Overview

Emma Wright knows the loneliness of being an orphan. Maybe that's why her Maryland home seems to attract children left parentless by accident or by the recent Civil War. It is hard to care and provide for them on a nurse's salary, and finding Christian homes for them requires more wisdom than Emma possesses on her own. As strong and independent as she seems, Emma dreams of the day a strong, Christian husband will share her burden, and she thinks her prayers might be answered when she meets the handsome carpenter Nate O'Neil. But, though the war is over, Nate is still fighting a battle inside himself. How can he offer himself to a fine woman like Emma when he still bears the guilt of past deeds? While Emma and Nate wrestle with their problems, the seven children in Emma's care decide to take matters into their own hands.

Emma’s Orphans is at times a cute and charming story and at time scary that this probably happened after the war when so many children were orphaned.  Emma has her own back story to deal with as she takes on a little boy, Matt who is the only survivor in a carriage crash.    You can see my full review at More Than a Review dot com where I rate the level of sex, violence, language and drug/alcohol use in books.
