Publisher's Summary

War rages, but the women and children of Liverpool’s Dr Barnardo’s Home cannot give up hope. What more could you wish for than a poignant, heartwarming saga to listen to this Christmas?

Liverpool, 1943
Yorkshire is the place Lana has always called home, but it’s now filled with painful memories of her fiancé, Dickie, who was killed at sea. When she accepts the challenging position of headmistress at a school in Liverpool, she hopes a new beginning will help to mend her broken heart. 

A Battle to Fight
Not everyone at Bingham School is happy about her arrival, but Lana throws herself into the role, teaching children from the local village and the nearby Dr Barnardo’s orphanage. She thrives in her work but soon finds herself falling for a man whom she would once have considered the enemy - and is torn between what she knows is right and taking a risk that might see her lose everything. 

The Strength to Hope
There are children that desperately need her help, and Lana must fight for everyone’s happiness as well as her own. But one young girl in particular shows her that there is a way through the darkness - because even when all seems lost, there is always a glimmer of hope to be found....

Critic Reviews

Praise for Molly Green: "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)

An Orphans Wish

This is the second book I have listened too by Molly Green and read by Julie Maisie. And yet again each and every character comes to life. I’m just sad the book came to an end. But I have a feeling there will be more from this talented author and narrator.
You made my Christmas magical.........Thank you.
