This book was a really good book if you like historical fiction. The book relates to the orphan train like no other. It tells how the children felt and what kinds of insecurities they may have had about finding new homes. It follows 2 girls through childhood to discover how their lives turned out after being adopted in the same town. A great book to read anytime!
