Book Overview


LIVERPOOL, 1940
When her childhood sweetheart Johnny is killed in action, Maxine Grey loses more than her husband – she loses her best friend. Desperate to make a difference in this awful war, Maxine takes a nursing job at London’s St Thomas’s hospital.

A BROKEN HEART
She takes comfort in the attentions of a handsome surgeon, but Edwin Blake isn’t all he seems. And as the Blitz descends on the capital, Maxine faces more heartache. When she returns to Liverpool, she harbours a secret.

A BRAVE SPIRIT
When Maxine is offered a job at a Dr Barnardo’s orphanage, she hopes this is the second chance she has been looking for. Do the orphans know that she needs them as much as they need her?

A gripping story of love, friendship and hope in the darkest of places. Molly Green is an exciting new voice in saga fiction, perfect for fans of Nadine Dorries and Katie Flynn.

Reviews


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
