Orphan Train | #BooksWeRecommend


What really knocks me out is a book that could free me from me. A book that could make me exhausted and yearning for life that I wanted to live, and at the same time could leave me with so many experience and emotions as if I live several lives with all its shades and turns.

"A Goodreads Choice Nominee for Fiction, Orphan Train weaves together two narratives: that of 17-year-old Molly and that of 91-year-old Vivien Daly. As part of her community service, Molly must clear out a lifetime's worth of junk from Vivien's attic. However, what she finds as she slowly clears out the clutter is something she didn't expect: a friend. Vivien and Molly, despite the generational differences, find in each other kindred spirits, both emotionally guarded as a result of loss, heartbreak, and isolation. As they spend time together and learn more about each other, the barriers they've built begin to crumble. Check out this in-depth review for a detailed look at the Orphan Train, from the plot and characters to Christina Baker Kline's writing style.—by Expert Book Reviews


“I learned long ago that loss is not only probable but inevitable. I know what it means to lose everything, to let go of one life and find another. And now I feel, with a strange, deep certainty, that it must be my lot in life to be taught that lesson over and over again.”
― Christina Baker Kline
