In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia , disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series. Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title eg. By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number.


  • The Victor Marx Story With God, All Things Are Possible?
  • New Hampshire on Skis (Images of Sports).
  • Se Bang Hien: traduit par André Coulier  (MON PETIT EDITE) (French Edition)?
  • Homeward the Seeking Heart (Orphan Train West for Young Adults, book 2) by Jane Peart;
  • The History of Ecuador (The Greenwood Histories of the Modern Nations)?

If you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel. Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Book series. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place.

Certain details may reveal what people wear or how they are devout church-goers. But sometimes descriptions are too detailed while dramatic events are often glossed over. And the years pass in gaps and clusters. Nevertheless by the time I entered the second novel which was Laurel's turn, I became invested.

And when I reached the novel about Kit, who dreamed of being a writer, I was hooked. Each girl sacrifices what seems to be a promising future. Toddy delays romance in order to care for her invalid friend and to devote her life to care giving.

Orphan Train - Christina Baker Kline // Book Review

Laurel forgoes the promise of a career in music when she's overtaken with the desire to learn about her late parents' circumstances. And Kit ignores a university scholarship in order to obey the wishes of the farm family. Facing disappointment and hardship, each girl clings to inspiration from scripture, which can also serve as inspiration for the young reader without being overly obvious. The main characters are lovable, just as one might love a dear relative.

So it's gratifying that in the end, the trio's highest hopes are fulfilled. Mar 23, Heather rated it liked it. This was a re-read. My copy has the slightly different title of "The Orphan Train Trilogy," but appears to be the same thing. I've never been a huge fan of this book 3 books in one , and I think it's partly because a lot of the story is told in retrospect: the three main characters thinking back to childhood experiences.

I'd rather that we had a larger series with each girl's childhood more fully explored. The stories would be more emotionally powerful if you were remembering an experience with This was a re-read. The stories would be more emotionally powerful if you were remembering an experience with the character instead of being told about it after the fact. For example, in the Anne of Green Gables books, remembering Anne's childhood is powerful because you read all about it in the first book. Some things I appreciated: I enjoyed some of the religious insights. Also, Kit had to be my favorite character as she seemed the most relatable to me.

I found her romance to be fairly satisfying. Feb 14, LeeAnn rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-fiction. I was totally unaware of this period of history. If I remember correctly, it takes place during the Great Depression of the s and depicts the orphan train that transported orphans into homes out west. Because of that time, there are much tighter rules governing adoptions today. The trilogy covers three girls that became friends at the orphanage and are able to stay together until they can be placed at the same town.

Then each story follows them into adulthood, contrasting their lives with ea I was totally unaware of this period of history. Then each story follows them into adulthood, contrasting their lives with each other and with other family members who were not so fortunate. Feb 24, Amy rated it it was amazing. This book is really a trilogy of three books. Each book is about a girl who came west on the orphan train in the 's to find a new family. The three different stories in the trilogy are about three friends, so their lives intertwine throughout each book, but you get a more detailed account of each girl's life in her own "book" in the trilogy.

The stories and characters are each very different and you want the girls to have a happy ending. I have read this trilogy two or three times Jan 17, Rosa Cline rated it really liked it. This is a really neat story of three orphans who became friends on an Orphan Train.

Each book highlights one girl and their adoptive families and lives. They incorporate the friends in each book. It helps the reader understand how the orphan trains were back in the day. But also you find yourself falling in love with these girls and wanting to reach into the book and telling them it will be okay. Jul 29, Sandra rated it really liked it. Great Christian based historical novel following the lives of 3 orphans in Boston in and their Orphan Train ride out west.

The book follows their lives from being adopted up to or and how their lives progressed. Apr 05, Amanda rated it it was amazing Shelves: christian. A re-read from when I was a young girl There is so much heart felt emotion and struggle and so much innocence as well. Laurel is adopted from the by Dr. And Kit is chosen by the Hansens, a farm family who want a girl to assist the work-worn mother of five boys.

How will these girls find happiness, identity, and love? So when my wife saw this trilogy at a homeschool camp garage sale, she picked it up. Actually, the three sections were originally published as three separate books in The three were republished as a single book in There are a few denominational beliefs and practices mentioned with which those associated with churches of Christ would not agree, but the books are generally wholesome with no bad language or immorality. It was not included in the single volume probably because it was not set in Meadowridge.

I believe that all four have also been published together in an omnibus edition, or at least in a set. Apr 10, Gloria Piper rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction , coming-of-age , romance , young-adult , fiction-historical. Here is a collection of three coming-of-age novels. Each deals separately with one of three girls who have formed a lifelong bond of friendship. The bond begins when the three meet in an orphanage. By , the trio who are now eight years old, accompany other orphans on a church-sponsored train that takes them through various towns into the Midwest.

The three manage to stay together until they come to the last town. There, Toddy, the lively pixie who can make others laugh, is placed with a widow Here is a collection of three coming-of-age novels. There, Toddy, the lively pixie who can make others laugh, is placed with a widow who needs a companion for her invalid granddaughter. Laurel, as beautiful as a porcelain doll, is selected by a doctor and his wife to fill the hole left by a deceased daughter of similar age. Shy Kit is placed with a farm family of five sons where she takes on the role of a drudge. As each girl experiences dreams lost and dreams found, we are treated to their perfection of character, talent, and intellect.

These girls and their boyfriends become role models for the young reader. We get a sense of an old-fashioned novel that gently tells of ordinary lives in an ordinary but imperfect society. It took me awhile to get into the story because it is told almost as if written in a letter. Certain details may reveal what people wear or how they are devout church-goers. But sometimes descriptions are too detailed while dramatic events are often glossed over. And the years pass in gaps and clusters.

Nevertheless by the time I entered the second novel which was Laurel's turn, I became invested.
