Book giveaway: Without a Trace by Lesley Pearse

Without a Trace is the heart-wrenching new novel by best-selling author Lesley Pearse.

On Coronation Day in 1953, Molly Heyward slips away from the celebrations and makes a shocking discovery. Her friend Cassie is dead and Cassie's six-year old daughter Petal has vanished without a trace. The only clue is a letter from London, where Cassie once lived. 

Now Molly must go on a perilous journey to find Petal and uncover the past her friend has kept so well hidden.
