Publisher's Summary

In what passes for an ordinary day in a psych ward, Dr. Zoe Goldman is stumped when a highly unusual case arrives. A young African American girl, found wandering the streets of Buffalo in a catatonic state, is brought in by police. No one has come forward to claim her, and all leads have been exhausted, so Zoe's treatment is the last hope to discover the girl's identity.

When drugs prove ineffective and medical science seems to be failing, Zoe takes matters into her own hands to track down Jane Doe's family and piece together their checkered history. As she unearths their secrets, she finds that monsters hide where they are least expected. And now she must solve the mystery before it is too late. Because someone wants to make sure this young girl never remembers.

The Girl Without a Name is a powerful novel of memory and forgetting, of unexpected friendship and understanding...and of the secrets we protect no matter the consequences.

Engaging read!

Thoroughly enjoyed both of this author's books. Great suspenseful read that left me wanting more of this main character!

Could only listen for 1 hour

The narrator and the story were both very disinteresting. I couldn't listen any longer!! The description of the characters didn't make me want to know anything about them either. Sorry; just a poor story and ever poorer read.

The girl gets her name

The book was evenly paced and just enough character build to be able to connect with the readers. I like that the book and life continues even after the main story ends. This gives the story a feel of life goes on regardless of the evil doings of others.

As for the narrative. It was pleasantly easy to listen to and eluded to a young woman doctor still trying to find her place in life. Working in the medical field myself I have met many women whom talk and behave in the manor portrayed
Would love to listen to her again

Annoying!

What was most disappointing about Sandra Block’s story?

I couldn't get into the story, it's rather shallow! The narration was terrible!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Didn't have great dialogue to work with...again very shallow!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No! I even tried speeding up the narration but it didn't help!
