4.0 out of 5 stars Living the Dream in the Country, 29 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Safest Place (Paperback)
Suzanne Bugler's books all concentrate on family relationships, her descriptions so good that each time I read one of her books it feels like I am peeking through the windows on someone else's life.

In the safest Place starts with Jane persuading her husband to live their dream, this couple's dream is to live in the country. Once Jane decides that she wants to move and broaches the idea she quickly escalates to a full blown campaign to make the move happen. The couples two children, a quiet son Sam and a younger daughter Ella are promised an idyllic life but the dream soon becomes a little troubled as reality encroaches.

I don't read Suzanne Bugler's books for an action packed read, her books are far more about observing people and their relationships, however I was surprised that it took quite so long for the event to happen that is to change everything for all of them. The relationships are well observed, mother to teenage son, the envy Jane hopes to inspire to her London friends to that she feels towards her new friend in the country .the sadness of a marriage under strain and the way Jane feels like a teenage daughter when conversing with her own parents are all perfectly drawn.

Suzanne Bugler is an expert on mothers of all types as illustrated in her previous two books This Perfect World and The Child Inside
