Lesley Pearse is a global No.1 bestseller with fans across the world and sales of over 10 million copies of her books to date. A true storyteller and master of the gripping storyline, Lesley introduces us to characters that are impossible not to care about or forget. There is no formula to her books or easily defined genre and, whether historical drama like the No.1 bestseller, Belle or the emotionally powerful Trust Me based on the true-life scandal of British child migrants sent to Australia in the post-war period, she engages the reader completely. The author of 23 incredible novels, Without a Trace was a Sunday Times Top 5 bestseller.

About Without a Trace: It’s Coronation Day, 1953 in the Somerset village of Sawbridge, and Molly Heywood’s life is turned upside down when her friend, Cassie, fails to turn up to the village Coronation Day party. Setting out in the rain, nothing can prepare Molly for the shocking sight she is about to behold: Cassie has been murdered, and her six year old daughter Petal has disappeared without a trace. Determined to find the truth behind her friend’s death and the whereabouts of Cassie’s 6 year old daughter, Petal who has disappeared without a trace, Molly heads to London in search of Cassie’s past and is happy for the first time in her life but clues about Petal’s whereabouts are in short supply. Why would someone want to kill Cassie?  Why would they abduct her daughter, and why has no one seen her? Retracing Cassie’s past, Molly is led from the bombed out poverty of the East End to the rural beauty of Rye in Sussex. But will she discover the truth in time, and will she find Petal before the little girl disappears forever?
