    1. I have to admit to being just a little biased here because Carole Matthews is an all-time favourite author. I’ve read all her books and there isn’t one that I haven’t enjoyed. A Place to Call Home is a slightly darker read than usual in that it touches on the subject of domestic abuse but it still has her trademark lightness of touch and sense of fun.It was a real stroke of luck for Ayesha and Sabina Rasheed when they found sanctuary with Hayden and his lodgers after escaping from Ayesha's [...]


    2. I have to say that i totally love it. Ayesha mangsa penderaan suami nekad melarikan diri dari rumah. Segala perancangan sudah dibuat berbulan lamanya dan akhirnya dia berjaya melarikan diri dari suami bersama anak perempuannya.Sabrina sejak melihat ibunya didera dia mula trauma. Tidak boleh bercakap.Disebabkan pusat penempatan perlindungan dah penuh, ayesha beruntung apabila staff di situ membantu ayesha memdapatkan tempat perlindungan sementara di sebuah rumah lain.A place to call home is a nov [...]


    3. 4 Heart Breaking & Heart Warming Stars.A Place Called Home is the first book I have read by Carole Matthews. What an absolute pleasure and joy every page was. I devoured the book over a weekend, and experienced pretty much every emotion available while reading it.This is a house of broken hearts.This is a book quite simply that highlights all that is good and all that is bad in the world today. I was in equal parts charmed and horrified as the story progresses. The story begins with Ayesha R [...]


    4. Although i've discovered recently that i like Carole Matthews books this one i couldn't finish. I didn't like the way it was written and i don't believe that someone in an abusive marriage would be ok being on her own in a room with a strange man a matter of days after leaving her husband. I know this is fiction but if you're going to write about such a serious subject i feel it needs to be accurate and in that respect i didn't think this was.



    5. You probably all know by now that I am the biggest Carole Matthews fan ever! I absolutely adore all her books, but this one I felt was particularly special. The suspense in parts, was just incredible and made me wonder if Carole would ever consider switching genres. She is just fabulous at writing romantic comedy but I did wonder how incredible she’d be at writing thrillers too! She certainly had me holding my breath and clutching at my chest at more than one point.I think that the subject mat [...]


    6. I've read all of Carole's books so was looking forward to this one. It didn't disappoint. There was a real mixture of characters that seemed to work together and I enjoyed the different backgrounds and how they had all come together in one house. Okay so it was a bit predictable but that's okay. A very enjoyable read from one of my favourite authors.


    7. I actually thought this would be chick-lit, since the cover is so icky, and I needed some light reading for a long distance flight. But it is SO much more, and I really, really enjoyed the reading experience. The characters were vivid and alive and I found myself rooting for them. And the story is modern, believable and thought-provoking. What a lovely surprise! Try it - you’ll probably be delighted.Thank you Leslie for recommending it. 😊


    8. Carole Matthews has long been one of my favourite authors, but in recent years I haven’t kept up with her novels as much as I would have liked to, with my most recent Matthews read being Wrapped Up In You back in 2011. I don’t quite know why, beacause I do enjoy her books, I just felt like I needed a break; it’s happened with a few authors I used to devour – their books just didn’t have the same charm for me, which is weird. Perhaps it’s because I’ve grown up with their books, and [...]


    9. Really enjoyed this book what I would call an easy read, the author kept you guessing and you were tempted to turn to the last page, Carole Matthews never ceases to come up with a story that includes laughs mystery and a touch of love which we all love.


    10. The last book by Carole that I reviewed was Calling Mrs Christmas – my Christmas book of the year, and I still think it’s a travesty of justice that it didn’t make the final cut for Romantic Novel of the Year. This one is rather different, a teeny bit darker in its theme, but every bit as enchanting. Ayesha and her daughter Sabina – who hasn’t spoken in some time, because of the violence she’s witnessed at home – find refuge with a most unusual household. Hayden is a former pop sta [...]


    11. I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of this book and I absolutely loved it. I've read all of Carole's books and I honestly think that they just get better and better.This book is about a lovely lady called Ayesha and her daughter Sabina. One night Ayesha decides she has had enough of the abuse her husband metes out and decides to take her daughter and find somewhere safe for them to live. In the book we follow them on their journey and the characters they meet are very real. Hayden, th [...]


    12. Love it, absolutely loved it!Although a romance, it was so much more, and I think it's the best of Carole Matthews' three I have read so far this year.So so pleased I found this author.


    13. A Place to Call Home is a book about second chances. Although I enjoyed reading it I had some problems with it. My biggest problem was that the premise of the story felt completely implausible. It is almost a modern fairy tale; poor-abused woman meets tortured-millionaire hero… and of course, they find solace in each other’s arms. My second problem was with the end, actually with the last quarter of the book. Heroine does something that pissed me off and hero accepts heroine’s decision as [...]


    14. Read as part of the 2015 Reading Challenge - A book from an author you love that you haven't read yet.One of only a couple from the 20+ Carole Matthews books that I haven't read. As enjoyable as ever!


    15. Such a beautiful, heart-warming story with lovable characters. Carole did a wonderful job with the characters. I absolutely adored Crystal!




    16. Couldn't put this one down I was hooked! So glad Ayesha escaped her husband as I'm sure some unfortunate arnt so lucky. Sabrina's progress is heart warming and the other characters give the story more depth. Very relatable in areas. My one criticism is the reaction to the incident when they are attacked in Hayden's home, at night they all go to sleep as usual and the next day they all seem to go back to normal until Ayesha suddenly decides to run away. Hayden goes to an interview and crystal goe [...]


    17. Loved this book! Didn't want to put it down. The ending could perhaps have been a little better, but overall an excellent book. I loved the way all the characters were so different, yet really complimented each other. The house was definitely full of people that, on paper, should not have worked and shouldn't have got on, but they just did! When it came down to it, they all pulled together to help each other out. A great story by a great author. Will read more by Carole Matthews in the future, a [...]


    18. I couldn't believe what I had just read. What I thought was a simple light read turned out to be an emotion provoking novel. I was truly surprised by the some of the scenes in the book that I was not expecting it to have. It felt like I was watching a series TV, anticipating when the conflict would arise. This book brought tears to my eyes in different chapters and I am happy with the ending, though quite abrupt.


    19. This is the first time that I'm writing a review for a book so late after reading it. I've got my review copy in April and read it to post my review punctually around it release date back then, but actually I had so many mixed feelings about the story that I didn't know what in fact I am thinking about this novel. It seemed so different to the other Carole's books and I just couldn't come clear with my feelings about it. And then, when I was ready to write my review, well, life get in the way, t [...]


    20. Beatiful and gripping story abput finding a place to call home. The book has an instant connection with the characters. Loved it.



    21. I loved this book.From the blurb on the back I was not expecting what was inside. I was hooked from start to finish and could not put it down. I loved the fact that the story was from Ayesha's perspective and coming from her background I can only imagine in real life how hard these ladies find thier life. I know from personal experience what courage it takes always looking over your shoulder. I loved the ending also. All in all a fantastic read. Had me in tears in places but a thoroughly enjoyab [...]


    22. Review originally posted to my blog:pagetostagereviews/201I love Carole Matthew's delightful novels; filled with heart-warming characters and a sweet story her books are the perfect escapism from the woes of everyday life. So whenever a new one gets released I get my hands on it as soon as possible, ready to lose myself for a few hours in someone else's world. Despite its adorable flowery cover there is a much more serious story at the hard of her latest novel, A Place to Call Home, however. It' [...]


    23. Ayesha is a young mother, married to a violent monster of a man who controls her every move. After one vicious assault that her young daughter Sabina witnesses, she decides that she has had enough and plans her escape. After witnessing the horror attack on her mother, Sabina regressed so much that she stopped speaking. A year has gone by and still Sabina hasn’t spoken, now even more determined to get away, Ayesha gives her husband sleeping pills and in the middle of the night makes her bid for [...]


    24. In the dead of night, Ayesha takes her daughter, Sabrina and slips quietly from her home, leaving behind a life full of pain. Boarding a coach to London, all Ayesha wants us a fresh start. Hayden, a former popstar, has kept himself hidden away for years. He only opened up his home to two people, Crystal and Joy, an ill tempered retiree with a soft spot for waifs and strays. When Crystal asks Hayden if Ayesha and Sabina can stay with them, he reluctantly agrees and, as different as they may be, t [...]


    25. I love Carole Matthews but this one just didn't fit with me. I love how she found love but having her husband hunt her down and harm her child that's was not cool. I understand that she had to run away but couldn't they just leave it at that. Just my opinion I guess


    26. I have never been disappointed by a Carole Matthews book and I am delighted to say that this one ticks all the boxes too.Carole writes with refreshing honesty about all sorts of subjects, love but also familial relationships and all array of matter surrounding love and relationships. This book starts off a little darker than previous novels with Ayesha sneaking her small daughter out of the house she shares with her husband and parents in law; for Ayesha her marriage, arranged by her loving pare [...]
