Georgina's latest work

This dazzling series shows that if the barriers can be vaulted there is true beauty to be had from the lesser-walked streets of literature. These works are both nourishing and inspiring, and a gift to any reader.

Kerry Hudson

A chance break in a West End theatre production forces a derailed actress to confront her demons and offers her an opportunity to escape her past and live life to the full.

Cora, a once promising actress, is trapped by circumstances and immobilized by a disheartening career path, failed relationships and a battered sense of self. Set against a background of a country split by politics and disjointed through lives that are increasingly isolated and lonely, this is a short, sharp story of small victories and immense moral courage.
