READ THE SPELLBINDING MEMOIR NOW

One of the worlds bestselling storytellers, Lesley Pearse writes brilliantly about survivors. Why? Because she is one herself . . .

Born during the Second World War, Lesleys innocence came to an abrupt end when a neighbour found her, aged 3, coatless in the snow. The mother shed been unable to wake had been dead for days. Sent to an orphanage, Lesley soon learned adults couldnt always be trusted.

As a teenager in the swinging sixties, she took herself to London. Here, the second great tragedy of her life occurred. Falling pregnant, she was sent to a mother and baby home, and watched helplessly as her newborn was taken from her.

But like so many of her generation, Lesley had to carry on. She was, after all, a true survivor. Marriage and children followed and all the while she nurtured a dream: to be a writer. Yet it wasnt until at the age of 48 that her stories of women struggling in a difficult world found a publisher, and the bestseller lists beckoned.

As heartbreaking as it is heartwarming, Lesleys story really is A Long and Winding Road with surprises and uplifting hope around every corner . . .
