I just finished a great book.
The story is based on a time period between 1854 and 1929 when so called orphan trains ran regularly.
Thousands of abandoned children were shipped from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest.
The story moves between the past and present- telling two women’s stories and their unlikely friendship.
It was a slice of history I was completely unaware of and I was deeply touched by this book.
The human spirit is so strong and inspirational in this book.
You will not be able to put this one down!
