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

用略带纪实的行文,把真实的历史记录下来,把那些个体的文化流传下来,并能得到大众的认可

是历史,是现实。遗弃、虐待、歧视、恐惧,和绝望后的重生,因为我的工作,让我更看懂这本书。

评分

两个人物的叙述穿插而行,这似乎是最近的流行。喜欢Molly,和vivian同为孤儿,但她和vivian更有着相同的品质,所以才会成为忘年交吧。更喜欢1930's的这条线索,喜欢vivian的坚韧,对于生活的认真,通过她也第一次了解到美国历史上有这么一列火车。当看到vivian和duthy相逢时,感慨万千,但也似乎预感到了两人最后的分离,最终duthy死于战场。。。结局停留在vivian见女儿这里,很温暖

评分

如果不是drama课演过里面的小女孩也不会想起去了解美国20世纪初orphan train riders的故事和历史 the mobility, the rootlessness, the yearning for belonging.
