Orphan Train, by Christina Baker Kline is the December selection for Stacey's Book Club. Your book club will love to discuss the dynamic relationship between teenager Molly and Vivian, a ninety year old woman who on the surface is likely to have nothing in common with Molly. As the story unfolds, you realize that everyone has a story to tell, even those residing in large mansions on the outskirts of town. An unlikely pairing, Molly and Vivian are drawn to each other and the connection formed is deeper than ever expected. Rich in detail and epic in scope, Orphan Trainis a powerful novel of upheaval and resilience, of unexpected friendship, and of the secrets we carry that keep us from finding out who we are.
