I have been planning to read Stolen for some time, the cover blurb has always intrigued me and I was keen to find out more about the story of a young woman washed ashore on a beach, clearly having escaped from being mistreated.
It was a fascinating read, I loved how the story built throughout the book, not giving too much away early on. However what few clues were dropped were quite huge and I picked up on them and immediately had my suspicions where they might lead.
The main characters are good and well written my only reservation was that some of the secondary characters were a little one dimensional and very typecast.
Pearse has a very specific style of writing and many of her novels have similar heroines, very sweet innocents whom the big bad world rails against. Stolen fits that mould and if you liked her previous books I’m sure you will love this
