Publisher's Summary

When nine-year-old orphan Georgia James is unexpectedly fostered by the kindly Celia and her bank manager husband, she can hardly believe her luck. But then - on her 15th birthday - she suffers the cruellest betrayal of all at the hands of her foster father and is forced to run away, leaving everything she loves behind.

Penniless, sleeping rough, Georgia is soon introduced to the sleazy Soho world of brassy strippers, sweat shops, camaraderie, and hardship. Fired by a fierce ambition, blessed with an extraordinary voice, her long struggle for fame and fortune begins. But even when she reaches the top, she finds that the scars of the past can open up to ruin her.

    Story
    "A wonderful listen.."
    What made the experience of listening to Georgia the most enjoyable?

    Listening to Georgia was wonderful as the story kept evolving. Lots of splendid details.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way that it was a listen that just wanting you to keep on listening. Never a dull moment during the story.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    It is difficult to choose a favorite scene but I did like hearing about the beginning of Georgias singing career and her interaction with the band.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved by many situations in the book. It is simply a very good story and I can highly recommend it.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the narration and this story ought to be made into a TV serial. It would be an instant hit :-)

    "Georgia by Lesley Pearce"

    Gripping storyline, very well read, not a good one to go to bed with though, it will keep you awake listening to a graphically described plot!!

    "Disappointing"

    I didn't enjoy this story at all, I couldn't seem to identify with the character of Georgia or see her even in my mind. The story was really boring with not much going on really & I very nearly just stopped listening a few times through boredom! But wanted to see it to the end anyway in case it picked up.

    The narrater I didn't think was very good either, I disliked her attempt at male voices & found it quite comical when it wasn't supposed to be! And the sex scenes were just cringe!!!
    It's a shame because I did really enjoy Belle by Lesley Pearse but not this one.

    "Easy story to listen to"

    I found the story easy to
    get involved with, but too sugary in places. The storyteller male voices were hard to stomach at times.
    Georgia character was not at times convincing.

    Story
    "Quite enjoyable for an easy listen"
    Would you listen to Georgia again? Why?

    No. Only because I never miss a word when I'm listening.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Georgia?

    I don't want to give the story away. Just the part about her friend that she lived with


    Which character – as performed by Emma Powell – was your favorite?

    The father! Emma made him sound the way he should be


    Any additional comments?

    No negative comments at all. Listening to this book made me search out more from the author and the narrator

    "Excellent"

    This is the second one I've listened to, by this lovely woman. Totally engaging! Vibrant descriptions of 1960's London - so good I thought I'd lived it myself. A bit predictable in places, but the main character is so lovable, I easily over looked it. Can't wait to start in on the next one.
