Q is for Queenie #AtoZChallenge

When I was a kid, I remember finding a book in my parents collection called Queenie. It was by a guy called Michael Korda and it became one of those stories that I would think about for weeks, months afterwards. Actually, it was probably years because I still wonder about it now... and that's a LONG time ago.
Looking it up now, I see that it was made into a TV mini series. Shame, I would have liked to have seen it back then. It was such a wonderful rags to riches sort of story.

Queenie by Michael Korda

The seductive and beguiling story of Dawn Avalon, who when wrongfully accused of a crime she didn't commit, flees her homeland to London where she becomes 'Queenie', a star of both the stage and screen.


  1. OMG, Suzy!! I totally watched Queenie when it was on TV!! As a high school kid, I LOVED it - I remember Mia Sarah, Kirk Douglas, Joss Ackland...and a young good looking guy. I never read the book, but as when you read the book, when I saw the miniseries, it really got it hooks into me and had me dreaming about it for ages!

  2. Really??!! That's so awesome, GVR!!! So nice to meet someone who even knows it LOL!
