In the 2018 Costa prize-winning book, Bart van Es tells the true story of Lien, a Jewish girl who was taken away from her family to escape persecution in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands. Lien spent time with van Es’ grandparents before she was ‘cut out’ of yet another family. Bart van Es explores Lien’s side of the story and in doing so pieces together her harrowing childhood and transforms both of their lives.
