Краткое описание

Orphan Train.

Just months away from "aging out" of the child welfare system, and close to being kicked out of her foster home, Molly Ayer takes a community service position to help 91-year-old Vivian Daly clean out her house, in this moving story of friendship and second chances from the author of Bird in Hand and The Way Life Should Be. Vivian has lived a quiet life on Mount Desert Island, Maine, with only her ghosts for company. But in Vivian's attic are vestiges of her own troubled past, when she was put on one of the so-called orphan trains and deposited in Depression-era Minnesota. Slowly, these two women realize they are not so different, and Molly determines to help Vivian unravel the mysteries that have haunted her entire life."A compelling story about loss, adaptability, and courage.... With compassion and delicacy Kline presents a little-known chapter of American history and draws comparisons with the modern-day foster care system."—Library Journal"A long journey from home and the struggle to find it again form the heart of the intertwined stories that make up this moving novel. Foster teen Molly is performing community-service work for elderly widow Vivian, and as they go through Vivian's cluttered attic, they discover that their lives have much in common. When Vivian was a girl, she was taken to a new life on an orphan train. These trains carried children to adoptive families for 75 years, from the mid-nineteenth century to the start of the Great Depression. Novelist Kline brings Vivian's hardscrabble existence in Depression-era Minnesota to stunning life.... As we listen to the two characters talk, we find grace and power in both of these seemingly disparate lives.... Kline illuminates a largely hidden chapter of American history, while portraying the coming-of-age of two resilient young women."—Booklist
