Marie-Grace and the Orphans

Marie-Grace can’t believe what she finds on her doorstep one rainy night—a baby! More than anything, Marie-Grace hopes her father will let the little boy stay with them. But when a slave catcher comes looking for him, Marie-Grace realizes the baby is in terrible danger. Together, she and her friend Cécile come up with a way to keep the child safe. Just when Marie-Grace thinks their plan will work, rumors of a deadly fever begin to swirl through New Orleans. Soon Marie-Grace wonders if anyone will be safe.
