Belle by Lesley Pearse

Hiya! I just really wanted to share with you a book I recently downloaded on my Kindle &  finished reading called "Belle" by Lesley Pearse! This was one of those books you start reading and can not put down!!. I especially love a book that has such a strong female character like Belle, she is such a fighter. It was my first book I have read of Lesley's and cant wait to read more of her books. Here is the Book description from Amazon.
 "London 1910 Fifteen year-old Belle has lived in a brothel in Seven Dials all her life, with no understanding of what happens in the rooms upstairs. But her innocence is shattered when she witnesses the murder of one of the girls and, subsequently snatched from the streets by the killer, she is sold into prostitution in Paris. No longer mistress of her own fate, Belle is blown across the globe to sensuous New Orleans where she comes of age and learns to enjoy life as a courtesan. Yet thoughts of home  and the knowledge her status as golden girl cannot last compel her to break out of her gilded cage.But Belle finds escaping tougher than she imagined, for her life is threatened by desperate men who crave her beauty and attention. Armed only with resourcefulness and spirit, she has a long and dangerous journey ahead of her.Will courage be enough to sustain her? Can she make it back to her family and friends and find her chance at true happiness?Number One bestseller Lesley Pearse has created in Belle a heroine for our times: a strong woman who stands up for right in a world turned bad."
