A Richard and Judy Book Club Pick 2017
Shortlisted for the Costa Novel AwardA top-ten bestseller, This Must Be The Place by Maggie O'Farrell crosses time zones and continents to reveal an extraordinary portrait of a marriage.
A reclusive ex-film star living in the wilds of Ireland, Claudette Wells is a woman whose first instinct, when a stranger approaches her home, is to reach for her shotgun. Why is she so fiercely protective of her family, and what made her walk out of her cinematic career when she had the whole world at her feet?
Her husband Daniel, reeling from a discovery about a woman he last saw twenty years ago, is about to make an exit of his own. It is a journey that will send him off-course, far away from the life he and Claudette have made together. Will their love for one another be enough to bring Daniel back home?
"A complex, riveting novel of love and hope that grips at the heart." (The Sunday Times)

wonderful story, really well read
I've just started in on unabridged books, rather than dramatized performances. This is a superb audiobook. Great to have both male and female voices, especially given that the book is constructed with chapters from the points of view of many different characters. Maggie O'Farrell had been really ambitious with This Must Be the Place, but she's pulled it off and this audiobook treatment does it justice.
