About The Book
Lucy, Harold, and David have recently become orphans and have no family left, no one to take care of them. They are living on the streets, stealing what they need to survive, like thousands of other unfortunate kids in the early 1900s.
Then they get lucky. Lucy and her little brothers are welcomed into an orphanage where they get clean clothes and warm meals. But this orphanage sends groups of children to the Midwest on orphan trains. They are paraded in front of farmers who pick and choose kids they want to take home-and David is taken at one of the first stops, without Lucy or Harold.
Verla Kay’s celebrated verse has been called “lyrical” and “rollicking” and Ken Stark’s warm, poignant paintings have been described as “as sun-dappled as a happy memory.” Together, they make the plight of these orphans both heartbreaking and hopeful.
