Introducing... Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
Introducing books through the first paragraph or so...
I believe in ghosts. They're the ones who haunt us, the ones who have left us behind. Many times in my life I have felt them around me, observing, witnessing, when no one in the living world knew or cared what happened.
I am ninety-one years old, and almost everyone who was once in my life is now a ghost. -- Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
