Blog Tour: #25in25 25 Facts to Celebrate the Release of Lesley Pearse's 25th Novel The Woman in the Wood

Welcome to the Woman in The Wood Secret Facts Blog Tour. We're all sharing facts from Lesley to celebrate the publication of her latest novel The Woman in the Wood, released in the UK on 29th June.

Here's what it's all about:

Fifteen-year-old twins Maisy and Duncan Mitcham have always had each other. Until the fateful day in the wood . . .
One night in 1960, the twins awake to find their father pulling their screaming mother from the house. She is to be committed to an asylum. It is, so their father insists, for her own good.
It's not long before they, too, are removed from their London home and sent to Nightingales - a large house deep in the New Forest countryside - to be watched over by their cold-hearted grandmother, Mrs Mitcham. Though they feel abandoned and unloved, at least here they have something they never had before - freedom.
The twins are left to their own devices, to explore, find new friends and first romances. That is until the day that Duncan doesn't come back for dinner. Nor does he return the next day. Or the one after that.
When the bodies of other young boys are discovered in the surrounding area the police appear to give up hope of finding Duncan alive. With Mrs Mitcham showing little interest in her grandson's disappearance, it is up to Maisy to discover the truth. And she knows just where to start. The woman who lives alone in the wood about whom so many rumours abound. A woman named Grace Deville.

My fact is about Lesley’s second novel, Tara, which was first published in 1994:

Tara: It was said by a journalist that my hero Harry Collins was the best male character since Rhett Butler.


Thanks for that fun fact Lesley and congratulations on your new novel!
