For the Sake of the Children (by June Francis)

'For the Sake of the Children' is a war-years historical novel by June Francis.

Set in war-torn England. Amelia, who gave up her chance of marriage to look after her father and younger sister, is suddenly landed with her orphaned nieces and nephews, and her best friend's twin sons.

How she copes, and grows from being cold and dutiful to warm and caring is the focus of the book, along with the trials of the children as they learn to live together, to trust each other, and to grow up and develop new and lasting relationships. Enjoyable.
