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?

I just loved it

What made the experience of listening to The Girl with No Name the most enjoyable?

The love, grief, happiness, all it's twist and turns. Great WW2 book. Can't say to much don't want to spoil anything :-)

What other book might you compare The Girl with No Name to, and why?

The English Girl. Not the same, but still a lot of the same

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I really had a problem with putting it down

Any additional comments?

Girl with no name!

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.

Repetitive.

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.
