our tale Mileta was left at an orphanage by her mother when she was a young girl Her mother was very ill, but Mileta did not understand the circumstances She was both terrified and awed by the asylum as the children called it She meets Mary and they become fast friends She meets many other children, all of whom have been abandoned by their parent or parents Several years later some of the children are taken to a train for a ride to Detroit It is about 1924 On the way, Mileta meets a boy by the name of Tobias who later figures largely in the story This book is the story of Mileta, who becomes Cindy s grandmother Mildred It is both a tragic and heartwarming tale of love, loss, fear and triumph This is the story of the Orphan Trains and the fact that those who rode them were reluctant to speak of them The Orphan Trains really did happen It is Mileta Mildred s story.This book is beautifully written and speaks mainly of the human will to survive through all manner of tragedy It is well written and plotted It goes back and forth between the present and begins in the early 1920 s with Mileta s story I was entranced, almost unable to put it down at bedtime I truly enjoyed this little

atrocious period of American historyand I always love a solid historical fiction that inspires me to do some research of my own This notion was initially mind blowing to me I assumed the premise was fabricated No such cruelty or insensitivity to orphaned children should be true, right I guess it makes sense however, since our government can be completely twisted at times That being said, this is a beautifully executed story within a story A mother daughter duo begins reading a hidden family set of journals which is juicy enough to begin withThen add in all the secrets held by the notebooks which made the book quite difficult to stop reading Read it when it can be done all in one sitting if possible There were moments of despair and moments of joy fewer of these Both the present day and historical characters were wonderfully real This author s craft is impeccable I was really hoping to have a glimpse of Mildred s husband s journalsso my fingers are crossed that his will be the next
