Book Review: Orphan Train by Christina Baker Klein

Orphan TrainOrphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this at the suggestion of another blogger, and it piqued my interest when I was trying to figure out which books I wanted to get for my free Audible trial.
The two parallel storylines were both fairy interesting, but I much preferred the historic one of Vivian, to Molly, who was basically used for modern political propaganda. Vivian's story was epic, tragic, and extremely beautiful. She had quiet the journey from Ireland to New York to Minnesota, and then Maine.
As this was on Audible, it was interesting to listen to the narrator, switch from an American teenage accent to an Irish Accent, as well as the accent of an old woman who's lost her Irish accent.
For the most part, I did enjoy this book, especially once Vivian was settled, and finding herself falling in love. I love love stories, what can I say? This was a good read for a drive, and I HIGHLY recommend Audible. ;-)
