Christmas At The Orphanage

In most cases an orphanage in the 1870’s at Christmas was not a nice place to be. Forget presents under the Christmas tree, Christmas cake and pudding or mistletoe. If some kindly soul did bring presents for the orphans, they were snatched away by the Matron and her cohorts once the giver had left the premises.

This was the life for Jessica and her friends, just another sad day of hunger, cruelty and hard work in the dreary, dangerous environment of the orphanage. Their Matron was a greedy, sadistic woman who delighted in mistreating her charges, even as she made money out of them.

This was the place where Jessica grew up.

About margarettanner

WHO IS MARGARET TANNER? BIO: Margaret Tanner is an award winning, Australian author, who writes Historical Romance and Western Romance, with some contemporary romance as well. She loves delving into the pages of history as she carries out research for her historical romance novels. No internet site is too hard to traverse, or book too old or tattered for her to trawl through, and no museum is too dusty. Many of her novels have been inspired by true events, with one being written around the hardships and triumphs of her pioneering ancestors in frontier Australia. She has found from writing Western Historical novellas, that frontier Australia and frontier America, had many similarities, isolated communities, a large single male population and a lack of marriageable women. Margaret is married and has three grown up sons, and two gorgeous little granddaughters. Outside of her family and friends, writing is her passion. http://www.margarettanner.com/ http://www.amazon.com/author/margarettanner
