Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
By chance I brought this book for $1.99 (or less?)a while back and now it has become my GR monthly book club read as well as my work one. I read it super fast and really enjoyed it. It was simple and yet endearing. I never knew of such trains and it is heartbreaking to know that it had exsisted for so many years. I also really enjoyed that it started out on a street (Elizabeth) where I currently live. I, of course, googled it and found so many cool images (one I found later that was in the book at the end).
I highly recommend this book because not only is it an emotional read but it is a great historical insight.
