Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Survivor, Lesley Pearse's stunning new novel in the best-selling and enthralling Belle series. Read by the actress Alison Dowling.
London, 1939: Eighteen-year-old Mari is defiant, strong-willed and selfish. She has craved independence her entire life and now, with the World on the brink of war, Mari has finally escaped the sleepy fishing village of her childhood in New Zealand.
After passionately falling for Morgan, the cockney steward aboard ship on her voyage to England, she hastily dismisses him in favour of being taken out by handsome young pilots in the glamorous West end. But, without warning, the Blitz blows her new life apart. Now Mari has the chance to make a difference but can she learn from her mistakes in time?

A girl's development with some unexpected turns
Yes. It holds one's interest throughout and the narration by Alison Dowling is just perfect.
This is the first book by Lesley Pearse that I have read, or rather, listened to. What made the package so good was the combination of Pearse's story-telling and the marvellous narration by Alison Dowling. It seemed also to be carefully researched and historically accurate. Life during the period 1938 through 1945 is well portrayed.
Her accents throughout (and quite a few different ones are needed) are really brilliant.
A story of discovery and survival!
Listen to it! You will be sorry when it comes to an end!
A really good story
I have read the prequels to Survivor and it was nice to catch up with previous characters and to know their back stories. This book does stand alone though.
The atmosphere of life in New Zealand and life in the UK in wartime. The development of Mariette's character as she matured.
Her different accents and her voice was pleasant to listen to.
I experienced a range of emotions, both happy and sad.
