COURTING MISS ADELAIDE
Adelaide Crum wants more than anything to adopt a child from the orphan train, so she's heartbroken when the committee deems her unsuitable because she's a single woman. Soon a twist of fate makes Adelaide and committee member Charles Graves, the only one who believes she'd make a great mom, owners of the newspaper that Charles edits. They become friends, which brings with it more ups and downs than the printing press. When one of the adoptive mothers pleads with the committee to let Adelaide temporarily keep her daughter Emma, Adelaide is thrilled her wish is finally coming true. Will she be able to cope with a child and run her business? Can she and Charles have a future together? Janet Dean's Courting Miss Adelaide (4.5) is a wonderfully sweet love story that includes facts about the orphan trains of the 1800s.
