I just loved everything about the book. The plot was very well thought out and the storyline flowed well.
I just couldn't put the book down once I started. I just had to read it to the end.
Lovely story and great ending.
Not enjoyed a good read like this in a long time.

The story begins in 1935 when Ruby and Verity are young girls in their teens and meet on Hampstead Heath. Despite being from totally different backgrounds the girls become friends for life, or at least until events cause one of them to utter the words “You’re dead to me.”
This is a typical Lesley Pearse book as she weaves the story and the characters through the course of their lives taking us along on an emotional roller-coaster. With true friendship overcoming adversity and goodness overcoming evil the characters are all well thought out, it has a great story line and even a few twists that I didn’t see coming.
This is the first narration I have listened to by Eve Webster, it was good and there nothing wrong with it but I just didn’t quite enjoy this Lesley Pearce as much as some of her other books that I have read or listened to, perhaps due to a mixture of the story and the narration. In the last couple of weeks I have listened to “Georgia” and “Forgive Me,” both narrated by Emma Powell and very hard acts to follow. With so many fabulous books under her belt they all can’t be 10 out of 10. I would certainly rate this 8 or 9 out of 10. Having said that, would I recommend it, yes of course, it didn’t blow my mind but was very, very enjoyable, well worth my monthly credit and I eagerly look forward to her next book.

As usual Lesley Pearce's book was sensational! Well rounded characters and easy to follow! Beautifully read! Enjoyed the expression in the narrators voice! Just when I was about to give up on audiobooks!
I enjoyed this book. There are interesting aspects of war work I had not heard about before. Accurate insight into human behaviour.
Just an all-around good story beautifully narrated.
