    1. Orphan Train trilogyAL and Joanna Lacy are authors of this, the third book in the orphan train trilogy. Whispers in the Wind details the tragic events that leave children orphaned with nowhere to go except the alleys of NYC, as well as their triumphs in life later on. Good read.

    2. Al and Joanna Lacy write wonderful historical novels. This is book 3 from a trilogy; even though I haven't read the prior 2 books, I love the series already. Set in Manhattan, New York during the late 1870s, it is a snapshot picture of the plight of orphans on the streets. The book doesn't dwell on the most horrible situations of the street life - it does pick up a string of hope for a small group of orphans and follows through on their lives. I enjoyed the book and look forward to the sequel in [...]

    3. Book 3 in the Orphan Train Trilogy. This book was a little different than the first two. The story focused more on the orphans and their lives on the streets where the first two focused more on the lives of the orphans as they boarded the train and found new families. Book 3 is mostly about a boy named Dane whose family is murdered and he is forced to the streets. Along the way he meets some wonderful people, finds a new faith and puts that faith to a test. This book is a great lead in to anothe [...]

    4. Not quite as good as the prior two. A bit cheesy and cliche in parts but overall an awesome read! I love this historical period and the not as well known story about the Orphan Trains started by Charles Loring Brace. I was a bit disappointing that the book was finished until I read the authors note: "The story continues in the author's next trilogy, 'Frontier Docter'" YUS!

    5. This was my favorite of the Al Lacy Orphan Trains Series. There are messages of caring for others, holding out hope when the future looks bleak and acknowledging that all things happen because a loving God allowed it. I pre-read this for my son's unit study on American history. It is also good as a read aloud.

    6. Very good book for young adults that would like to learn about the living conditions during the turn of the 19th century. The harsh conditions in which the orphans of New York had to endure are very moving. I must say that I am not a religous person, but the christian values that the founders of the Children's Aid Society showed in trying to help the orphans is inspiring.

    7. Least favorite of the series, although I still enjoyed parts of it. One thing to clear up: Girls were not called girlfriends in the 1800s. I liked when all the orphan children were trying to live it out on the streets. I still recommend this book series to people, but I wouldn't say they are my favorite books in the world. They are nice and have good parts to thembut somewhat lacking.

    8. This is a amazing book! It's a real page turner and an easy read. It has a sad, happy and surprising plot. I recommend this as a read for a vacation or just to pass time. It really teaches you to value life and family. You should really read this book!

    9. Again, this was read over three years ago, so I don't remember much from it other than wanting to read more about what happened to orphans Dane and Tharyn, but the library didn't have "The Frontier Doctor" books that followed

    10. I've liked everything I've read written by these authors, but the Orphan train series was my all time favorite of the Lacy's. An interesting look at a sad time in history.

    11. I read this trilogy maybe two years ago. I remember it as being really sentimental (maybe a bit too much so), but I enjoyed the series over all.

    12. This one was GREAT! like all of the others.I love this little series and I want to read themall again!
