‘It all happened so quickly. One minute I was squatting on the bare earth, preoccupied with popping pea pods. The next, I saw the flash of a black hand and white cloth, and before I even had a chance to cry out it had sailed towards my face, and completely covered it . . .’ In 1954, in a remote South American village, a four-year-old girl was abducted and then abandoned deep in the Colombian rainforest. So begins the incredible true story of Marina Chapman, who went on to spend several years alone in the jungle, her only family a troop of capuchin monkeys. Using instinct to guide her, she copied everything they did and soon learned to fend for herself. At around ten years old, a completely feral Marina was returned to civilisation by hunters, who sold her to a brothel. After being enslaved and beaten daily, she escaped – to live the perilous existence of a Colombian city street kid. Marina’s life as a wild child wasn’t over. In some ways, it had only just begun. This is her astonishing story.

The authorities give her a new name and despatch her to a children's home. With the war raging around her, what will become of Lisa now? Can't wait for the sequel? The Married Girls is out now! What readers are saying about The Girl With No Name: 'Diney Costeloe has perfectly captured the traumatic atmosphere of the war years both in London and the countryside ... Highly recommended' 'The characters leap from the pages. The Blitz scenes were palpable, imagining what Londoners endured during WW2. Love all Diney's books' 'The author writes with good pace, and excellent descriptions of place and characters, but her main skill is in conveying the personal dilemmas faced by her characters. I shall definitely seek out more books by this author'.

This story follows a girl from kindergarten to college. Nurturing seeds planted in the early days of memory help her through the hardships to come. The human condition is universal, and how we react to the trials of life are what makes us different. Fear, pain, and love all combine to produce the person we become. Like most of us, she was plagued by the bad and blessed by the good. Her life was marked by the limits of both. Innocence is the hallmark of the young and the anchor of a life well lived. Although they are all fictional, characters tend to take on their own lives and you follow them wherever they go. Locations were fairly accurate. The dogs were real and happy to contribute. Writing mirrors the real world and melds with imagination to try to create someone with whom we can empathize. In the end, the muse had her way.

"Will Lightfoot is leaving. He's packed everything he owns into a box and thrown it all away. Then, after stealing a bag of clothes and a pocketful of money from his roommate, he's boarding a Greyhound bus to Philly." "From Maine to Philly to the Poconos to Charleston and, finally, to Atlanta, Will is in search of fulfillment against the often empty promises of a nine-to-five existence and the so-called American Dream. Will winds his way south until he hits Charleston - an apparent paradise. It's here that he meets people just like him - young and energetic, intelligent and listless - particularly the irrepressible Harry. But after a summer of watching the waves and making drinks in the alien South, Will can no longer pretend that he's found what he's looking for." "When he receives a letter from his sister Penny inviting him to live with her in Atlanta, Will's dissatisfaction drives him to accept, with Harry in tow, and soon the pair take up writing restaurant reviews and carousing. Harry's uncompromising view of life and writing, his belief in working toward one's principles, fuels his work on a novel and Will's admiration. Harry, it seems, has found contentment."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
