Hi there,

Just wondering if anyone has read Ellie and Camellia by Lesley Pearse? I have just finished Camellia, was now going on to read Ellie and have realised Ellie is about some of the same people that were in Camellia and was released first ;)

What I wanted to know was can I still read Ellie - ie is it a totally different story that won't be spoiled by me having read Camellia first?

Thanks in advance for any answers! :censored:

I am reading 'Charity', it is a large book and I am on page 64, it is a brilliant book, but talk about heart wrenching, been crying already. Read a review on Amazon and this person wrote, she cried from start to finish reading this book.

I have now read a lot of Lesley Pearse books, but I have just finished 'Never Look Back', I think this must be one of the best books ever written, I had to put the book down so many times, as I was sobbing my heart out.

I've read both Ellie and Camellia but I can't remember which order I read them in. If I were you I'd definitely go ahead and read Ellie. All Lesley Pearce books are worth a read. 'Hope' has been my favourite.

I've not read any of Lesley Pearse books before but I have Belle on my wish list.

I get the impression Lesley's books are based in 'older times' from what I've read on the net but with being fairly young I wonder if I'll enjoy her writting or not however Belle sounds right up my street from the blurb.

Some are set in times gone by but it varies greatly. She's definitely worth a look :)

Hi,

I personally would have recomended you to read Ellie first as Camellia follows on from it. :blush2:

I am reading this book at the moment as it was to offered to me from Amazon to review. This is my first foray into Lesley Pearce's books and I have to say that her research is very good. I'm quite enjoying this book and I haven't read Belle but I don't think this really matters as the books stands up quite well on its own.

You can't fault Lesley Pearse on her research Sue! You could almost be there in the book sometimes.

I've read all of her books, except The Promise, so far and I think there was only one or two that I didn't enjoy so much. They were still readable but not quite up to the usual standards. I loved Belle and can't wait to get my hands on this one.
