图书描述

The author of Bird in Hand and The Way Life Should Be delivers her most ambitious and powerful novel to date: a captivating story of two very different women who build an unexpected friendship: a 91-year-old woman with a hidden past as an orphan-train rider and the teenage girl whose own troubled adolescence leads her to seek answers to questions no one has ever thought to ask.

Nearly eighteen, Molly Ayer knows she has one last chance. Just months from "aging out" of the child welfare system, and close to being kicked out of her foster home, a community service position helping an elderly woman clean out her home is the only thing keeping her out of juvie and worse.

Vivian Daly has lived a quiet life on the coast of Maine. But in her attic, hidden in trunks, are vestiges of a turbulent past. As she helps Vivian sort through her possessions and memories, Molly discovers that she and Vivian aren't as different as they seem to be. A young Irish immigrant orphaned in New York City, Vivian was put on a train to the Midwest with hundreds of other children whose destinies would be determined by luck and chance.

The closer Molly grows to Vivian, the more she discovers parallels to her own life. A Penobscot Indian, she, too, is an outsider being raised by strangers, and she, too, has unanswered questions about the past. As her emotional barriers begin to crumble, Molly discovers that she has the power to help Vivian find answers to mysteries that have haunted her for her entire life - answers that will ultimately free them both.

Rich in detail and epic in scope, Orphan Train is a powerful novel of upheaval and resilience, of second chances, of unexpected friendship, and of the secrets we carry that keep us from finding out who we are.

觉得女猪脚的悲剧命运到这就结束了吧,但是下一章总是在刷新我的认知。。有一些很喜欢的段落,有一些合上书页唏嘘的段落,有一些觉得历经世事后的淡定。如果有一天我也90岁了,希望我也能拥有一些宁静

一开始看到《孤儿列车》这个名字,首先进入脑海的就是记忆中几年前读过英的国文豪查尔斯·狄更斯笔下的《雾都孤儿》。虽然这两部作品的主题都是关于孤儿,但是两者却相差甚远。从时代背景上看,《雾都孤儿》发生在19世纪30年代处于工业革命时期的雾都伦敦,《孤儿列车》发生在2...
