Editorial reviews (2 reviews)

The Orphanmaster is a fascinating novel about the Dutch colony in early America. Well researched, the author has truly captured the essence of the times with all its hardships, morals, and daily living.

Overall The Orphanmaster is worth a read for the good parts, but the novel could have been so much more with a different balance.
