I love Lesley Pearse’s books and they make a great holiday read because they really draw you in and get you totally absorbed in the storyline. She has fantastic characterisation and Verity and Ruby are great to follow in the latest book. It’s a real page turner – willing you to read just one more chapter!
They meet as teenagers in London, although they have totally different lives and backgrounds they become firm friends. The book takes you through the war years and explores friendships and romance amongst hardships and reversal of fortune. You can really feel yourself in amongst the characters in the storyline with the sights and scents of the time all around you. I really can’t stress how much I love these books.
You will never fail to have a fantastic read with one of Lesley’s books and I always eagerly await the latest release.
With many thanks to the publisher a
