Be transported from London to New Orleans and beyond in this powerful, moving historical novel from the international bestseller Lesley Pearse

She witnessed a murder - and now her life is in danger . . .


Fifteen year-old Belle, though raised in a London brothel, is an innocent young girl. But when she witnesses one of the girls brutally strangled by a client, she is cast into a cruel, heartless world.

Snatched from the streets and sold into prostitution, she is made a courtesan in New Orleans. At the mercy of desperate men who crave her beauty and will do anything to keep her, Belle's dreams of home, family and freedom appear futile.

Are Belle's courage and spirit strong enough to help her escape?

And what will await her at the end of the long, dangerous journey home?
