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?

"A powerful and moving account of the brutality of war itself." (Tony Benn on The Lost Soldier)
"This book bears powerful witness to a grave injustice." (Martin Bell on The Lost Soldier)
I really enjoyed this book and it had a great story set in the Second World War.
The narrator bought it alive with her different voices.
A fab listen. Really recommend.
Wow! What can I say??? What a beautiful, tragic but heart warming story, the Throw away children by Diney Costeloe was excellent & this one was just as or even more so....
Brilliant narration by Bea Holland also & I just couldn't stop listening to this extraordinary story of Lisa/Charlottes life.
I highly recommend The girl with no name, I'm only sorry that I have finished it now & wait with anticipation to listen to another Diney Costeloe novel......ENJOY!
The love, grief, happiness, all it's twist and turns. Great WW2 book. Can't say to much don't want to spoil anything :-)
The English Girl. Not the same, but still a lot of the same
Yes I really had a problem with putting it down
Just read it
Like a good old fashioned story,or a true crime book. Something not drawn out or a slow storyline.
I enjoyed the whole story.Characters were well thought out.
I could imagine myself to be there.
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
I loved listening to this book, with all its twists & turns. I really didn't want it to end
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.
