The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Forgive Me, a compelling story of a daughter uncovering her mother’s secret past from the No. 1 bestselling author, Lesley Pearse. Read by the actress Alison Dowling.
Cheltenham, 1991, when Eva Patterson returns home from work one day, a devastating scene awaits her. Her mother, Flora, lies dead in the bath. Beside her is a note saying only: “Forgive Me”. Eva is shocked to find out that her mother was once a successful artist back in the 1960s.
When she visits her mother’s old studio, she finds a collection of Flora’s paintings and diaries. Searching for answers, Eva encounters a psychic who mysteriously warns her to beware of a “sleeping serpent”, which she soon discovers refers to a shocking crime in Flora’s past. Will discovering the truth destroy Eva’s belief in everything she holds dear?

No I havnt but I thought the narration was brilliantly done
"Good book, not for the depressed"
This book was really easy to listen to, and the story moved at a good pace. I did look forward to getting in to the car and listening to it.
The narrator was also really good, and has a neutral accent with great tone and pace.
I would definitely recommend for an easy to listen to book spiced with quite a lot of drama.
The only down point was probably how much bad stuff can happen to one person, and it made the characters from Eastenders' seem like they are living happy lives.
I love this book its a lovely story its also read very well
the person who read it mafe everyone sound right
I enjoyed the story with all the details of Eva and how she tries to find out about her past.
The description of all the places she visits are vivid and real. Good story, spanning decades that keeps you intrigued.
Definitely not ! I found it tedious, patronising and poorly written. I have read a couple of Lesley Pearse books in the past and although they are obviously not great literature they were easy, escapist reads. This was not an easy listen!
Probably not. I found her voice irritating and patronising.
Easy print reads do not necessarily translate well into audio. Easy to skim read but difficult to do this with audio!
"Enjoyable for a womens book!"
I dont usually read womens books (despite being a woman) but I got this one for holiday and enjoyed it enough to recommend it. It has pleasant charecters and a good narrator and alot more intruige than I would have expected from this genre. Buy it!
Yes I would certainly recommend this book to anyone looking for a really good story to listen to I was hooked and had it playing whilst I drove to work on earphones whilst at work and whenever I could grab time.
She narrated all the characters well in believable accents when required she has a very listenable voice.
I wanted to keep listening to this book as I wanted to know what was going to happen next it made me want more and I felt I knew Eva very well by the end and had lived with her right from the begining when she found her mother dead in the bath I cried with her at times
