ANOTHER of Richard and Judy's recommendations, Little Girl Lost is a powerful true story of survival.

In 1945, seven-year-old Barbie and her sister Eva are trapped and terrified in war-torn Germany. With their father missing and hundreds of miles away from their mother, the siblings must make a terrible choice: to face invasion or flee on foot.

Eva, 19, was determined to find her mother, but for Barbie, 12 years her junior, the journey was far more perilous.

Spurred on by her sister's courage and her desperate desire to be reunited with her mother, she joined Eva on a journey no child should ever have to endure.

The pair encountered unimaginable hardship over their 300-mile cross-country journey, but it was tempered with courage and overwhelming generosity. Against all the odds, they survived, but neither of them emerged unscathed.
