Review:

There are some elements in good saga writing that never fail, and Lesley Pearse has the full measure of them in Trust Me. She is particularly good on the theme of the orphanage survivor who makes her way in a hostile world: familiar, perhaps, but rarely treated with the colour and exuberance found here. Dulcie Taylor and her sister May, who have spent their lives having their trust betrayed by those who claim they will look after them, begin a new life in a new country. Australia soon turns out to be a grim illusion, however, until Dulcie meets Ross, who has also known what it is to be an orphanage survivor. With a narrative that has the epic qualities of the country it is set in, Pearse is able to deal with the growth of trust and love between the characters in a wholly convincing fashion, with Dulcie a memorably drawn heroine. --Barry Forshaw

Review:

Trust Me is a powerful historical novel based on a real life tragedy. For one girl betrayal goes hand in hand with trust . . .

This is just one of many captivating novels from the international NO.1 BESTSELLING author Lesley Pearse.
