Publisher's Summary

CBA best-selling author Kim Vogel Sawyer - ACF Book of the Year winner for Waiting for Summer's Return - delivers enthralling, historically rich tales whose unforgettable characters resonate with poignant intensity and compelling authenticity.

After a New York tenement fire kills their immigrant parents in 1886, Maelle, Mattie, and Molly Gallagher soon find themselves aboard a crowded orphan train - hoping a family will adopt them in Missouri. Despite eight-year-old Maelle's best efforts to keep the young survivors together, they must split up. A traveling photographer adopts her, a grieving family takes Mattie, and a wealthy couple claims Molly. Keeping her parents' ribbon-wrapped love letters, Maelle entrusts the fading family picture to Mattie and the well-worn family Bible to Molly. And, in a tearful parting, Maelle vows to one day find her younger siblings.

    "Almost Didn't Finish"

    I found the narrator's voice extremely irritating. If it wasn't for the story line, I wouldn't have finished. The story is a very touching one. However, the author left you up in the air at the end. I dislike this about an author. Another irritating thing, is the story is broke into two parts - when the send part started, it automatically fast forwarded past the beginning of the second part. I had to rewind it to the beginning of the second part to get to the beginning of it.

    "Excellent!"

    A trip to the past through the eyes of Irish immigrants. Love, loss, and trials grab the heart and make this book unforgettable.
