In 1923, Hank and his brother, Peter, take the Orphan Train to Nebraska, where they become virtual servants on the Olsons' farm. Soon Peter runs away, leaving Hank to bear the Olsons' sharp tongues and violent anger. He is sure the loneliness will kill him. Then he meets Molly McIntire, who, like Hank, trusts animals more than people. With Molly's help, he learns that orphans have rights, too-even if they have to fight for them.

"Heart-wrenching and gripping." (School Library Journal)
