It’s been almost a year since Christina Baker Kline’s Orphan Train was first published and what a year it’s been! The book has swept book clubs nationwide and after many weeks on the bestseller list has climbed to the #1 spot and has stayed on top of the list for three weeks straight!
In Orphan Train, Christina Baker Kline reveals a forgotten period of U.S. history when orphans from the big East Coast cities, many of whom were Irish immigrants, were sent by train to uncertain futures in the Midwest. Moving between contemporary Maine and Depression-era Minnesota, Orphan Train is a powerful tale of upheaval and resilience, second chances, and unexpected friendship.
