The book moved just like a train slow and dreamy you could take your time and follow the rhythm of the story line. Then it comes speeding to a end to fast. Two ladies lives pass in a similar way but with a surprise at the end. I would recommend this book.
It's a light easy read, based on an interesting bit of American history. The characters and plot twists were reasonably believable and the story moved quickly enough to keep me interested.
I loved the story, but the narrator was a rapid reader so rapid in fact, I slowed the speed to .75. Really, I enjoyed her voice inflections for each character in the slower speed, but at times it was annoying.
I really enjoyed the story. The way it's laid out going between current times and past times is fun. It's interesting as it describes a real event though using fictional people. My only complaint is the abrupt end.
orphan train is fantastic. the girls narrating did a fantastic job. such a great story that is moving and captivating. explores human nature, what family really is and the strength everyone has inside them. definitely listen/read this one
