This Month’s Book: Orphan Train….In Three Words

Orphan Train is an Enlightening Historical Fiction based on a little known event in U.S. History. Imagine loading a train full of orphaned and abandoned children from crowded eastern cities and transporting them across the country to be placed in families living in the rural Midwest. This is exactly what The Orphan Train Movement did between 1853 and 1929.


Here is what some of our readers have to say:

Heartwrenching history lesson

Beautifully told story

Loses,resourcefulness, courage

Touching, historic, hopeful
