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?

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    "A must listen!"

    A really wonderful story filled with great characters as it twists and turns and delivers insight into the lives of people during WWII.
    The performance of Bea Holland for each character was infallible and highly entertaining.
    I highly recommend this book.

    "great book loved the book"

    Just finish the girl with no name. It's about a German girl that was evacuated to London in the second world war. And how she over come some people hating her because she was German. She went through a lot of up and down. This book will make you cry laugh and smile with happiness. 5 star from me.

    "Great story, not keen on narrator"

    Great story line, exactly the kind of book I love, however, I found the narrator very stilted. Only kept going because I wanted to find out what happened to Liza/Charlotte

    "The Girl with No Name"

    I really enjoyed this book. The story was very moving and the narration excellent. It showed how terrible it was for the German Jews and the appalling bombing in London. I would recommend it wholeheartedly.
