Orphan Train

April 18

Young Vivian is one of many to board the orphan trains heading west to an uncertain future. Now 91, Vivian meets 17-year-old Molly and though decades apart in age, they find a common bond in their turbulent childhoods. From turn of the century Ireland and New York City to the Midwest and onto contemporary Maine, author Christina Baker Kline's moving novel highlights a period of history largely forgotten.
