Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Rosie by Lesley Pearse, read by Gabrielle Glaister. 

Her brutal, violent family will be the death of her....

Without a mother, Rosie is at the mercy of her father and thuggish brothers. Then one day a friend comes to the farm in the form of cockney housekeeper Heather Farley. 

But soon enough Heather vanishes, abandoning Rosie to her fate. Only when Thomas Farley comes to find his sister several years later does Rosie learn the terrible truth about Heather - and her family. 

Running away from home, she finds herself pursued by the man who brought ruin on her family. Is he out to get her, too? Or could he have some other reason for chasing her?

What a journey, exciting, fearful and a happy ending

Really excellent narrator. A story line you would never dream up. Obviously a lot of research into attitudes and institutions. I enjoyed this rather scary story that could well have been true. Added to my education that’s for sure. A no frills descriptive story that was colourful and painted quite clearly. The world needs more Rosies.

Loved this touching story

This is a beautiful love story, a triumph telling about of rising from adversity.
Loved the narration, loved the characters even the evil ones. I felt I was there.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good story and historical romance/ mysteries. I love Lesley Pearce.

Brilliant story and narration was excellent too.
I really tried not to finish it too quick as I was enjoying it so much, but I just couldn’t stop listening.
