Okatibbee Creek Series book 2


An Orphan’s Heart is the real-life story of Ellen Rodgers, who with the broken spirit of an orphan and the soul of a gypsy, leaves her empty home in Mississippi to start a new life in Alabama. Eventually, she has to return to face her demons and learns you can never go home again. Finally, she ventures to the great plains of Texas and finds what her heart yearns for, only to have everything ripped from her in a shattering turn of events.

Follow the great adventure of a young woman’s travels across the rugged 1880′s Deep South in search of the only thing that is important to her…love.



An Orphan's Heart is the life story of a young girl searching for love and happiness. The ending will break your heart but give you hope. Lori Crane has quickly become my favorite author and I can't wait to read her next book. This is a five-star book written by a five-star author.
