Book Description

July 25 2006
Will Rosie ever escape from her brutal brothers? As a child Rosie Parker spent the war years battling her brutish half-brothers Seth and Norman on the farm under the less-than-watchful eye of her father Cole. But when housekeeper Heather Farley arrives, Rosie finds a mother - and a friend - to look after her. Several years later, Thomas Farley comes to find his sister. Rosie can only tell him that she disappeared in mysterious circumstances, abandoning her small son Alan. Determined to get young Alan and Rosie out of the clutches of Cole and his sons, Thomas helps unearth a terrible truth about the family. This is a truth that forces Rosie away from the farm and out into a cruel world where she must somehow come to terms with her shocking past. Is it possible that the man who brought ruin on her family might also bring happiness to Rosie?

I was given this book by a friend to read. I do not usually read this type of book, but I decided to give it a go. I started it and from the first few pages I could not put it down. It is a fantastic read and now I am looking for more of Lesley Pearse books to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended April 2 2007
By S. Iorio - Published on
This book grabs you from the 1st paragraph and keeps your attention with every page. Its the story of a young girl growing up in poverty and cruelty through the 1940's and 50's who faces seemingly insurmountable challenges but never gives up. Very well written. A must read!

The characters are well rounded and the description of them is good. I found this book of her"s more slow-moving than usual.
