By Christina Baker Kline
Between 1859 and 1929, “orphan trains” ran from the East Coast of the United States to the Midwest, carrying abandoned children for adoption and sometimes hard labor. This fictional account tells the story of Vivian, an Irish immigrant, and Molly, an outsider raised by strangers. It is a powerful tale of upheaval and resilience, second chances, and unexpected friendship.
