Synopsis

**'Yet another great Lesley Pearse novel' Woman Magazine** **'Full of love, passion and heartbreak' Best** Two very different women, one unlikely friendship. In the chaos of war-torn Britain, can any relationship survive? Dead to Me is a story about loyalty, love and the strength of friendship in the face of adversity, from international number one bestselling author Lesley Pearse. Spring 1935. On London's Hampstead Heath two girls meet by chance: well-mannered and smartly dressed Verity and dishevelled and grubby Ruby. Yet the mismatched pair form an instant friendship strong enough to survive their parent's disapproval. When war engulfs the country - sending Ruby to Devon while Verity struggles to find a new beginning under a shadow from her past - the girls are convinced they will always be there for each other. Until the day one breaks the other's heart . . . Can Verity and Ruby find a way back to each other before it's too late? Praise for Lesley Pearse 'Epic romantic drama set in post-war London' Heat Magazine 'A heart-warming and evocative tale that is a real delight to read' Sun 'A narrative that gallops along, this is quintessential Pearse that will delight her army of readers' Daily Mail 'Must have' Sunday Express 'Evocative, compelling, told from the heart' Sunday Express 'Utterly riveting, brilliant' Closer 'Glorious, heartwarming' Woman & Home 'This gripping tale of war and friendship is perfect for a long day of beach reading.'
