The Orphan Collector (by Ellen Marie Wiseman) … interesting historical fiction

This book was interesting to read at this point in history as we struggle with the worldwide epidemic of COVID. The issues of race and bigotry are brought forth. The details about the Spanish flu was interesting and provided information of which I was not aware. The character of Bernice was simply evil. Her prejudices were overwhelming and led her to be a very bitter woman. I also had some issues with Pia’s sixth sense of who was ill just by touching them. This was an emotionally challenging book to read. It is a difficult story but is one that I think would appeal to fans of historical fiction.

Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Publishing Corporation for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
