📢 ANNOUNCING OUR APRIL BOOK CLUB PICK: "ORPHAN TRAIN" by Christina Baker Kline.
I've heard from many of my friends that this book is an emotional read and to prepare myself for lots of FEELS. Sometimes I have a hard time picking up a book that I know is going to bring me face to face with grief, disbelief, anger or sadness but almost 90% of the time after I've finished reading and wiped away the tears, I'm so grateful I read it. These are the types of books that stay with you and mold your perspective. I'm excited to start reading Orphan Train and id love to hear if you've read it!

SYNOPSIS: "When Vivian was a girl, she was taken to a new life on an orphan train. These trains carried children to adoptive families for 75 years, from the mid-nineteenth century to the start of the Great Depression. Novelist Kline (Bird in Hand, 2009) brings Vivian’s hardscrabble existence in Depression-era Minnesota to stunning life. Molly’s present-day story in Maine seems to pale in comparison, but as we listen to the two characters talk, we find grace and power in both of these seemingly disparate lives. Although the girls are vulnerable, left to the whims of strangers, they show courage and resourcefulness."
