Bookmark of Spalding has chosen A Christmas Angel at the Ragdoll Orphanage as its book of the week.

When Suzanne was left, at two weeks old, at the door of an orphanage, it was Nancy the nanny who fought for the right to adopt her.

Now, 60 years later, Suzanne is sharing the untold story of all the many orphans that her mother Nancy saved throughout the 1940s and ’50s.

As a teenager, Nancy accompanied the orphans to the other side of the country when they were evacuated during the war years. When they finally returned, six long years later, she vowed to dedicate her life to the children.

A Christmas Angel at the Ragdoll Orphanage tells the story of a remarkable woman, who worked tirelessly to give society’s most vulnerable children a chance of home and happiness.

Full of touching, tear-jerking and unforgettable stories, this is a wondrously festive book all about the real meaning of motherhood.

The book retails for £6.99 but there is a 20 per cent discount voucher in the Spalding Guardian of December 15.
