Oakwood Orphanage
The Past is Out to Get You
by Emily Marie

When seven-year-old Dahlia’s parents are killed in a tragic house fire, she is taken away to a mysterious orphanage. Ten years later, she and her close friends at the orphanage are suffering ongoing abuse at the hands of the cruel matron and the unkind therapist, who seems to have a personal vendetta against Dahlia. When things suddenly get worse, the traumatized but feisty teenagers at Oakwood Orphanage band together and fight for a new life, fight for freedom, while battling their own dark pasts that are pushing back. Plagued by nightmares about the fire that killed her parents, a desperate Dahlia searches for answers that will bring her closure, but soon her past comes back to haunt her, and the only way to get past it is to face it head on.

Emily Marie has always been an avid reader with a dream of one day becoming an author. A former ballet dancer, she wrote her own children’s books as a child and shared it excitedly with those closest to her. She lives with her family and her dog and cat, Nova and Mika, in British Columbia, Canada. (She would especially like to thank Mika for walking across her keyboard many times during the writing process and giving her a heart attack.) Oakwood Orphanage is her debut novel, and she is currently writing a sequel. For more information about Emily, visit her author accounts on TikTok and Instagram at @authoremilymarie.
