Summary
"Samantha{8217}s mother has been dead almost a year when the box arrives on her doorstep. In it, she finds recipe cards, keepsakes, letters{8212}relics of her mother Iris{8217}s past. But as Sam sifts through these family treasures, she uncovers evidence that her grandmother, Violet, had a much more difficult childhood then she could have ever imagined. And Sam, a struggling new mother herself, begins to see her own burdens in a completely different light. Moving from the tempered calm of contemporary Madison, Wisconsin to the seedy underbelly of early twentieth century New York, we come face to face with a haunting piece of America{8217}s past: From 1854 to 1929 orphan trains from New York transported 150,000 to 200,000 destitute, orphaned or abandoned children across the country to find homes on farms in the Midwest."--Www.amazon.com
