Train to Somewhere by Eve Bunting, Ronald Himler, Ronald Himler

Marianne, heading west with fourteen other children on an Orphan Train, is sure her mother will show up at one of the stations along the way. When her mother left Marianne at the orphanage, hadn't she promised she'd come for her after making a new life in the West? Stop after stop goes by, and there's no sign of her mother in the crowds that come to look over the children. No one shows any interest in adopting shy, plain Marianne, either. But that's all right: She has to be free for her mother to claim her. Then the train pulls into its final stop, a town called Somewhere . . .

I decided to order this book after reading other children's books by Eve Bunting. I am so glad that I did. This book is excellent. It tells about a girl going on the Orphan Train. Most of the children get chosen early until it is just the girl and the woman that works for the orphanage. It is a very touching story. It would be a great conversation starter to use in the classroom while learning about the time period. I am a studying to be a Elementary school teacher and I think that this is an excellent addition to my personal library.
