Heartfelt and moving, The Orphanage Girls Come Home is the beautiful conclusion to the Orphanage Girls series, set during WW1 and travelling from London's East End to Montreal, Canada.
London, 1910. When Amy is chosen to be a part of a programme to resettling displaced children in Canada, her life changes overnight. Her great sadness is having to say goodbye to Ruth and Ellen, the friends who became family to her during the dark days at the orphanage. As she steps on board the ship to Montreal, the promise of a new life lies ahead. But during the long crossing, Amy discovers a terrifying secret.
Canada, 1919. As the decades pass, Amy’s Canadian experience is far from the life she imagined. She always kept Ruth’s address to hand – longing to return to London and reunite with her dear friends. With the world at war, it seems an impossible dream . . .
Separated by oceans, will Amy the orphanage girl ever come home?
