A Place to Call Home by Lizzie Page
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It took me a while to get into the book. I’ve restarted it four times, and finally, the fourth time was the lucky break. Wonderful story of love and trust and fight and triumph, and long road of orphan children to building a family.
Sometimes it takes only one person to change someone’s life forever. For the children of the Shilling Grange Orphanage, it was Clara Newton. After the war, she has dedicated her time, life and heart to the children who lost everything during the war. And by everything I do not mean the material things, besides their beloved parents, they have lost hope, trust, and security.
Once Ms. Newton finally found her way to her children’s hearts, she received a piece of devastating news. Their home was up for sale, and kids were spread out thru multiple orphanage houses. With no time for grievance, Clara threw herself headfirst into a long fight for her children.
A beautiful and heartwarming story of a blended family. I was very happy I didn’t give up on the book at the beginning. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture publisher for an amazing story.
