Bart van Es' The Cut Out Girl is the winner of the Costa Biography Award and Costa Book of the Year 2018!

The last time Lien saw her parents was in the Hague when she was collected at the door by a stranger and taken to a city far away to be hidden from the Nazis.She was raised by her foster family as one of their own, but a falling out well after the war meant they were no longer in touch.

What was her side of the story, Bart van Es - a grandson of the couple who looked after Lien - wondered? What really happened during the war, and after? Bart managed to track down Lien (now in her 80s) living in Amsterdam. Reluctantly, she agreed to meet him, and eventually they struck up a remarkable friendship.

This page-turning biography is a powerful recreation of Lien's harrowing childhood and a story about the love and challenges foster families face.
