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.

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.
very good read, one of my first audio books and i enjoyed every minute so much so that I got another book from the same Author.
"A wonderful listen.."
Listening to Georgia was wonderful as the story kept evolving. Lots of splendid details.
The way that it was a listen that just wanting you to keep on listening. Never a dull moment during the story.
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.
I was moved by many situations in the book. It is simply a very good story and I can highly recommend it.
I loved the narration and this story ought to be made into a TV serial. It would be an instant hit :-)
The narrators voice is so relaxing ..
When Georgia is getting her termination is was heart rending ..
Hours upon hours of well read , fast moving story telling .. Well worth purchasing ..
This has a great story line and I could not switch off. What an amazing and inspirational story.
I was hooked.
"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!!
having read Lesley Pearce books before they do become a little predictable but still enjoyed this book and her description of characters brings them alive. well worth listening to.
An extremely good listen. One of the best I have downloaded.
