I was grocery shopping a couple of days ago at Kroger’ s and do you ever stroll by the book and magazine stand or isle and start browsing through it and then you see a fascinating title that,jumps out at and at that very moment it appeals and you can’t resist not snatching it up and having to have this lovely book that you know is going to draw you in from the first page. And this book “The Orphan Train” did just that for me. I’ve wanted to read this book since I can’t remember when and since its the type of book I know I’ll want on my bookshelf For a long time to come yes, I purchased it but it was a great deal I couldn’t pass it up.
It reads inside the cover that between 1854 – 1929, so- called orphan trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children’s who’s fates would be determined by pure luck. Would they be adopted by a kind and loving family or they face a childhood and adolescents of hard labor and solitude?
As a young Irish immigrant, Vivian Daly was one such child, sent by a rail from New York City to an uncertain future a world away. Returning East later in life, Vivian leads a quiet, peaceful existence on the coast of Maine, the memories of her upbringing rendered by a hazy blue. But in her attic, hidden in trunks are vestiges, of a turbulent past. And then 17 year old Molly Auer, knows that s community service position helping an elderly widow clean out her attic is the only thing keeping her out of juvenile hall. But as Molly helps Vivian sort through her keepsakes and possessions, she discovers that she and Vivian aren’t as different as they appear. Molly is a a Penobscot Indian who has spent her youth in and out of foster homes. Molly is also an outsider being raised by strangers, and she, too, unseeded questions. Moving between contemporary Maine and depression-era Minnesota, it will be a powerful tail of upheaval and resonance, second chances, and unexpected friendship.
I known this is going to be a very satisfying read. This is the type of novel I will be able to read in one sitting if only I had the time.
I also picked up Two by Two – By Nicholas Sparks and he is a divine writer if I do say so myself. All I’m going to give away is it states:The reigning champ of contmeporary/family/drama/Love story. I think it will be brilliant. It involves Russ, his daughter London and I just don’t want to give to much away! I have 2 great read for this Sunday night but I believe “Orphan Train” may be my first choice.
I love anything Christian novel wise or beneficial to my life but I love and enjoy novels as such as these once in a while to!
I’ve read every novel.Nocholas Sparks has ever written and I’ve never had a complaint one about any of them. Who doesn’t love to enjoy a good juicy family drama book like these top choices? I do and I will.
I got my grocery shopping done and finished yesterday we are all stocked uomafyer they finally got out EBT straightened out amd it has taken them almost 2 months and we were just about down to can veggies. I can laugh about it now or giggle because we made it through so always remember GOD IS FAITHFUL and always comes through on time. His not ours but I can live with that for we are saved by his GRACE after all.
We’ll be having Organic chicken for dinner, with potatoes of some type. Chipotle maybe (mashed) and a veggie of course. It’s been a fairly good productive day!, and my husband finally repaired my dishwasher!,Yay and Yay again! We’re in the country and had a critter running around and he somehow caused or chewedna small hole which caused a leak but I’m back in business. I really didn’t mind at all washing dishes in the sink but, In was using so much more water bybwashing them by hand and our dear water bill showed it.
