Orphan Train

The Orphan Train was a new term to me when I picked up this great read by Christina Baker Kline.  You will be transported back to a time in history when many children were on their own, and a large number were moved across the country to find new families when their own family could no longer care for them.  You will meet an orphan train rider as well as a modern day orphan.  I believe you will shed a tear or two, but you will also cheer on the characters in this wonderful story.
