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)
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
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
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.
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.
