Orphan Train Girl

Orphan Train Girl (Young Reader's Edition)

by Christina Baker Kline Year Published: 2018 Historical Fiction

Molly, a foster child, must complete community service, so she volunteers to help Vivian, an elderly woman, clean out her attic. While going through boxes of memorabilia, Vivian tells the story of being an Irish orphan sent out west in the ealry 1900s. I aboslutely loved how this book alternated between the two stories - Molly's in the present and Vivian's in the past - and yet both orphans have a similar experience of searching for a family that will love them.
