Orphan Train is a gripping story of friendship and second chances from Christina Baker Kline, author ofBird in Hand and The Way Life Should Be.

Penobscot Indian Molly Ayer is close to “aging out” out of the foster care system. A community service position helping an elderly woman clean out her home is the only thing keeping Molly out of juvie and worse...

As she helps Vivian sort through her possessions and memories, Molly learns that she and Vivian aren’t as different as they seem to be. A young Irish immigrant orphaned in New York City, Vivian was put on a train to the Midwest with hundreds of other children whose destinies would be determined by luck and chance.

Molly discovers that she has the power to help Vivian find answers to mysteries that have haunted her for her entire life – answers that will ultimately free them both.

Rich in detail and epic in scope, Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline is a powerful novel of upheaval and resilience, of unexpected friendship, and of the secrets we carry that keep us from finding out who we are.

  • Incredible story

    I never knew the story of the Orphan Train. It is a time in history 1870 - 1920 that has not been written about. The parallel stories of the two women made it incredibly engaging as well as current.

  • Excellent historical fiction book!

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Orphan Train. The combination of a story from the past with a story from the present was very interesting. I especially liked learning about the orphan trains that brought children who had no parents out west years ago. I highly recommend this easy reading and yet compelling book.
