Delighted to say congratulations to Glynis Peters on the publication today of The Forgotten Orphan. I first met Glynis in 2017, and it’s been lovely to see her writing career soar after she signed with Harper Collins imprint, One More Chapter the following year. Glynis has now established herself as a beloved WWII Historical Romance novelist with a string of global bestseller awards. Enjoy your success Glynis and I’m sure The Forgotten Orphan will fly as high, if not higher, than your previous books.
About the book
A world at war
A secret from her past
A chance to be together…
A moving and compelling historical novel about love, second chances and resilience in the darkest of times.
Abandoned when she was tiny, Maisie Reynolds was separated from her twin brother and forced to grow up in Holly Bush orphanage – a place where she has never known love or kindness.
But with the world at war and Hitler’s devastating bombs coming ever closer, fate has other plans for Maisie and a secret from her past changes everything.
When she meets handsome Canadian paratrooper, Cam, Maisie learns that love might not be lost to her after all – but not before her past life and D Day bring a tragic twist to her happiness.
