Mariette is the restless teenage daughter of 'Belle' the main character in the first book of the trilogy. Belle went on to have further adventures in WW1 in 'The Promise' ..

It is now the mid 1930s and young Mariette leaves New Zealand for England and has her own challenges to overcome during WW2 which involves suriving the Blitz in London and travelling in the dead of night to France on secret missions. Luke her mother, Mariette is a 'Survivor'

Of course there is heroism, love, romance and loss, as one would expect from any Lesley Pearse book

The three books can be read stand alone, but each one is an exciting journey into recent history and thoroughly enjoyable.

Belle and her family will be missed..

I have not read a book by Lesley Pearse in a long time but the books of hers I have read I enjoyed. I was sent a copy of Survivor to read and I was torn part of me couldn’t wait to start it and delve back into this authors writing world again the other half of me was hesitant as I had heard that this book was a follow on to Belle and The Promise both of which I hadn’t read so I was unsure if I would be able to follow the storyline.
The book gets off to a quick start and I was hooked by the end of the first chapter. Mariette was quite a character, although not one I warmed to or could relate to at all, she was still a marvellous character her personality was too big for the small village she lived in and so before she could bring shame on the family her parents sent her away to England.
During Mariette’s time in England the blitz began and we see a change in Mariette but one thing that doesn’t change is her attraction to men. Unfortunately I found that half way through the book my attention began to waver, I felt like the storyline was being drawn out too long and nothing new seemed to be happening, but I was hesitant to give up as the beginning was so good and I hate to leave a book half way. I am glad I carried on reading as the book did pick up again towards the end.
Although I hadn’t read Belle and The Promise I didn’t feel like that mattered in this book I would never had known that this was a follow on if I hadn’t already been told as I never felt as though I was missing anything so this can easily be read as a stand alone book, although I would love to go back and read the previous books.
This is a great romance with action and tragedy weaved in. Although not a favourite of mine by Lesley Pearse, I enjoyed this book although I do think it could have been a lot shorter which may have helped to keep my attention the whole way through.

Survivor is Lesley pearce's latest offering it is the 3rd book in the belle series, but could be read as a stand alone as it does give you some background from her 2 previous books. I have read all of Lesley pearce's book so was really looking forward to her latest release and I was not disappointed Survivor begins in New Zealand and the story carries through to war torn London and France. Survivor is centered around mariette who at the beginning of survivor is self centered, manipulative and not very likeable. As the story progresses and Mariette moves to London tragedy hits her personally, through heartache and bereavement a new mariette emerges, one who is willing to risk her life saving others in war torn France. Lesley Pearce has written another great saga one which will keep you turning the pages, her research is exceptional and you can imagine how harsh life was during the blitz. Survivor has it all love, passion, hardship and intrigue. Mariettes turn around in character is believable, as are the difficulties she has to overcome to become a better person. I would thoroughly recommend this book to others.

Survivor continues the story told in Belle (2011) and The Promise (2012), but this is Mariette's story and it really doesn't matter if you've read the others first, this story stands perfectly well on it's own.

1938 in Russell, a small town in New Zealand and Mariette, daughter of Belle and Etienne is strong-willed, a little bit defiant and bored. There is no doubt that if she remains at home for much longer she is going to find herself in all kinds of trouble. The neighbours are already talking about her and her parents decide that London is the best place for their wilful daughter. Mariette sets out on the long journey to Europe, she's going to stay with her parent's friends Noah and Lisette and she can't wait to get away from the isolated town of Russell. Mariette's adventures start before her feet touch English soil - she's a beautiful young woman travelling alone and it is not long before she catches the eye of the Errol Flynn lookalike steward on board. Mariette has been badly hurt in love before and this time she is determined that she will have the upper hand, sadly though it appears that all men really are only after one thing.

In London Mariette throws herself into her new life of glamour and parties, she adores earning her own money and having some independence.

Mariette's life is shattered on the night of her twenty-first birthday. Hitler's bombs do not stop for birthdays and Mariette finds herself alone in a London that no longer appears to glitter with anything except tears. As the war rages Mariette discovers an inner strength that she certainly didn't realise was there. Her wilfulness and sense of adventure serve her well and she grows from a head-strong immature girl into a brave and resilient young woman.
