There are many reasons why I love this book, mostly because it was just a fascinating story of a young girls life. Intriguing and heart breaking at the same time. It also had a few mysteries to figure out. Altogether I really loved it and will recommend it. I would have given it five stars altogether but for me there were a few too many F-words when they flashed back to 2011... Although I know that isn't uncharacteristic of a 17 yr. old girl like Molly, it still bothered me. But that's just me.
This book was an unsuspected treat! A beautiful story of enlightening & honesty! The old adage " Don't judge a book by its cover" rings true in this wonder tail of two women from complete different worlds that find they have more in common than them or anyone else would ever expect! The story of Molly & Vivian will take you to a place of unexpected patience & acceptance! Highly recommend you take a ride on the Orphan Train!
I loved listening to this while sewing on a frigid winter day. It was a lovely story. I really liked the parallels between the present and the past. The narrator did a nice job with the different voices. I was sad for it to end, left me wanting more!
I loved the story how it moves from the past to the present weaving the lives together of the young and the old. What they share crosses all age barriers.
Not in a sappy way but to the depths of my heart. The inner strength and ability to preservere in even a child can be awesome. The two orphans involved in the story inspire me to overcome the challenges in my own life at this time.
