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?

Great book!

I read this book some years ago and as with all Lesley Pearse books I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I also enjoyed listening to the book - but it took a long time to get used to the readers voice. It just seemed off to have such a gruff / throaty voice for a book about a little / very young girl. That said the reader did a great job!

Brilliant story

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.
