Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

Once upon a time, best-selling author Loree Lough literally sang for her supper, performing before packed audiences throughout the Midwest. Now and then, she blows the dust from her 6-string to croon a tune or two for her grandkids or to sing at weddings or funerals, but she mostly just writes. Over the years, her stories have earned hundreds of industry and Readers' Choice awards and 4- and 5-star reviews.Loree has nearly five million copies of her books in circulation, and in March 2014, she added her hundredth published book to the shelves. She has written fiction and nonfiction for kids and adults (2,500-plus articles and 68 short stories), and four of her novels have been optioned for movies. To date, there are almost 66,000 letters in her "Reader Mail" file, and she has answered every one, personally. (A carton of books is on its way to Corinna P. of San Antonio, Texas, for writing the 65,999th letter. Corinna said she plans to donate the books to her local library!)Loree loves sharing learned-the-hard-way lessons about the craft and the industry, and her comedic approach to teaching makes her a favorite (and frequent) guest of writers' organizations, book clubs, private and government institutions, and college and high school writing programs in the U.S. and abroad.A writer who believes in "giving back," Loree dedicates a portion of her income to Soldiers' Angels, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, and several other worthwhile organizations (see the "Giving Back" tab at her Web site, http://www.loreelough.com, for a complete list). She splits her time between a tiny home in the Baltimore suburbs and an even tinier cabin in the Allegheny Mountains, where she continues to perfect her Critter Tracks Identification skills. She shares her life with her real-life hero, Larry, who rarely complains, even when she adds yet another item to her vast collection of "wolf stuff."

    Emma's Orphans by Loree Lough*****

    Emma Wright and her sister Jenni are heading home from visiting their Aunt Stella's grave when they hear a loud commotion in the street. A team of horses hitched to a wagon has been spooked by a snake. John Evans, the black smith holds the reigns tightly trying to get them under control. As the horses bolt tearing down the street, John is pulled from the wagon and then his wife tumbles out of the wagon. Their two sons in the back of the wagon hold on with all their strength but the wagon hits a rock in the road and the youngest boy is thrown from the wagon. From nowhere a man on a horse races toward the spooked horses and jumps onto one of them and finally stops the wagon. He walks back to the wagon and lifts the boy out and carries him across the street and hands him to Emma encouraging her to take Matthew away until they determine how his family is.

    Matthew is the first of seven orphaned children that find their way to Emma's home over the next several weeks and months. These children were made orphans during the war and were placed on a train to meet up with the town doctor who has found them homes with good families. Only they do not know his real plans are really to sell them to families. They hear rumors of how mean he is and decide to hide instead of meeting him as they had been told to do. With the help of Matthew they find their way to Emma's, who takes them in and loves them as her own.

    Nate O'Neil has returned home from the Civil War and is still war-weary. Setting up a carpenter and blacksmith shop in his home town of Ellicott City, Maryland, he hopes to put the war and the memories behind him. Because he feels that his past is unforgivable he vows to stay away from Emma, but circumstances continually bring them together and he finds himself falling in love with her. But would she care for him if she knew his past?

    One day Nate sees a man from his past he did not want or expect to ever see again, a fellow soldier Hank Campbell. What is Hank doing here in Ellicott City? Something is strange about Hank being in town and even stranger that he seems to know the town doctor. He has a bad feeling about the whole thing.

    With the story taking place in Ellicott City, MD, (just 36+ miles from my home) and the main character, Emma being a nurse, (I am a nurse too), it captured my attention right off and it was fun to read about nurses in the 1800's and the challenges they faced. Add to that the twists and turns the story takes; unexpected problems they each face and how they deal with them and love and forgiveness from God makes Emma's Orphans a very enjoyable book.
