Together Forever (Orphan Train #2)
Thanks to Tantor Media for suppling me this audio in exchange for a honest review.
This book picks up where With You Always leaves off. I love history and Ms. Hudlund does not disappoint. She focuses on women and includes detailed accounts of their struggles and challenges in the 1800’s. With You Always focused on the organization where the women worked. Together Forever focuses on the children who the organization is working on placing with families. Marianne Neumann, a placing agent, made some bad choices in the last installment with the placing agency and wants to redeem herself. Andrew Brady is also hiding his past and covers well until Marianne exposes him. I love how both interact with each other and the children. Marianne’s soft side shows as she struggles to let go of the children that she has cared for. Orphan Train’s main character was in search of her younger sister. This plight was also present in this installment, but Sophia has yet to be found.
This book can be read as a stand-alone. However, I do suggest that these books are read in order to first understand Marianne’s issues and how she is overcoming those choices. I am really looking forward to the next book in this installment.
