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.
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.
