A Home For Unloved Orphans

I’ve been reading and reviewing a few books about orphans in England during WWII. A Home For Unloved Orphans (The Orphans of Hope House Book 1) is set in America in the time of the Great Depression. A Home For Unloved Orphans Virginia, 1933: Her heart broke as she took in the scene before her. There were too many orphans and not enough beds. The rags they wore barely covered them and they hadn’t eaten in days. How could anyone let innocent children live like this? She picked up a tiny girl who’d cried as she moved past her cot.

The House by the Lake

The House By The Lake is the third book of Ella Carey‘s that I’ve read and I enjoyed it as much as the other tow. This is the second book of the trilogy inspired by Marthe de Florian‘s famous Paris apartment. I reviewed the first book, Paris Time Capsule, in which the apartment is described in vivid detail. In this book the Paris apartment is mentioned as a newspaper article which sets off a memory and the story that follows.

Home At Summer’s End

This is the fourth and last story of Anderson sisters and their friend Annie and I was sad to leave the characters of  Hillsboro behind when I finished Home At Summer’s End. Home At Summer’s End Rose Anderson is done with being known as “the nice one” in the small town where she lives. She’s done with playing third, fifth, seventh wheel at loud gatherings on her family’s flower farm. And most of all, she is done with the pitying looks she gets about her single status from the way-too-interested townsfolk. Busy with her flower-arranging business, Rose has no time for
