A review by amdeboer
Orphan Train, by Christina Baker Kline


This would have gotten 5 stars if it wasn't all so predictable. Don't get me wrong, I greatly enjoyed the story. It was an easy read. But from the very beginning, I saw all of the major "twists" coming a mile away. As a lover of suspense novels, that was kind of annoying.

But it's a great novel that I would recommend to anyone. It didn't drag on, and it was clear and concise even though it dealt with duel narrators in two different time periods. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed the bits of history thrown in there, I never even knew there was such a thing as an orphan train before I stumbled upon this book. It was just a nice story that I think most people would enjoy.
