ORPHAN TRAIN

ORPHAN TRAIN

Christina Baker Kline
Read by Jessica Almasy, Suzanne Toren

Kline's vibrant, sophisticated language comes alive with the sparkling talents of narrators Jessica Almasy and Suzanne Toren. Their finely paced, enthusiastic portrayals of the charming main characters quickly capture the listener. Molly and Vivian have decades separating their ages, but their lives become intertwined when Molly, a feisty teenager, has to perform community service for a minor offense. The two form a bond strengthened by parallel experiences as Vivian allows Molly into her inner sanctum to complete the required hours. At the novel's center are Vivian's captivating stories of her orphan train experiences. The portraits of Molly's and Vivian's harsh beginnings offer poignant insights into these characters and the foster care systems of the past and present. M.N.T.
