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.

From the Back Cover:

Between 1854 and 1929, so-called orphan trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by pure luck. Would they be adopted by a kind and loving family, or would they face a childhood and adolescence of hard labor and servitude?

As a young Irish immigrant, Vivian Daly was one such child, sent by rail from New York City to an uncertain future a world away. Returning east later in life, Vivian leads a quiet, peaceful existence on the coast of Maine, the memories of her upbringing rendered a hazy blur. But in her attic, hidden in trunks, are vestiges of a turbulent past.

Seventeen-year-old Molly Ayer knows that a community-service position helping an elderly widow clean out her attic is the only thing keeping her out of juvenile hall. But as Molly helps Vivian sort through her keepsakes and possessions, she discovers that she and Vivian aren't as different as they appear. A Penobscot Indian who has spent her youth in and out of foster homes, Molly is also an outsider being raised by strangers, and she, too, has unanswered questions about the past.

Moving between contemporary Maine and Depression-era Minnesota, Orphan Train is a powerful tale of upheaval and resilience, second chances, and unexpected friendship.
