GoodReads Synopsis:



Alex, a single mother-of-two, is determined to make a fresh start for her and her children. In an effort to escape her troubled past, she seeks refuge in a rural community. Pine Ridge is idyllic; the surrounding forests are beautiful and the locals welcoming. Mostly.

But Alex finds that she may have disturbed barely hidden secrets in her new home. As a chain of bizarre events is set off, events eerily familiar to those who have lived there for years, Alex realizes that she and her family might be in greater danger than ever before. And that the only way to protect them all is to confront the shadows lurking in Pine Ridge.

About The Author:

Anna Downes was born in Sheffield, UK, but now lives just north of Sydney, Australia. She worked as an actress before turning to writing and appeared in television dramas such as Eastenders, Casualty, Holby City, and Dalziel and Pascoe.

Her writing has been shortlisted for the Sydney Writers Room Short Story Prize and longlisted for the Margaret River Short Story Competition.

The Safe Place was inspired by Anna’s experiences working as a housekeeper on a remote French estate.
