to Niameh s town and Niameh s is now renamed Vivian by her latest foster parents years ago How their stories entwine makes for a fascinating read It is heartening to watch their unlikely friendship a 90 year old lady and a 17 year young girl grow Vivian Niameh knows what Molly is going through, and together they help one another out.The only thing I did not like about the story was Niameh s ancestral baggage mother has many children, mother is sickly, dad is an Irish drunk Can t we getoriginality But I would still recommend this book This was a part of American history that I had never heard of Trains that ran from the east coast full of orphan children to be given to families across the country beetween 1854 and 1929 Some were given to truly good people wanting a child, while other children ended up in families who were looking for free labor The author does a great job telling the story of these orphan trains through the lives of two women, Molly and Vivian who intertwine the past and present. an excellent book I very much enjoyed this book It was enlightening to me and sparked my interest to study this subject a bitThe ending was satisfying and a bit surprising. |Free ☪

the story, and unbelievably, I didn t totally connect with the main character, Niamh when she was an adult Her telling of the story when she was a child never felt like it was told from a kid s point of view though, but at least there was some emotion in her voice I liked the ending, but later on, thinking about this story, wondered how in I don t know how many pages, the main character doesn t get along with a single woman All the women in the story are evil or indifferent to Niamh That really did bug me, a lot Loved this book 1920 s 30 s..beautiful descriptive reading.I love to read
