“Christina Baker Kline’s #1 New York Times bestselling novel entitled Orphan Train is set between the years 1854 and 1929. During this time, the so-called orphan trains regularly ran from the cities along the East Coast going to the farmlands of the Midwest. These trains carried thousands of abandoned children. Their fates would then be determined by pure luck.

Vivian Daly was such a child. She was a young Irish immigrant who was sent by rail from New York City to an uncertain future one train ride away. When she returned east later in her life, Vivian led a quiet and peaceful existence in her residence on the coast of Maine. The memories of her childhood were only a hazy blur but hidden in the trunks in her attic were memories of her turbulent past. Orphan Train is a powerful novel that reveals the story of upheaval and resilience. Vivan's story moves between Minnesota during the Depression-era and contemporary Maine. This is a novel of second chances and unexpected friendship.”
