Der Zug der Waisen von Christina Baker Kline (c) Goldmann Christina Baker Kline konnte mich mit „Der Zug der Waisen“ mit allen Aspekten vollkommen überzeugen. Vom ersten Satz an war ich an das Buch gefesselt und wurde emotional berührt. Vivian und Molly sind zwei authentische, vielschichtige, liebenswerte und starke Charaktere. Beide durch ein trauriges, aber leider sehr reales Schicksal verbunden. Die Geschichte konnte mich mit jedem Wort bewegen.

Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline

Thanks to @SheReads BookClub I received a copy of Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. Molly, a troubled teen, uncovers an older woman, Vivan's, past while completing her community service hours. But this story is more unique because the background is the real life time in history when orphans were taken on trains to be distributed to new families. . . many times as indentured servants. I could not put this book down!


The last orphan train came to Sulphur Springs, Texas in 1929. The trains stopped in pre-selected towns where people interested in taking a child would assemble.


The Orphan Train Movement 1854-1929. a welfare program that transported children from crowded cities of the United States, such as New York City and Boston, to willing foster homes across the country. The trains relocated an estimated 250,000 orphaned, abandoned, or homeless children. At the time the orphan train movement began, reformers estimated that 30,000 vagrant children were living on the streets of New York City.
