As an adult I found the book difficult to put down. I think both young and old would enjoy the adventures of these young orphans. It's one of the best books I've read in a long time.

Format: Paperback
In the spring of 1890, three eight-year-old girls leave the Greystone Orphanage in Boston, MA, and head west on the "Orphan Train." Exuberant Zephronia Victorine Todd (Toddy) is left by her actress mother. Dainty and beautiful Laurel Vestal is placed at Greystone when her loving, gravely ill mother enters a sanitarium. And Kathleen (Kit) Ternan, along with her younger brother and baby sister, is abandoned by her grieving, widowed father. All three girls end up in Meadowridge, a small town somewhere in the "Midwest," after having traveled over the prairie. Toddy joins the household of Octavia Vale, a wealthy, reserved widow who seeks a companion for her invalid granddaughter Helene. Laurel is adopted from the by Dr. and Mrs. Woodward. And Kit is chosen by the Hansens, a farm family who want a girl to assist the work-worn mother of five boys. How will these girls find happiness, identity, and love?

Jane Peart was one of my mother's favorite authors, and is one of my wife's too. So when my wife saw this trilogy at a homeschool camp garage sale, she picked it up. And while it would generally fall into the category of "romance," I decided to read it as well since it is placed in a historical setting and deals with the Orphan Train phenomenon. Actually, the three sections were originally published as three separate books in 1990. Homeward the Seeking Heart is about Toddy, Quest for Lasting Love is about Laurel, and Dreams of a Longing Heart is about Kit. The three were republished as a single book in 1991. There are a few denominational beliefs and practices mentioned with which those associated with churches of Christ would not agree, but the books are generally wholesome with no bad language or immorality.
