An Orphan's Wish is a moving story happening during WW II. Lana is a young woman who desperate after losing her fiance, opts for a change and moves from Yorkshire to Liverpool, taking a temporary position in Liverpool village school. She takes on this new challenge especially when she gets involved with nearby Dr. Barnardo Orphanage. She compassionately works with children in the orphanage, helping them to cope with their emotional life circumstances, teaching them, supporting them, and finding ways to bring the best in them. That "favour" is returned in moments she had reached her weak point, when one of her students comes through for her. I felt inspired by love, support, and care in this story. Also, it gets you to think about love and what levels someone would go to in the name of love. Nice book to read.
