Young Dane Weston's dream is to become a doctor. But it will take more than just determination to realize his goal, once his family is murdered and he ends up in a colony of street waifs begging for food. Then he ends up mistaken for a murderer himself and sentenced to life in prison. Now what will become of his friendship with the pretty orphan girl, Tharyn, who wanted to enter the medical profession herself? Does she feel he is anything more than a big brother to her? And will she ever write him again?THE ORPHAN TRAINS TRILOGY : BOOK THREE Immigrants flood into New York City by the thousands, the squalid streets home to thirty thousand destitute, vagrant children. Moved with compassion for their plight, seminarian Charles Loring Brace founds the Children’s Aid Society in 1853 and, for the next seven decades, transports trainloads of orphans to farms and ranches on the American frontier. Thrust into a vast, unknown territory, what will become of them? Where will the wind blow next? New York City, 1871. Fourteen-year-old Dane Weston comes home to an empty apartment. A gang of teenage boys has murdered his family, shattering his dream of becoming a doctor. Driven to the streets with other homeless waifs, Dane’s new occupation is begging for food. Worse things await--misunderstandings, imprisonment, and separation from his pretty orphan friend, Tharyn. The gentle breezes of the country seem worlds away, but still they sighthe poor boy’s name. . .From the Trade Paperback edition.
