I am delighted to be a stop on this very special blog tour to celebrate the 25th book of Lesley Pearse. The Woman in the Wood is published on 29th June 2017 by Michael Joseph. My thanks to Darran at ed public relations for having me.
Lesley Pearse is a global bestselling author, having sold more than 10 million books to date. I have read some and they are well written, crossing many genres and boundaries. Firstly I will tell you about The Woman in the Wood and then I have a Factoid for you from one of Lesley's previous books.
1960: Maisy and Duncan Mitcham are woken one night to find their mother is being committed to an insane asylum. Soon after, their father packs them off to ‘Nightingales’, their grandmother’s country house in the New Forest. Cold and distant, she leaves them to their own devices to explore; a freedom they have never experienced before and which they love. That is, until the day Duncan doesn’t come home from the woods.
When the bodies of other young boys are discovered in the surrounding area the police appear to give up hope of finding Duncan alive and with Grandmother Mitcham showing little concern, it falls to Maisy to discover the truth. And she knows just where to start. The woman who lives alone in the woods. A woman called Grace Deville.
So that sounds really exciting, I can't wait to read it. Perhaps you are a fan of Lesley Pearse, I would love to hear which is your favourite of hers. I have been given Lesley's 13th book to give you a fact about. Secrets was first published in 2004...
It's 1930, and Secrets tells the tale of one girl caught in a family mystery, a struggle against cruelty, and a quest for love . . .
