Lesley Pearse's 25 in 25 Blog Tour

To celebrate the release of global bestseller Lesley Pearse's 25 novel, The Woman In The Wood, each day for 25 days a different blog will reveal a fact about Lesley and her books. You can catch up and follow along using the hashtag #LoveLesley.
It's now day three of the tour and my fact is about Lesley's second novel: Charity.

Charity:  I wrote about the agony of giving up a baby for adoption because I’d been through it. I still think about my son fifty three years later.

The Woman in the Wood  

You can preorder The Woman in the Wood now. It's available from June 29th!

Maisy and Duncan have always had each other. Until the day they didn't.

One night in 1960, fifteen-year-old twins Maisy and Duncan Mitcham awake to find their father pulling their screaming mother from the house. She is to be committed to an insane asylum. It is, so their father insists, for her own good.

It's not long before they, too, are removed from their London home and sent to Nightingales - a large house deep in the New Forest countryside - to be watched over by their cold-hearted grandmother, Mrs Mitcham. Though they feel abandoned and unloved, at least here they have something they never had before - freedom.

The twins are left to their own devices, to explore, find new friends and first romances. That is until the day that Duncan doesn't come back for dinner. Nor does he return the next day. Or the one after that.

When the bodies of other young boys are discovered in the surrounding area the police appear to give up hope of finding Duncan alive. With Mrs Mitcham showing little interest in her grandson's disappearance, it is up to Maisy to discover the truth. And she knows just where to start. The woman who lives alone in the wood about whom so many rumours abound. A woman named Grace Deville.
