Publisher's Summary

Thirteen-year-old Lisa has escaped from Nazi Germany on the Kindertransport. She arrives in London unable to speak a word of English, her few belongings crammed into a small suitcase. Among them is one precious photograph of the family she has left behind.

Lonely and homesick, she is adopted by a childless couple. But when the Blitz blows her new home apart, she wakes up in a hospital with no memory of who she is or where she came from. The authorities give her a new name and dispatch her to a children's home.

With the war raging around her, what will become of Lisa now?

Best Book I Have Read In 2018!

And I read a lot!
I don’t know where to begin. The story is perfectly written. (Diana Galbaldon is my all time favorite writer). So for me this this is high praise Diney Costeloe. All Characters, even minor characters, were fully developed. I cared about these characters.

Congrats, Ms. Costeloe!

Love this book!!!

This is the second book I’ve listen to by this author. Second was as great as the first. Incredible historical fiction. It pairs the tragedy of war with the triumph of the human spirit. Highly recommend!

Excellent Read!

This book was excellent and kept me fully involved in the character live's from start to finish. I could say many good things about this book, but I think what impressed me the most was the feeling that I (from my own living room) was experiencing first hand the bombing of England during the Blitz and the extreme impact it had on people's lives. Seeing how they coped during this extreme period of history seemed very relevant to me at this particular time due to the disruption of people's lives today due to the covid-19 virus. I don't mean to suggest the two are comparable, but even so, this particular story seemed to me to be a very relevant look at history for this particular time as well as the past.
Worth the credit. I highly recommend!

Too long and repetitive

I did enjoy this story but I got to a point where I just wanted it to be over. I think it was about two hours too long. The author felt that she had to actually reallyexplain something when Charlotte/Lise was telling someone something that happened. If I had been actually reading the book as opposed to listening to it, I would have skipped a number of chapters just to get to the end.

That said, I would still recommend it to someone as an audiobook, because The narration was wonderful, even if some of the boys sounded like munchkins from the Wizard of Oz

Absolutely Excellent read!

I loved this book from start to finish. Some reviews said it was to long. I thought it was just right. It takes you on a roller coaster of emotions. Up and down. I found myself talking to the book from time to time. Lol. Don’t hesitate use your credit. It’s so worth it.

Enjoy the Book, Not the Sound

Great story and good performance. Performance was overshadowed by having to hear every swallow, sound, page turn, etc., emanating from the narrator. At times it was downright gross. Not her fault, horrible editing and equipment.

I Read a Different Book

Wow, I’m surprised at all the high ratings for such a mediocre book. I tried to make it to the end & just couldn’t. Every other reviewer who said it dragged on was correct - if it should’ve been edited by half.
Narration was ok, but the portrayal of certain characters was annoying. Usually it’s the other way around, but maybe a better story would’ve elevated it. Whatever the case, I’ll avoid this author and narrator in the future.
