You Belong Here

Author: Laurie Steed

Publisher: Margaret River Press

Published: March 2018

Jen and Steven meet at sixteen, marry at eighteen, and start a shared life. Initially their three children help glue a shaky relationship together but when the marriage finally disintegrates the siblings must face their adult lives in the shadow of family fracture. Laurie Steed’s wit, honesty and compassion shine through in this original, well-crafted first novel. Set mainly in Perth, this is a book about brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, trust, connection, disconnection, place, friendship, resilience,  and hope. It is funny, sad, sensual and deeply real.
