Good Reads Review Orphan Train Belle

Orphan Train Belle Review

Kathy Heare Watts rated it 5 of 5 stars

What an enjoyable short story of hope, love and happiness. Maribelle was forced to leave the orphanage because she turned eighteen. She is picked to assist with twenty-four adoptable children traveling westward on the orphan train, but at the end, she would be returned to Boston and the unknown. The town blacksmith, Dan, shows up and the last child has already been adopted, but he talks Maribelle into coming home with him, even asking if he needed to adopt her to care for Connie. The story is simplistic and comical in the assumptions that Belle makes about the relationship between Dan and Connie. Dan thanks the Lord for sending Belle and Belle thanks the Lord for not having to return to Boston. The misunderstanding is resolved and ends with a HEA ending. It’s a reminder to not assume about a situation and to remember that God is always in control. Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
