Remember Me - Lesley Pearse ... struggle over adversity. In 1786 a fisherman's daughter from Cornwall called Mary Broad was sentenced to be hung for theft. But her sentence was commuted, and she was transported to Australia, one of the first convicts to arrive there. How Mary escaped the harsh existence of the colony and found true love, and how she was captured and taken back to London in chains, only to be released after a trial where she was defended by no less than James Boswell, is one of the most gripping and moving stories of human endeavour (based on an amazing true story) you will ever read.

It's been a while since I read a Lesley Pearse book. A while back, I'd read so many that I was getting a bit bored but having downloaded a fair bit of chick lit to read on my recent holiday, I wanted something to balance my reading list out. Onto my Kindle went this particular book when I noticed that it was going fairly cheap on Amazon. Many of Lesley Pearse's books are set in the past and this is no exception. The story begins in the 18th century, when Mary Broad, a young girl from Cornwall, is convicted of highway robbery and sentenced to hanging. Expected to be hung, Mary is surprised when instead, she's sentenced to transportation. After spending time on ... Read the complete review

'Remember Me' is a novel by Lesley Pearse which I decided to get from my library after reading a positive review from another Dooyoo member (dippykitty) and realising it sounded like my kind of novel. This is my first Lesley Pearse novel and I hadn't read around the setting of the book much, but thanks to that review I had high expectations from this book and honestly, I wasn't disappointed! ==---Plot---== It's 1786. Avoiding a hanging when she is caught stealing a silk hat, Cornish-born Mary Broad is instead sentenced to transportation. She is bound for a ship to Australia with fellow convicts and Marine troops. However, her journey conditions on ... Read the complete review

This is the first Lesley Pearse novel I have read. I was recommended it by my mum and to be honest, I didn't think it looked particularly thrilling! I know I shouldn't have... but I judged it by it's cover! This copy has a different front cover, a purple background with the sea in the distance, and a young girl staring wistfully into the distance. I gave it a go based on the blurb on the back, as it told me about Mary Broad, who was sentenced to hang for highway robbery. I'm a fan of historical fiction, but having been very busy with work for a while, I wanted something that wasn't particularly taxing on the brain. The blurb immediately caught my interest as ...

?Remember me? was a book I received as a gift from Book Club Associates late last year. It is written by Lesley Pearse and was released properly early this year on January 29th 2004. I haven?t really read any of Lesley Pearse?s books but she has got quite a few bestsellers under her belt including ?Trust Me?, ?Never Look Back? and ?Father Unknown?. Obviously I don?t know what those books are like having not read them but if they are anything similar to this one they are definitely worth the read! ?Remember Me? tells the story of Mary Broad, a fisherman?s daughter ...
