her. Left alone with her kids, she takes in an asylum seeker lodger and unwittingly unleashes prejudice. When a young girl goes missing who is telling the truth? A raw and ambitious page turner which markets itself as a thriller/love story but is more about loss, manipulation, trauma and pain.
