Belle Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Belle, from the number one best-selling author, Lesley Pearse. She witnessed a murder - and now her life is in danger. Fifteen year-old Belle, though raised in a London brothel, is an innocent. But when she witnesses one of the girls brutally strangled by a client, she is cast into a cruel, heartless world. Snatched from the streets and sold into prostitution, she is made a courtesan in New Orleans. At the mercy of desperate men who crave her beauty and will do anything to keep her, Belle's dreams of home, family and freedom appear futile. Are Belle's courage and spirit strong enough to help her escape? And what will await her at the end of the long, dangerous journey home? Lesley Pearse, author of number one bestseller Stolen, has done it again with Belle - a heroine for our times: a strong woman trying to be good in a world gone bad.
