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!

At one point the Irish population dropped from 1,500,000 to 600,000 due to the English...they were bitterly hated here in the New World too because of their religion-Catholic.
