An Orphan’s War: One of the best historical fiction books you will read this year Kindle Edition
PRAISE FOR MOLLY GREEN
‘Molly Green creates realistic characters and situations that keep you turning the pages.’ Katie Fforde
'A moving, gripping story set during WW2, of a woman's dedication to the orphans in her care and her heart wrenching love.’ Kitty Neale
‘Redolent of wartime Britain and brimming with heartfelt stories from several characters, Molly Green's sure-footed novel shows just how challenging it was to find love and a place to call home in the dark days of the war.’ Terri Fleming
‘A lovely, heartfelt, warming slice of saga fiction … There is a gentleness to the writing as it walks some difficult paths, ensuring AN ORPHAN’S WAR is an engaging, generous read.’ Liz Robinson, LoveReading
‘A gripping read’ My Weekly
‘Memorable characters, a well written, plausible plot and very good descriptions of the time and place. The scenes and details of Dr Barnardo’s are especially interesting as the plight of orphans is rarely considered when we think of World War Two … We often forget the ordinary people surviving day-to-day ‘back home’.’ Discovering Diamonds Blog--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is the story of a young war widow who was in training in London to become a nurse. She fell in love with a married surgeon (without knowing he was married) and became pregnant. She refused to abort the child but did give him up for adoption. She then became a nurse in one of the Barnardo orphanages in Liverpool. She has to live with the guilt of giving up her son. She sets out to help all the children at the orphanage especially a young half-German boy whose Father was a Nazi officer.
The twists in this story just keep coming. It is really a good book

If I go on anymore I will spoil it, so my suggestion is to read this book.
One thing I found out about this author Molly Green there is another book called An Orphan in the Snow which is a tying with this book it is on the Matron of Barnardos that employs Maxine, so I am now reading this one.
1940, July, the battle of Britain was raging, Maxine makes a good friend, Anna, the Hospital took a direct hit, Anna is killed, a surgeon noticed Maxine and asked her out, this was a mistake he was rude arrogant and married and left Maxine pregnant, Edwin dumped her, Maxine had the baby but had the little boy adopted by a good family
Trying to find work Maxine applied for a job as nurse in a Children's Home
