“A Place for Us” by Liza Gyllenhaal

“A Place for Us” by Liza Gyllenhaal is a story of every parent’s nightmare.  The Bostocks are a family for whom everything has gone right.  They are a privileged family and are well liked in their small town.  Brook is from a wealthy family.  She married her sweetheart and they have two children.  Her son is in college and her daughter is a busy ten-year-old.

All seems to be going well for them until a drinking episode with minors and an assault that happened in their house promises to become a national scandal.  This story is about the children involved and what happens to them during the height of the storm of repercussions.  This is the story of a family trying to hang on to their love and respect for each other.

I would recommend book, but for me it was such a sad story.  I would not want to read it again, nor would I want to read something like it.  It was well written, but such a downer.   I received a free print copy of this book in return for my honest review from the publisher, Penguin Group and Night Owl Reviews. The opinions expressed here are my own.
