Since their mama died and their pa left, Ethan, Alice, Simon, and Will Cooper have not known much of a home. But now that the orphan train has taken them to Mr. and Mrs. Rush in Nebraska, their dreams of home may become a reality. The kids discover that life on a farm is full of challenges. Ethan learns how to drive a plow, watch for snakes, and deal with bullies at the country school. Alice learns to slop the hogs and live with a big sister who isn’t exactly welcoming. Will seems to be the only one of the four that their new mother likes. And Simon disappears—again. The third book in the Beyond the Orphan Train series, Prairie Homestead is an adventure in new beginnings and lasting faith.

Wow, this was a very good family story. In this third book of the series, 4 orphan train siblings have found their home. Pretty soon, they find out their new family is moving from Nebraska to build a home in South Dakota. But, will everything go as planned? Will a happy & content life resume after all? I just couldn't wait to finish the book. Now I have high expectations for the last book in the series, to see just how this journey ends.
