Lesley Pearse has captured the inner soul of these Characters, so beautifully I wanted to look them up on Facebook - she made Dulcie & May Taylor and Ross Rawlings come to life and feel so real and true. The story begins with two beautiful little girls and demonstrates the power of love against heartbreak where damaged people struggle in our everyday world unbeknownst to us all. This beautifully told time capsule depicts many lives and places allowing you to feel,see, smell and experience these characters lives and experiences in front of you. The narrator voicing this story is so perfectly suited and very talented (a credit to her) as you listen she realistically brings the characters - male, female, English from all walks of life and a very on point Australian 1950's distinct drawl that effortlessly brings the 2D words to a rich and well rounded full dynamic. This book is more than a story or tale to me, it is a life story that will stay with me always. I have my own "Ross" in my life , I will endeavour to be his voice and bring to justice the monsters who took away his innocence and try to find my voice on his and others behalf. I only hope it is as strong and as courageous Dulcie's. This book is and will always be a treasured keepsake to me, Thank you Lesley.
