图书描述

The author of Bird in Hand and The Way Life Should Be delivers her most ambitious and powerful novel to date: a captivating story of two very different women who build an unexpected friendship: a 91-year-old woman with a hidden past as an orphan-train rider and the teenage girl whose own troubled adolescence leads her to seek answers to questions no one has ever thought to ask.

Nearly eighteen, Molly Ayer knows she has one last chance. Just months from "aging out" of the child welfare system, and close to being kicked out of her foster home, a community service position helping an elderly woman clean out her home is the only thing keeping her out of juvie and worse.

Vivian Daly has lived a quiet life on the coast of Maine. But in her attic, hidden in trunks, are vestiges of a turbulent past. As she helps Vivian sort through her possessions and memories, Molly discovers that she and Vivian aren't as different as they seem to be. A young Irish immigrant orphaned in New York City, Vivian was put on a train to the Midwest with hundreds of other children whose destinies would be determined by luck and chance.

The closer Molly grows to Vivian, the more she discovers parallels to her own life. A Penobscot Indian, she, too, is an outsider being raised by strangers, and she, too, has unanswered questions about the past. As her emotional barriers begin to crumble, Molly discovers that she has the power to help Vivian find answers to mysteries that have haunted her for her entire life - answers that will ultimately free them both.

Rich in detail and epic in scope, Orphan Train is a powerful novel of upheaval and resilience, of second chances, of unexpected friendship, and of the secrets we carry that keep us from finding out who we are.

如果不是drama课演过里面的小女孩也不会想起去了解美国20世纪初orphan train riders的故事和历史 the mobility, the rootlessness, the yearning for belonging.

时隔八十年,横跨两个时代的离合悲欢,从爱尔兰、印度到美国,全球化下的移民命运,都在作者细腻的笔触下延展开来。虽然觉得开篇的苍凉凄惶,在下半段被赶进度似的叙事节奏影响,但总的来说,架构成熟,文笔优美简洁,很喜欢。

虽然有些套路化(说重点有点俗),不过最后结局那里还是有被感动到。

两位忘年的女性,因为同样的孤儿身份而有了交集和共鸣,两条时间线索在相互穿插、交融。人性的真伪在字里行间迸发,值得一读。

一开始看到《孤儿列车》这个名字,首先进入脑海的就是记忆中几年前读过英的国文豪查尔斯·狄更斯笔下的《雾都孤儿》。虽然这两部作品的主题都是关于孤儿,但是两者却相差甚远。从时代背景上看,《雾都孤儿》发生在19世纪30年代处于工业革命时期的雾都伦敦,《孤儿列车》发生在2...

这本书是怎样呢,一句话概括就是: “孤儿莫莉因为偷学校图书馆的《简爱》被罚去一个同是孤儿的富孀薇薇安家整理阁楼。” 阁楼东西很多,有精装版《绿山墙的安妮》,有雕着蔷薇的茶杯,有旧旧的露指手套,整理到最后,莫莉的男朋友怪莫莉,收拾阁楼的事情一筹莫展,阁楼上该有...
