The Orphans of Mersea House by Marty Wingate

Olive is alone after caring for her mother and is in need of a job.

She applies for a caretaking job, but her friend Margery moves back from London and tells her to not take that job but join her at Mersea Boarding House.

Olive and Margery are life-long friends.  Olive is the sweetest person.  Margery is an ok friend, but a bit tough.

They take in two boarders both with a story behind their personalities.

One day Margery gets a surprise when she is contacted by social services and is asked to care for her old boyfriend's daughter.  Juniper is a sweet girl who lost her mother to polio and now her father.  Juniper also suffered from polio and years of surgery and the iron lung. 

THE ORPHANS OF MERSEA HOUSE is a heartwarming book that has endearing characters and a nostalgic storyline. 
You won't want to stop reading because it takes you back when things were simpler but not necessarily better but just plain sweet.

Enjoy when you read this book. 4/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.
