A House For Alice

Diana Evans

Published: 6th April 2023 After fifty years in London, Alice wants to live out her days in the land of her birth. Her three children are divided on whether she stays or goes. 'Alice was thinking about her own next world and her own castle, which was not in Kingsbury or in Kilburn. It was far away from here, out in the fields near the edge of Benin City, a little house, long in the dreaming, which her relatives had been building for her for when it was time to go home...' In the wake of their father's death, the imagined stability of the family begins to buckle. Meanwhile youngest daughter Melissa is forging a new life but has never let go of a love she lost. Michael too remains haunted by the failed perfection of their past, even within the sturdy walls of his marriage to the sparkling Nicole. As Alice's final decision draws closer, all that is hidden between Melissa and her sisters, Michael and Nicole, rises to the surface... Publisher: Penguin ISBN: 9781784744267

This brilliant new novel from Diana Evans is set against the backdrop of Grenfell and is a deeply touching mediation on how we find the right place to call home.
