Another Pearse Classic
on 2 April 2003
This is the best book I have ever read. Never before have I been so immersed in a story. From start to finish it felt like I was there with the characters and it is easy to believe this story is based on real life rather than fiction.
The plot follows the life of Rosie Parker, a young girl growing up with her father and two half-brothers. Her life is full of tradegy and heartache and through this the reader sees Rosie grow from a small innocent girl to a beautiful, caring woman - made stronger by the tramua she experiences.
All the characters are all well developed but especially Rosie and after finishing this novel you can't help but feel like you know her personally. All of Lesley Pearse's books are wonderful, but this has that something extra making it a must read and arguably the best she has wrote.
