Before the accident Nathaniel's life seemed pretty good. His help around the farm made his father proud. But now, with a busted leg, Nathaniel can't do farmwork anymore, so his father adopts another son through the Orphan Train. Feeling replaced and useless, Nathaniel attends school for the first time. Meanwhile, sturdy and strong John is able to do the work that earns Pa's attention.

But the truth is, John Worth has his own set of troubles. He is treated more like a servant than a son. Kept awake at night by nightmares of his family's death, he remembers having a pa who took pride in him. But now he has no one, until a community battle and a special book reveal a potential friend -- and a chance for understanding.

But now, with a busted leg, Nathaniel can't do farmwork anymore, so his father adopts another son through the Orphan Train. Feeling replaced and useless, Nathaniel attends school for the first time. Meanwhile, sturdy and strong John is able to do the work that earns Pa's attention. But the truth is, John Worth has his own set of troubles. He is treated more like a servant than a son.

But now he has no one, until a community battle and a special book reveal a potential friend -- and a chance for understanding. Nathaniel is injured, so his father brings home a boy named John Worth from the Orphan Train to help on the farm. While Nathaniel feels jealous of Worth, who has taken his place and garnered his father's attention, Worth mourns his family and his dream of an education.
