About this item
Lise is 13 when she arrives in England in August 1939, with just one precious letter from the mother she will never see again. Bullied at school for being German, worse is to come when the Blitz blows her new home apart and she wakes up in hospital, with no memory of who she is or where she came from. Only the letter in her pocket gives a clue as to her identity, so the authorities give Lise a new name, make her a ward of court and despatch her to a children’s home. But one person is sure that she is still alive - Harry, the trouble-prone boy who protected her at school is determined to find and rescue Lise again if he can.
