In a time that the United States is as divided as ever, it takes real evil for all sides to come together in disgust of the same thing. The titular character in "The Orphan Collector" is that evil. Just as Republicans and Democrats have come together to protest the children in cages along the US southern border, readers of "The Orphan Collector" will come together to find Bernice Groves the height of villainy through her merciless dividing of immigrant families during a pandemic that rivaled the First World War in killing.
"The Orphan Collector" is timely as well for its depiction of a new, frightening virus that sweeps across the world and infects members of every race and class. Highly recommend!
