Publisher's Summary

Thirteen-year-old Lisa escapes from Nazi Germany on the Kindertransport and arrives in England in August 1939. She can't speak a word of English, and among her meagre belongings is one precious photograph of her family. But when the Blitz blows her new home apart, she wakes up in hospital with no memory of who she is.
The authorities give her a new name and despatch her to a children's home. With the war in full swing, what will become of Lisa now?

Repetitive.

The narrators London accent of the characters was incredibly annoying and her German accent for that matter. Extremely repetitive and would explain everything to the T no room for your own imagination.

Girl with no name!

This is a very good book...I was kept interested all the way through! The narrator is very good and portrayed all the characters with different voices which added greatly to the enjoyment of the story.

LOVED IT!

The best I have listened to! It really gave me a better understanding of what it must have been like living during the blitz - and you could feel the fear people must have felt. It was a good performance by the reader and I highly recommend this book.

A fascinating exploration of how war affects,those left behind

This Story explores in detail the experiences of the civilian population of London during the War.The reader begins the journey from Germany to England through the eyes of a young girl as anti Judaism rises..There is compassion but there is also the wide gamut of human nature,good & bad! The growth of the young girl into an adult,mirrors change,just asLondon & surrounds are transformed .A very compelling novel well performed.
