"22nd book by Lesley Pearse…"
Survivor is another great book by Lesley Pearse. Over all Lesley Pearse's has had published a staggering 22 novels including Survivor.. I have read some of Lesley Pearse's books before which lead me to read Survivor. with Lesley's brilliant imagination she gives us readers such great enjoyment reading any novel she writes. I am looking forward to the next novel that Lesley will publish. For any reader out there who has not read a book by Lesley Pearse I strongly recommend reading any of her books from the 22 books she has published. If any one can not think of what to buy someone for a gift a Lesley Pearse book would be treasured by someone. Survivor is heart-stopping set in 1938 a small town Russell in New Zealand. Young Mariette Carrera lives with her mother Belle, father Etienne and her two brothers and her aunt Mog. When Belle her mother was young she witnessed some thing really horrible and was forced into a life that was unacceptable for a young girl of her age. Belle keeps her past her hidden secret from her young daughter Mari. Her father Etienne has the love for the sea and boats which Mari adores her father and is following in her father's foot steps with loving the sea and boats. Aunt Mog is fabulously very cleaver at dressmaking which Mari inherits dressmaking skills from her aunt. Mari can be naughty, disobeying, devious, rebellious and very opinionated. Mari falls in love with Sam who has come to Russell to minor repairs on cargo ships. Sam is very Vile to Mari and soon the town of Russell are talking about young Mari. Mari parents think it may be best if she leaves Russell. Mari set on board a ship and leaves Russell to stay with her God parents in London just as the news is spreading that there could be war in London. Readers should be embracing themselves as there is more to Survivor than you can ever expect. I hope that many readers will enjoy reading Survivor as much as I have.
