"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Gr 3-5-In September, 1904, five orphans are put on a train in New York City bound for Seguin, Texas, where they are to start new lives with new families. The four boys and one girl travel with two nuns. On arrival, after initial doubts of acceptance, the children are warmly received by the awaiting parents. Adjustment to their unaccustomed surroundings is pretty easy and quick. Life goes on as usual, with some mishaps including a wild chase by a bull and a mill fire. The writing is stilted and dull without any intrigue or feeling. The story progresses as a list of events. Characters are flat and one dimensional, and there is little to make readers interested in the book's outcome. Joan Lowery Nixon's ``The Orphan Train Quartet'' (Bantam) gives a better view of this part of America's history and is told with suspense, drama, and emotion.-Rita Soltan, Baldwin Public Library, Birmingham, MI
