"A powerful novel of friendship set in a traveling circus during World War II, The Orphans Tale introduces two extraordinary women and their harrowing stories of sacrifice and survival"....
And this story delivers. I read in 24 hours. Couldn't put it down but didn't want it to end.

Really enjoyed this story. Interesting portrayal about identical twins. Both with "senses" and trying hard to lead very separate lives. But still maintaining a strong bond.

rubyslippersreads Sounds interesting. And such a cute kitty! 😻 6y

Found this in a box of items kept from my mom. Written in 1942. These books were written as part of the War Time efforts to keep support for WWII. Will definitely place in my old book collection. But will also read. Title to funny not to.

rubyslippersreads This is adorable! Wasn't there a movie with the same name? 6y
Happybooknerd Yes that's what I heard. 6y

" And past all that is the road that leads out of town. It's black as a licorice whip under an October Sky. Black as the night that's coming, and the long winter nights that will follow. Black as the little town that it leaves behind. "

" think of all the senior discounts she had to look forward too, not to mention Social Security , Medicare or Medicaid. So what if she was afraid to grow old? Big Whoop-de-doo. Who wasn't? She wasn't alone. "
