The orphanage / Lizzie Page.

Page, Lizzie, (author.).

England, 1948: Many of the children of Shilling Grange Orphanage have been bombed out of their homes, their lives torn apart by the war, just like Clara Newton, their new housemother. Devastated by the loss of her fiancé, a brave American pilot, Clara needs a place to start again, and the orphans are in desperate need of her help. Clara cannot bear to see them suffer, but what does she know about how to look after eight little ones? Overwhelmed, she wonders if they'd be better off without her. But Clara is not completely alone. Living next door is Ivor: a war hero and handyman with deep brown eyes, a gentle voice, and bottomless patience that helps him soothe the children better than anyone. As she heals from her grief and adjusts to her new life, Clara wonders if she has finally found her home and family with the orphans. Can she find the strength to fight for them when nobody else will? And does she dare open her heart to love again?
