Between 1854 and 1929, orphaned or abandoned children from the East Coast were often placed on so-called orphan trains and sent west, possibly for adoption and possibly for a hellish life of virtual servitude. Irish immigrant Vivian Daly was one such child. Now 91, she bonds with welfare teen Molly, whos helping clean out her house. With a 75,000-copy first printing.
