Publisher's Summary

In this novella, Maribelle is asked to leave the orphanage at age 18. She isn't sure where to go or what to do, so she jumps at the chance to ride the Orphan Train and help take care of the 24 children. At the final stop in Missouri, she is once again concerned about her future return to Boston, but when a handsome man asks if he can "adopt" her to help take care of "Connie", she immediately agrees. Will Maribelle, "Belle", find a home and love in Missouri or have to return to the orphan life in Boston?

Quiet Little Story

This little story is short, conventional, quickly told. The characters are hardly developed, but it's "cute" for a short read/listen. It's predictable in every respect. It doesn't lag -- too short for that :) -- but there is no "antagonist" plot that is developed, either. I guess there doesn't have to be one -- it's just not a typical recipe for a story.
