A poorly-written story that seems to have been written only to swing along on the popularity of "Orphan Train" (a similar cover and title, and I would hope, a much better book) and the popularity of World War II stories in general, with a nod to the circus backdrop of the also-popular "Water For Elephants".
There's barely any mention of the particular orphan in this story; it seems more like a heartwarming and handy lure to have an orphan kicking around, just to get people to read the story.
The last few pages are a comically desperate attempt to wrap everything up.
