When a financial crisis in 1850s New York leaves three orphaned sisters nearly destitute, the oldest, Elise Neumann, knows she must take action. She's had experience as a seamstress, and the New York Children's Aid Society has established a special service: placing out seamstresses and trade girls. Even though Elise doesn't want to leave her sisters for a job in Illinois, she realizes this may be their last chance. The son of one of New York City's wealthiest entrepreneurs, Thornton Quincy faces a dilemma. His father is dying, and in order to decide which of his sons will inherit everything, he is requiring them to do two things in six months: build a sustainable town along the Illinois Central Railroad, and get married. Thornton is tired of standing in his twin brother's shadow and is determined to win his father's challenge. He doesn't plan on meeting a feisty young woman on his way west, though.

Until this book, a work of historical fiction, I was unaware of the orphan trains being used to transport women to work in new towns being developed along the railroads. One of the main characters, Elise, is sent to Quincy, Illinois from New York City.

There is much character development in this novel as well as a sigh-inducing romance.

Another awesome book by Jody Hedlund!

Excellent book. Intriguing story line; acceptable characters; evil is vindicated in the end. The closer I got to the end, the more it became a page-turner. I will eagerly await the next installment in this series!

This was a very good book. I can hardly wait to read #0.5 of this Orphan Train series.
I couldn't put the book down. Interesting characters; two twin brothers that always fought for their Fathers attention. You will love the ending!!
