Whether crime as in 'Till We Meet Again', historical adventure like 'Never Look Back', or the passionately emotive 'Trust Me', based on the true-life scandal of British child migrants sent to Australia in the post war period, she engages the reader completely. I only wish we would have had more of this much earlier on in the book instead of what I would term the lull that did occur. The impact of constant change and uncertainty in Lesley’s early years is reflected in the recurring themes in her books: how emotional damage inflicted on children impacts the rest of their lives. I expected this book to be historical fiction, something I don't usually enjoy, but this book was actually set at the end of 1990s/early 2000s so make your own minds up as to if that's historical fiction (but to me it isn't).

Published by Penguin’s Michael Joseph on 6th July 2023, Betrayal is available for purchase through the links here. Marianne goes on to be a role model/mother figure for Eve always offering good advice and being there for her when she needs it. Moves back to her house while he has to stay away, but sometimes spends his drunken nights in the shed having a nap. The impact of constant change and uncertainty in Lesley's early years is reflected in one of the recurring themes in her books: what happens to those who are emotionally damaged as children.

He caught hold of her shoulders, head-butted her, punched her in the stomach so she fell to the floor and then kicked her again and again. Time passed and it felt as if the chapters were just detailing the normal/usual events in their lives and how they were adapting to their new situation as well as detailing building progress with the new house. Lesley now lives in Torquay, Devon where she loves to spend time walking on the beach with her grandchildren.

After one particularly bad beating, and knowing that he is starting to do the same to her son, Olly, Eve plucks up the courage to leave, taking Olly and his sister, Tabby, with her. I really enjoyed the story of Eve, her character is strong but sometimes too strong and she is encouraged to relax and give a little. Biography: International bestselling author Lesley Pearse has lived a life as rich with incidents, setbacks and joys as any found in her novels. I felt so sorry for Eve and her children but I loved how her character evolved as the story progressed and she started to get more confident in building a new life for herself.Since then, Lesley has become an internationally bestselling author, with over 10 million copies of her books sold worldwide. Betrayal is one of Lesley Pearse's more contemporary books, set in the late 1990s/early 2000s and I didn't expect to like it quite as much as her historical ones but I absolutely loved it. Eve decides to permanently move her family to Sidmouth, to finally start over and to work on the interior decorating career she has always wanted. But then here’s the contrasting thing…the book highlighted some really difficult subjects including marital abuse, grooming and suicide, to name but a few, and didn’t shy away from them, in fact it is a brutal start to the book…. The reader is forced to sit up and start forming their own judgements and it was fascinating to see how things were unfolding.
