This book was one of the many Lesley Pearse books I got for Christmas. Out of alll of them that I have now read, this is by far the best.
The story is so harrowing and yet so beautiful. A young girl who has had a harrowing upbringing and has been seperated from the brothers and sisters she loves more than anything and then has to go through terrible ordeals to find someone who will love and take care of her properly, a job, not to mention find her brothers and sisters once more. This is just a beautiful story which at its most harrowing and its most beautiful would make anyone cry. I defy anyone not to love it.

having read this book 6 years ago i was well and truly a lesley pearse fan from the word go!now i have read them all but charity still remains the fave as it was the first intro into a fabulous writers work!!it was such fun to read about london in the 50 and 60's having come from somewhere so distant to all that! like all her books you are immedietley transported to the characters world. if i wasnt reading this book i was thinking about it. i became sleep deprived as i could not put it down til the early hours of the morning. after moving to london a few years later it was so good to finally see all these places mentioned in the book(as well as her others!)it was such a fun aspect of being in the vibrant city as i also read 5 of her other books during my few years there and lived the story a lot more vivadly. highly recommend all her books and guarantee a truly remarkable read!!!you wont be able to stop at charity!!!

I am a Lesley Pearse avid reader i have all the books released so far and not 1 have i been dissapointed in. With every book you can not put it down they are so easy reading and you become the character in the book. Never look back has to be one of my favorites and i would definitly recommend it to any one. Once you have read 1 of her books you will want them all and i for 1 can't wait for the next.

This is the third 'Lesley Pearse' book I have read, and it is very good. I found myself keen to read the book until the early hours to find out what happened in the end. She had to endure so many bad things happening to her. I couldn't quite work out how her brother and sister could treat her the way they did though, not after everything she had done to try to be reunited with them. I was a bit disappointed in places though as some of the characters seemed to fade out a bit. I couldn't understand why Charity was treated badly by her Uncle Stephen either, the whole family history regarding her mother and Uncle seemed to be left in limbo. I half expected Charity to have a different father. Also, there was no further mention of Dorothy after her brothers death, and I felt she was partly responsible. So overall, there seemed to be a few loose ends that needed tying up in the end. Nevertheless, the book was enjoyable and I would recommend it.

i recently read this book as a recommendation from my mum. the book was brilliant all of the way through - once i had got into it i was absorbed and could not put it down! i was even finishing it using only the light of my phone one night. i felt sad to have to finish the book, it was the first book by Lesley Pearse that i read and i hope that all of the others are as good!

As I was finishing Camellia I just had to get the next book by Lesley Pearse and I though that Charity looked the best one to follow on with. I loved it. It was so tragic yet so fantastic to read. I really felt I was part of Charity's life experiencing both good and bad things and not least all her amazing relationships and deep love for the people she cared about.

"Charity" was the first Lesley Pearse novel I read, and I became hooked immediately. I was fascinated by the descriptions of the unmarried mother's home and her experiences... The cover looks a bit cheesy, but the novel definitely isn't. I recommend it to anyone who likes a good story.

This was the first of Pearse's novels I read. I found it extremely enjoyable and exciting! I have recommended it to all who reads. Charity's life is a pity, but her own dtermination and a little help from the few good people she meets along the way, brings her hapiness and contentment. However, she has her fair share of 'baddies' and distress throughout. Sometimes got a bit slow, but Pearse made up for that with an event or complicatin that would keep you hooked. Well worth reading and if you like this, then you will love Martina Cole. Dangerous Lady is my personal favourite, can't be beaten.
