Is it wicked to fake your death to escape a loveless and brutal marriage?

Julia married a fisherman, knowing theirs would be a hard life together. But when he returns from the Great War shell-shocked and broken she discovers how hard and bitter life can truly be.

Out in the world alone, surviving only by her wits and resourcefulness, Julia must become someone else. But soon she discovers that once you've done one wicked thing, it is easy to do another. And she begins to wonder whether she will ever do good again . . .Is it wicked to fake your death to escape a loveless and brutal marriage?

Lesley Pearse was told as a child that she had too much imagination for her own good. When she grew up she worked her way through a number of jobs, including nanny, bunny girl, dressmaker and full-time mother, before, at the age of forty-nine, settling upon a career that would allow her gifts to blossom- she became a published writer. Lesley lives in Devon and has three daughters and three grandchildren.
