911 Dauphin Street is the story of a young girl who is forced to separate from her brothers and move to an orphanage in another city. She never loses the determination to be reunited with them but finds herself making life-long friendships and ultimately has the opportunity to help change the course of the life of another orphan.

Opinionated and quick-witted Nell Crosby has only one thing on her mind—to reunite with the two brothers she was forced to leave behind in a distant Alabama county. And as dead set as she is on never letting her new home in a strange city or the people there win her approval, her complaints and oftentimes amusing sarcasm are no match for two wise old cooks or the likable boy who refuses to be anything but her friend. Add the daily shenanigans of a small, quirky orphan girl, and Nell begins to soften. She begins to see things in a different light. Though her determination to find her brothers never waivers, she now finds herself connected to people and to a place in a way she never thought possible. Inspired by the early history of the Protestant Orphanage Street in Mobile, Alabama, 911 Dauphin Street is a down-to-earth, heartfelt story of faith, hope and healing.

Loved It I was interested in the characters and invested in the storyline from the beginning to the end. Nell’s character had to overcome many hardships in her young life. She is spunky and determined and my admiration for her grew with every page. The author built a wonderful cast of characters to surround Nell. One of my favorites was Jubie. She was full of spirit, compassion and love. Her kind little soul came through in every situation. There are many other memorable characters, both children and adults, that make this story so interesting. I highly recommend this look into the lives of the residents at 911 Dauphin Street. Read more
Great read I really enjoyed reading this book and getting involved in the story and the outcome at the end. Not only did the book hold my attention, I was pleased with reading about the good character in Nell and some of the others. This book shows how God's goodness wins, and I love reading about that!
