Thanks to @SheReads BookClub I received a copy of Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. Molly, a troubled teen, uncovers an older woman, Vivan's, past while completing her community service hours. But this story is more unique because the background is the real life time in history when orphans were taken on trains to be distributed to new families. . . many times as indentured servants. I could not put this book down!
A 1902 photo , taken in New York, of Agnes Wagner and her four brothers before she put them on an orphan train to Nebraska. William, 14, Agnes, 26, Wesley, 13, Earnest, 10 and Arthur, 12. There is a story here.
