Product Description

Product Description

Discover Suzanne Lambert's magical true story of love and motherhood in Christmas at the Ragdoll Orphanage.



When Suzanne was left, two weeks old, at the door of Nazareth House orphanage, she was abandoned by those who should have protected and loved her. But it was Nancy, a nanny at the orphanage, who was to provide all the love and support that a child could need, going on to fight for the right to adopt Suzanne and give her a mother figure for life.



Christmas at the Ragdoll Orphanage tells the story of these two women, of how their lives entwined and of life at the orphanage. It was a magical place where their lack of money could only be substituted by kindness, as every year Nancy would work tirelessly throughout the night before Christmas to sew together dolls made out of rags, so that the children would have at least one present from Santa. But the story also tells of how their lives came full circle, as towards the end of her life, Nancy developed dementia, with Suzanne in turn becoming the supportive, protective caregiver.



Full of touching, tear-jerking and unforgettable stories, Christmas at the Ragdoll Orphanage is Suzanne Lambert's story of motherhood, childhood and Christmas, and everything that comes between.




Suzanne Lambert is the winner of Penguin and Take a Breakmagazine's life story competition. She lives in Newcastle and this is her first book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant read 12 Nov 2013
By Petal
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful read of a little girl who was loved beyond measure by a "mother" who was blessed to bring her up. You will be angry, you will cry, you will laugh, but most of all you will feel the love from Nancy, and the joy and memories she brought into Susan's life through her own family, her friends and their families and through her birth father and mother. I am an avid reader, but this is one of the most moving and best books I have read in a long time. I didn't want it to end, and I, too, was with you every step of your journey Susan. You are one well loved special daughter, mother grandmother and wife and your life has been truly blessed xx
