Orphan Train
Reviewed by- linda (2017/01/06, 08:29 PM)
This book opens the discussion on a little know practice of the mid 19th century. Many orphaned children were packed into trains and transported to the mid west; where they were put on display for the locals to adopt. Sadly, families needing workers for their farm took in these children. The story is set in both present day and the early to mid 1900s and alternates between Vivian's story of being a passenger on the Orphan Train and Molly's story, a troubled teen currently in a foster home. This is a story of resilience and hope which shows the healing powers of a little TLC. Its heartwarming to watch the beautiful bond develop between Vivian Molly as they share their common experience of being an Orphan. Recommend.Back.
