Orphan Train – which tells the true story of the 250,000 orphaned and abandoned children sent on trains from the East Coast to the Midwest as indentured servants – is an award-winning #1 international bestseller. It spent more than 2 years on the New York Times, USA Today, and national Indie bestseller lists, was published in 40 countries, and has been selected by over 100 communities and colleges as a “Big Read” selection. It has sold nearly 4 million copies and has been optioned by a major motion picture studio.

Bestselling author Ann Packer describes Orphan Train as “A lovely novel about the search for family that also happens to illuminate a fascinating and forgotten chapter of American history. Beautiful.”
