    This was a book that I received through inter library loanAfter the author finished her Orphan Train uartet she went on to write uite a few books which I found to be geared to a lower reading level Each book included some historical information about the orphan trains and the time period and it appeared to be the same in both books that I read Each book contained words for spelling or for definitionThis book focused on Will a young boy who lived with his father at a circus His mother had died and his father decided that he needed to move on and would be unable to take Will with him The decision his father made was so sudden that Will had trouble accepting it and hated that people seemed to believe he was an orphan He was adopted by a doctor and his wife who treated him extremely well but other children one boy in particular tended to bully him relentlessly Will continued to hope that he would be able to return to living with is father but when the opportunity presented itself he learned what was truly important to him and what love was really all aboutIt would probably be interesting for a younger reader but after the earlier books in the series this one didn't uite reach their level

    12 year old Will has to be on the orphan train because his father works at a circle and tells Will that he has no talent and will only be a burden Will is adopted by a doctor and his wife and even though Will battles wanting to be with his real father he learns that a family are those around you who love you and care about you A good story

    This is from a spin off series of Nixon's Orphan Train Adventuresand brings back one the original orphan train orphans as a social worker The stories are a little predictable but bring up some interesting historical context and would be interesting to the intended audience
