Thieving, swindling, controlling ... that's Irene's stepfather. Her mother showers her little girl with abuse and neglect instead of love, and Irene spends her childhood in utter deprivation and hardship. And for some inexplicable reason her mother will not tell her who her real father is. Will she ever be able to find out for herself? Luckily Irene has a safe haven with her loving auntie and uncle, but when they move away she is left alone to fend for herself in a family where she just doesn't fit in. Irene resolves to leave her horrible family behind, and her determination to escape what life has thrown at her leads her to a dream career as a nurse. Her confidence grows, and her ambition of carving out her own future is boosted by a good nose for a property deal. And might she find happiness in love when she least expects it?

‘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.

Lonely and homesick, Lisa is adopted by a childless couple. But when the Blitz blows her new home apart, she wakes up in hospital with no memory of who she is or where she came from. 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'.

By the author of Waiting in Vain: “A sparkling gift, the tale of a meager, shoeless, raggedy abandoned Cinderella whose hardships make her all the wiser” (The Washington Post). Set in 1942 on the imagined island of San Carlos—a cultural cocktail of Trinidad, Cuba, and Jamaica—this is the story of Estrella Thompson, a headstrong fourteen-year-old girl who’s forced to fend for herself when she’s banished from the isolated fishing village where she’s lived all her life. “The Caribbean tragi-comedy of class and colour finds a richly eloquent voice in this pin-sharp innocent abroad.” —The Independent “[Channer] writes with rare transparency, as though this story of a 14-year-old outcast welled up from the depths of the collective unconscious . . . a jewel of a book.” —Booklist “A picaresque set on the fictional Caribbean island of San Carlos in 1942, Channer’s rewarding and tense novella follows the journey of fishing village outcast Estrella Thompson, a precocious 14-year-old with a woman’s body who seeks shoes, employment and acceptance.” —Publishers Weekly “There’s something timeless about Estrella’s yearning for a better life . . . a fairy-tale novella of betrayal and hope.” —Kirkus Reviews
