ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

When young, Vivian, an Irish orphaned immigrant in New York City, was put on a train to the Midwest with hundreds of other children whose destinies would be determined by luck and chance. Seventeen-year-old Molly knows that a community-service position will keep her out of juvenile hall. But as Molly helps Vivian, now 91, to sort through her keepsakes and possessions, discovers that she and Vivian aren't as different as they appear. Orphan Train is a powerful tale of upheaval and resilience, second chances, and unexpected friendship.
