Stolen is the number one bestseller from Lesley Pearse.
This is a beautiful young woman is discovered half-drowned on a Sussex beach...Where has she come from?
Why can't she remember who she is - or what happened?
She's wearing an old-fashioned dress and her hair has been hacked off.
She's obviously been bound by the wrists and ankles.
But without knowing her own name or who did this to her, she can't begin to piece together who she is and what led her to this unfamiliar place.
The police are baffled, but when the doctors examine her they make a shocking discovery: she has recently given birth. Who on earth is she? And where is her baby? Stolen is a riveting, nail-biting story of a young woman desperately trying to recover her past and make sense of the woman she used to be.
Lesley Pearse, author of the UK and international best-sellers.
A Lesser Evil and Remember Me, tells a powerful and moving story of identity and self-discovery in her thrilling number one best-seller Stolen.

Review by nicx27
I love Lesley Pearse's novels, and know that when I start one I will be getting a good read, and that's what I got with Stolen. It's the story of Lotte Wainwright, who is found half-drowned on a beach, having lost her memory. The book then follows her experiences in regaining her memory and in so doing she remembers the horrific events that led to her discovery on the beach.This is a very easy to read book, and one which I felt compelled to pick up and read at any available opportunity. I will say that I don't think it's as good as her other work, and I do think she does historical novels much better than modern day stories, but I still think it warrants five stars for the page turning effect of the book.
