Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Betty Wellows is running for her life....

Young Betty dreams of settling down to an ordinary life in Hallsands with her fisherman husband. But when he returns broken and haunted from the Great War, she finds herself persecuted by his distraught mother - and yearns to escape. 

It is only when a storm devastates the village that Betty sees her chance. Fleeing to Bristol and changing her name to Mabel Brook, she seeks a new life - only to discover destiny has other plans. 

Penniless and alone, Mabel suffers a brutal attack before being rescued by a psychic named Nora Nightingale. She gets her first taste of those who receive messages from the dead and realises she may have this power herself. 

But Mabel fears her gift may be a terrible curse as it becomes ever harder to hide from the truth about who she once was - and the tragic life she left behind. 

Soon Mabel receives her own message and is forced back to the very place she has escaped. A place of heartbreak and perhaps even murder - but to secure her future Mabel must confront her past one last time. 

Heart-pounding, exhilarating and ever suspenseful, Lesley Pearse's You'll Never See Me Again is a tale of one woman's fight to find her destiny.

Disappointing story

I was really looking forward to this book, but was left feeling disappointed with the story line. Not one of Lesley Pearse’s best books, hope the next one is better.

Disappointing

Usually love Lesley Pearse but found this so disappointing, so predictable & struggled to make it to the end. Also found the narrators voice really dreary & very one tone. Wished I’d saved my credit for something more engaging. ☹️

Don't bother

I bought this as an impulse purchase so I didn't lose an Audible credit. Terrible decision, if you like a complex plot and likeable characters this is not for you.

Charming story, that steps you back in time

Really enjoyable and innocent story. Set back in war time when so much was different for women and their rights. A love story, sandwiched with interesting detours!
