review 1: Having coincidentally just finished The Chaperone, which happens to be about the same subject matter, I could not help but compare the two. I found this book a bit undeveloped...the characters and story lines for each one just seemed to be lacking. In fact, when I got to the last page, I was left with a sense of "that's it?". It was as if the author was given a word limit and hadn't thought the story out so had to wrap it up in 2 pages. Lots of unanswered questions...

We the readers know that, but the next two generations of women in the family will have to find that out: Violet's daughter, Iris, a divorcee who is oddly at peace though dying of cancer, and her daugher Samantha, a potter and anxious new mother herself. A few of the plotlines didn't really add up for me, but I enjoyed spending time with these characters. less

This was a fascinating read about the orphan trains and several generations in a family of women.
Enjoyed this book, but found the jumping around from perspective to perspective a bit confusing.
Quick read, good story, if a little dull.
