  • Angst filled WWII fiction

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. The Orphan Thief by Glynis Peters is a story that takes place during World War II when Coventry, England was under siege from the Blitz. Sixteen year old Ruby Shadwell lost her entire family when a bomb hit the house they were living in. All alone in the world Ruby creates a family of her own with others who have been displaced by the bombing. Fred Lester her Gran’s neighbour becomes her honorary Grandfather, Beatty Price who’d lost her husband and home comes to live with them, Tommy Jenkins an orphan who’d been tricked by a Fagin like criminal and young Canadian soldier Jean-Paul Clayton. Both heartwarming and heartbreaking Ruby’s story is one that will inspire you with her grit and determination during a time of great difficulty and loss. Publishing Date November 28, 2019. #NetGalley #TheOrphanThief #GlynisPeters #HarperCollinsPublishers #HarperCollinsCanada #bookstagram #historicalfiction

  • The Orphan Thief

    Sad story but wonderful ending. Could hardly put the book down. Loved how Ruby just got on with her life and how she managed all the challenges she faced at such a young age.
