Teenager Molly is about to age out of foster care, but lands in trouble when the school librarian catches her stealing Jane Eyre from the library. The community service her boyfriend helps her arrange with the 90-some-year-old Vivian, to clean out years of belongings in the attic of the house where his mother also works, turns into life-changing experiences for both women. This heartfelt historical novel, partly told from a Minnesota setting, gives an account of the experience of one little Irish girl put on an Orphan Train. Thousands of children given up to strangers hundreds of miles from any familiar territory are an American experience worth knowing. No wonder there’s a long list of people wanting to read this!
