Website


Lesley Pearse is one of the UK's best-loved novelists with fans across the globe and sales of over 2 million copies of her books to date.

“You can't do anything about the past, it's done and can't be mended. But the future is different, if you just think what you really want and reach out and take it.”
Lesley Pearse, Trust Me

“Now, tomorrow you got to put on a happy face, not for me, nor May, or anyone else, just for yourself. 'Cause that's a magic trick I learned a long time ago, if you look like you're happy, you soon get to be.”
Lesley Pearse, Trust Me

“Hate was a far easier emotion to deal with sometimes. It burned fiercely and eventually died. Love stayed.”
Lesley Pearse, Rosie
