Bunting puts all of us on a train to somewhere, but it’s hard to finish with a dry eye. Bunting brings to life the tales of an orphanage train through the stories of Marianne who is expecting to see her mother waiting for her at any stop. By the end you’ll sure to have some watery eyes, that is if you haven’t already cried earlier in it. Great book for families especially those with adopted children, and great conversation piece.
