Penobscot Indian Molly Ayer is close to 'aging out' out of the foster care system. A community service position helping an elderly woman clean out her home is the only thing keeping Molly out of juvie and worse.

Ebook that I borrowed from the county library. Wonderful historical novel about what happened to the children moved from New York to the midwest on the Orphan Trains. ( )
  MrDickie | Jun 17, 2021 |
What a satisfying read this book is.
When 17 year old foster child, Molly, is given community service hours to complete, for attempting to steal a tired copy of Jane Eyre from the library, it is only her boyfriend Jack who convinces her to accept the punishment, as the alternative is Juvenile Hall. Jack even persuades his mother to organize the fifty hours with her employer, a 91 year old woman, who requires assistance cleaning out her attic of memorabilia.
An unexpected friendship develops between Vivian and Molly as they delve into Vivian's past and her history as a child of the orphan train is revealed. The two friends realise they have much in common and the story builds to a satisfying conclusion. I felt both informed and entertained by these two very likable characters. ( )

In 2011, teenaged orphan/foster “child” Molly is in trouble and has to do some community service. Her boyfriend’s mom works for a rich old lady and gets her an interview with the lady to help her sort out her attic as her community service. While helping Vivian, Molly learns more about Vivian’s life as an orphan/foster child – starting in the 1920s – and as she grew up. Vivian started life in Ireland as Niamh (pronounced Neev), and came to New York City with her family. It wasn’t long before she was on her own and was sent on a train heading west with other orphans. This is a train that brought orphans to families who “wanted” them (or wanted free labour), and she was shuffled around a bit more.

I really liked this. I thought Vivian’s story was more interesting than Molly’s, though I did like the friendship that developed between them. I did know about these trains, as I’m sure I’ve read another book on the topic. (Looked it up, similar situation with the British Home Children who were sent to Canada…) My edition of the book has an author’s note, reading guide, etc, which included some photos of some of the real “orphan train” children.

The novel was often heartbreaking, as you expect with this story based on true events from one of the black marks of our country's history. I found it especially poignant in a personal way because my grandfather was one of the "Home Children" who were sent from England to Canada under similar circumstances of the Orphan Train children. So much of it was sad, but it was also permeated with examples of resilience and hope. I really admired the strength of Niamh/Dorothy/Vivian and to a lesser extent the character of Molly. I really had a hard time understanding one of the decisions that Vivian made in particular when she was a woman, yes, I had a hard time accepting her choice. Overall, it was a good book and on plenty of occasions I didn't want to put it down. ( )

This is the kind of book I enjoy, where you can lose yourself in the story. While reading this story I felt as if I was there I could smell the squirrel cooking and feel the cold air coming through the cracks in the wall, the sound of the train on the track. The one weakness in the book might be the ending, which seems a little hurried and cliche. Then again maybe it was I who was in a hurry to find out how it ended. If you like historical novels or fictional biographies that I would recommend this book to you. ( )

In portaging from one river to another, Wabanakis had to carry their canoes and all other possessions. Everyone knew the value of traveling light and understood that it required leaving some things behind. Nothing encumbered movement more than fear, which was often the most difficult burden to surrender.

"...you can't find peace until you find all the pieces."
– I learned long ago that loss is not only probable but inevitable. I know what it means to lose everything, to let go of one life and find another. And now I feel, with a strange, deep certainty, that it must be my lot in life to be taught that lesson over and over again.
Her hand flutters to her clavicle, to the silver chain around her neck, the Claddagh charm – those tiny hands clasping a crowned heart: love, loyalty, friendship – a never-ending path that leads away from home and circles back.
