HOMEWARD THE SEEKING HEART by Jane Peart
Toddy finds herself leaving Greystone Orphanage with her two good friends and heading on an adventure on a train that will take them West to hopefully be adopted. Toddy finds herself in the home of Octavia Hale, a wealthy widow who is seeking a companion for her invalid grand-daughter, Helene. Toddy and Helene will become the best of friends, "sisters", and will bring great joy into the household, but will Toddy ever find real joy in her life? Although there was romance in this story, it wasn't the "center stage" of the story, but rather the life of Toddy and her seeking heart, trying to find a place she can truly call "home".
