Synopsis: FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Deeply unhappy about her family's separation because of poverty, Megan gradually finds contentment and purpose in her new home on the Kansas prairie with a kind and loving adopted family.

From the Publisher: The Orphan Train Quartet follows the story of the six Kelly children, whose widowed mother has sent them west from New York City in 1856 because she realizes she can't give them the life they deserve.

Shy Megan Kelly truly believes she is to blame for her family's misfortune. She'll never forget the day a gypsy grabbed her palm and read it, announcing that Megan was a "bad-luck penny" who would always bring trouble to those around her.

Megan is happy when a loving young couple living in the rugged Kansas territory adopt her. But during the first trying months, a blizzard, a pack of prairie wolves, and armed fugitive are just some of the disasters the family must face. Megan is certain the gypsy's curse is real. With the help of her new family, can Megan find a way to overcome her fear and superstition?
