That may be the best that any work of historical fiction has to offer—not just to its author, but, more importantly, to its readers—a chance to grapple with the mysteries and complexities of the past, in hopes of seeing the present a little clearer. Read out loud as part of a cozy bedtime ritual. The fascinating thing about this book is all the manipulatives it has on each page. Every novel requires some but the amount needed for a historical novel, unless you already have a PhD in your chosen year, is immense.

I could focus on the shape shifting story line, or the action packed motorcycle racing sequences. Encyclopædia Britannica articles are written in a neutral objective tone for a general audience. This powerful historical novel examines racism and prejudice through the lens of both fictional children and real historical figures. Mail-Order Kid looks at the orphan train movement through the eyes of one small child who yearns to know her “real” mother, survives a tortured childhood, and ultimately, as an adult, comes to terms with her past, her faith, and herself.
