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.

Predictable but enjoyable

Good book, a little long. Very predictable, yet heartwarming.

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!!

Absolutely Loved It!!!

Where does Georgia rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It was the first audiobook I've listened to - great introduction in to the world of Audible.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Absolutely loved Peter - who couldn't? The faithful, ever-trusting young boy grows in to a handsome man, always waiting for Georgia to come back in to his life.

Any additional comments?

Fantasic! The narration was wonderful and had me engaged and wanting more the whole time.
