Her Search for a Place to Call Home 
Leads Her to the Last Place She Ever Expected

For years, Sophie Neumann has been running from the orphanages of 1850s New York City. Tasked with caring for two younger children, she’s determined not to let them be taken from her, and not to abandon them the same way her older sisters did her. But times are growing desperate, and when she falls in with the wrong crowd and witnesses a crime, she realizes fleeing the state is her only option.

Disappearing with her two young charges into a group of orphans heading west by train, Sophie hopes to find safety and a happy life. But when the train stops in Illinois, she faces an agonizing decision as the orphans will be placed in new homes. Afraid she’ll lose them forever, she finds help in a familiar face she never expected to see so far from New York.

Reinhold Weiss has finally purchased his own small farm in Illinois. With mounting debts, a harvest to bring in, and past scars that still haunt him, Reinhold is in no position to give his heart away . . . but can he say no when his long-lost friend shows up on a nearby farm pleading for his help?

    I have a soft spot for orphans and love that homes were found for these children. My husband and I adopted a young girl in the foster care system as well as fostering a couple of boys prior to the adoption. I appreciate this series and can’t wait to read all three.

  7. Natalya C

    What an exciting giveaway! As a young woman adopted from Russia, with 8 internationally-adopted sisters, I love when I come across fiction with stories of orphans, family, and adoption at their heart. Glad to know about this series! James 1:27

    The Orphan Train series sounds like an interesting and unique basis for a series. Historical fiction is one of my favorite genes. I’ve read somewhere that orphan trains rally existed. I couldn’t imagine how scary that scenario would be. I would love to read this whole series.
