Lana and May are a very long way from home. Their Nigerian parents have emigrated to England in search of a better life for their family. Nineteen fifties London is a great adventure to the girls but not always welcoming. There are signs in windows of lodging houses warning: `no blacks, no dogs, no Irish'. When tragedy strikes and the girls lose their father, their mother is unable to cope. When she fails to recover from the surprise birth of another child, all three girls are sent to an orphanage. Lana is determined to keep her sisters together but when baby Tina is cruelly taken from them, she must face the possibility of their family being torn apart - perhaps forever... A heartbreakingly lovely and original saga celebrating black history which will appeal to historical fiction readers new and old.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"ORPHAN SISTERS by Lola Jaye The story of Lana, May and Tina, three sisters who find themselves alone in 1950s London after losing their parents is as remarkable as it is touching. Lola's ability to evoke the era and create characters who you are rooting for from the word go, takes a real talent. Orphan Sisters is a brilliant saga novel in the mould of some of the classics" -- DOROTHY KOOMSON
