People have described 'Never Look Back' as one of the best intriguing novels Lesley Pearce has written. I contend she is the most lazy author I have ever read, and if anything, should have put this particular story in seven books and not one. She has the amazing gift of skipping to the end, wilfully overlooking what would be the more interesting story and preferring to refer back to the alleged incident in one or two sentences. Example: Matilda is ready to embark on a dangerous journey with... (read more)

I have read many of Lesley Pearse books & usually found them hard to put down, however 'never look back' was too dragged out in parts & not nearly as good as her others.
Also on page 728 Tabitha states that in 25 years of marriage they had not had a cross word & next paragraph her son Giles being 26 years of age! & yet there was never any mention of them 'having to get married'? Was this a slip of the writers pen?
I shall of course continue to read her books (read more)

The first Lesley Pearse novel I read was Hope and eventhough I read three more of her novels and thoroughly enjoyed each one of them, Hope stayed my favourite. I started reading Never look back with some doubt in my mind. The back info didn't seem interesting and even the first few pages didn't really hold my attention, but I kept on reading and by the second chapter I was hooked. It's really such an amazing journey to read about Maddy's life and you never know what to expect. I really... (read more)

I have just finished, Never Look Back and oh my God it is absolutely fantastic. I have read alot of Lesley Pearse's books and never thought anything could beat Hope as I think this was an absolutely fantastic book which I have shared with all my friends and family and everyone of them have come back with the same conclusion best book they have ever read but I now think that I have just read a better book than Hope in Never Look Back. I read so many books it is ridiculous and normally read... (read more)

I have just finished reading Never Look Back by Lesley Pearse. I cannot believe anyone person could bear so much death and sadness in one life time. I love the way Lesley writes but I don't think I will be reading another book of hers as it left me so depressed. I have also read Hope. I can't say I enjoyed reading Hope because again there was so much sadness. I guess that is what goes with that period if one has no money. She is a great writer but too sad for me. (read more)

Lesley Pearse, Never Look Back - To be honest, I've now been reading this book for three months! I read a few pages every night. I sometimes wonder if it will ever end!
It's a good enough story and one I won't stop reading till I've reached the end, but I feel Lesley tends to go on a bit and repeats herself unnecesarily.
It's the first book I've read of hers and unfortunately, it will be the last. (read more)
