Publisher's Summary

Orphan Train tells the story of Niamh, a young Irish girl orphaned by a fire in 1920s New York. Like many orphans at that time, she is put on a train heading west.

Niamh struggles to find a home, meeting friends and losing them, as well as losing her innocence and missing out on her childhood. It also tells the story of Molly, a foster-care kid who is all prickly edges and anti-social disorders. She is a modern, Internet-searching woman who has grown old fast in the hands of the system. These two women meet, share their extraordinary stories, and in the process find and define their own sort of family.
