    By Kris Anderson, The Avid Reader
    A Place to Call Home by Tania Crosse is a sequel to Nobody’s Girl. Clarissa “Clarrie” Stratfield-Whyte is married to Wigmore and runs Robin Hill House. It is the summer of 1939 in Kent and war with Germany is inevitable. Clarrie has decided that they will take in evacuees from London and it will help fill the hole in their life since she is unable to have children. Meg Chandler (the family took her in after her family died) insists on working and is assigned the duties of a parlor maid. However, she prefers animals and farming side of the estate. Meg has fallen in love with Ralph Hillier, the head gardener, but war is going to separate the two lovebirds. The evacuees arrive, war is officially declared and Nathaniel Green escapes. Many changes are coming to the estate and everyone will need to band together to survive. A Place to Call Home can be a standalone book. What occurred in Nobody’s Girl is completely rehashed in A Place to Call Home. The pace is slow in the first half of the book, but it does pick up slightly during the second half. I found the story to be well-written, but a little too long (and predictable). I did not feel the author had to completely retell Nobody’s Girl. I found the story to be realistic in capturing the events of the country (rationing, war, growing vegetables, evacuees, the worry, men joining the war). I found the characters to be well-developed, and I enjoyed the beautiful setting of Kent. The story has love, heartache, hope, grief, worry, and so much more. I appreciated that the author wrapped up all the storylines and provided a good ending. I am giving A Place to Call Home 4 out of 5 stars.
