This is a novella so it's not a full length book, but just as satisfying. Great story. Enjoyed
This is a very short clean novella. Maribelle has turned 18 and must leave the orphanage. She is unsure of her future, when she is asked to accompany some orphan children on a train to find homes for them she feels she has no choice. Once this job is over she is not sure where she will live. When at the last stop, all the children are adopted she has mixed feeling. Dan needs help with Connie. When he rushes to adopt a child and finds they are all gone he worked a deal with Maribelle. When misunderstanding and feelings arise what will be the outcome? I was given a copy of this book from the author for my honest opinion.
Cute, Comical with HEA ending What an enjoyable short story of hope, love and happiness. Maribelle was forced to leave the orphanage because she turned eighteen. She is picked to assist with twenty-four adoptable children traveling westward on the orphan train, but at the end, she would be returned to Boston and the unknown. The town blacksmith, Dan, shows up and the last child has already been adopted, but he talks Maribelle into coming home with him, even asking if he needed to adopt her to care for Connie. The story is simplistic and comical in the assumptions that Belle makes about the relationship between Dan and Connie. Dan thanks the Lord for sending Belle and Belle thanks the Lord for not having to return to Boston. The misunderstanding is resolved and ends with a HEA ending. It's a reminder to not assume about a situation and to remember that God is always in control. Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
