About the Book
Will the mistakes of their past cost them a chance at love?
Determined to find her lost younger sister, Marianne Neumann takes a job as a placing agent with the Children's Aid Society in 1858 New York. She not only hopes to offer children a better life, but prays she'll be able to discover whether Sophie ended up leaving the city on an orphan train so they can finally be reunited.
Andrew Brady, her fellow agent on her first placing-out trip, is a former schoolteacher who has an easy way with children, firm but tender and friendly. Underneath his charm and handsome looks, though, seems to linger a grief that won't go away--and a secret from his past that he keeps hidden.
As the two team up, placing orphans in the small railroad towns of Illinois, they find themselves growing ever closer . . . until a shocking tragedy threatens to upend all their work and change one of their lives forever.
About the Author
Jody Hedlund is an award-winning and bestselling author of inspirational historical romances for both youth and adults.
As a busy mama-writer, she has the wonderful privilege of teaching her crew of 5 children at home. In between grading math papers and giving spelling tests, she occasionally does a load of laundry and washes dishes. When she's not busy being a mama, you can find her in front of her laptop working on another of her page-turning stories.
She loves reading almost as much as she loves writing, especially when it also involves chocolate and coffee.
In Jody Hedlund’s Orphan Train book two, Together Forever, she has written a captivating and touching story. This story shows the hardships of young orphan children that are sent west to be placed with a family that could hopefully take care of them and give them a better life than the one they currently had. It’s about family, friendship and love and the bonds that keep those together. This book is also bound to teach readers a thing or two about this historical time period. And the sweet and swoon worthy romance is an excellent touch to this enthralling historical tale. Hedlund has written a story that readers will thoroughly enjoy and will not want to put down until the end.
