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.More

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 :-)
