Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Gypsy by Lesley Pearse, read by Heather Bleasdale.

Gypsy is a compelling historical story of survival from international number one best-selling author Lesley Pearse.

Liverpool, 1893, and tragedy sends Beth Bolton on a journey far from home....

Fifteen-year-old Beth's dreams are shattered when she, her brother, Sam, and her baby sister, Molly, are orphaned. Sam believes that only in America can they make their fortunes, so, reluctantly leaving Molly with adoptive parents, brother and sister embark on the greatest adventure of their lives.

Onboard the steamer to New York, there are rogues aplenty. But Beth's talent with the fiddle earns her the nickname Gypsy - and the friendship of charismatic gambler Theo and sharp-witted Londoner Jack. And after dodging trouble across America, finally the foursome head for the dangerous mountains of Canada and the Klondike River in search of gold.

How far must Beth go to find happiness? And will her travels lead this gypsy to a place she can call home?

Yet another amazing book from an amazing author 💙

Another amazing book from Lesley Pearce. Loved it from the very start to finish. The protagonist is very relatable and shows once again the strength that can be found in the hardest of times. Pearce has delivered another don't want to put it down book.
