A Riveting Look at the Orphan Train from Historical Novelist
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.
