Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Gypsy by Lesley Pearse, read by Heather Bleasdale.

Gypsy is a compelling historical story of survival from international number one best-selling author Lesley Pearse.

Liverpool, 1893, and tragedy sends Beth Bolton on a journey far from home....

Fifteen-year-old Beth's dreams are shattered when she, her brother, Sam, and her baby sister, Molly, are orphaned. Sam believes that only in America can they make their fortunes, so, reluctantly leaving Molly with adoptive parents, brother and sister embark on the greatest adventure of their lives.

Onboard the steamer to New York, there are rogues aplenty. But Beth's talent with the fiddle earns her the nickname Gypsy - and the friendship of charismatic gambler Theo and sharp-witted Londoner Jack. And after dodging trouble across America, finally the foursome head for the dangerous mountains of Canada and the Klondike River in search of gold.

How far must Beth go to find happiness? And will her travels lead this gypsy to a place she can call home?

Strong characters, good story and well narrated.

This book was a really enjoyable read. About a quarter of the way through I started to wonder where it was going but it’s worth persevering. A nice mix of adventure, hardship and love. Nice to read a book with a strong, intelligent and likeable female lead which I’ve personally found really difficult to find.

Wonderful story .

This book had a very interesting content taking you to many places of interest beautifully fashioned in layers. The characters all where multifaceted which took you through with them not quite knowing what would happen next . Very satisfying .

Enjoyable

Sometimes surprising, sometimes predictable but always interesting. Easy yet great to listen to. I have never read or listened to a book by Lesley Pearse that I have not enjoyed & look forward to the next one.
