The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

Author: Jim Cartwright

Summary: Little Voice (LV) lives alone with her mother Mari whose imposing presence drives the shy LV into spending her time in her bedroom listening to her beloved father's records. When small-time impresario Ray Say hears LV's faultless impersonation of famous singers, he recognises the gold in her voice and determines to exploit it, but the whirlwind rush for success breaks LV and dashes Ray's hopes. Finally, however, LV gains the courage to sing in her own voice.
