hankIn the sequel to Gratefully Yours, set in Nebraska in the fall of 1923, 12-year old Hank Donohue doesn’t mind leaving the New York orphanage, as long as his brother Peter goes with him. Together the boys ride the Orphan Train to Nebraska, where they are taken in by the Olsons—a bitter, childless couple anxious for help on their farm.

“Heart-wrenching, gripping … Written simply but with great eloquence.”
