Welcome to The Estate - where even the darkest times have their lighter moments...
Scars. Sometimes they’re visible. Sometimes they’re hidden deep within.
After years of living as a single parent, all Donna Adams longs for is someone to make her smile, to share hopes and dreams with, to keep her warm at night. But when that certain someone gives her the attention she craves, true love doesn’t always follow the right path.
Home from the army, Lewis is a changed man. Angry and consumed by grief, troubled by nightmares and flashbacks, his mind is worse now than ever. Shutting out what he’s seen isn’t easy, but he risks losing everything he’s come back to if he doesn’t, including his sanity.
Megan Cooper hides her scars for fear of being rejected. Mary Marshall can’t always remember how she got hers.
If the past could be erased to make a better future, we’d all want that, wouldn’t we? But life is never that easy for the residents of The Mitchell Estate…
WRITTEN IN THE SCARS is the fourth book in The Estate Series but each one can be read as a standalone novel.
Wow. Firstly what a year it has been for Mel Sherratt. Who is also now writing contemporary fiction under the name of Marcie Steele.
I can't believe we are now at book 4 in the Estate Series. A series I have enjoyed reading. And I felt like I was visiting somewhere I actually knew when I dived into this book.
Set on the Mitchell Estate, It is easy to relate to. Most big area's have an estate of some description and the Mitchell Estate is no different from those, which is what helps the feel of the book, it is what helps make the book real.
This book is mainly based around Donna, a resident that we can all relate to as a person. Hard working, caring for a family and her elderly mother. Wanting just that bit of something special.
Also Lewis, another resident who is suffering after returning back to the estate from the Army. Life never seems dull on the Estate.
We also see Josie, the Michelle Estate housing officer, although she's not in this book as much as previous books.
As with other reviews i'm struggling with this one, not to give too much away. But anyone who has read the previous 3 books, will enjoy this addition. It seemed like a really easy read, no complicated plots to follow, but the book grabs you in the way you want to carry on read to see where the story is going.
