Aug 08, Phylisha Stone rated it liked it. The story revolves around an orphan train. Homeless, abandoned, orphaned children from large eastern cities were put on trains and sent west to the to be "adopted". In some cases that happened. Others especially young 3. Others especially young girls were forced into prostitution because they had no options. They were often no better off that freed slaves. This book made me think. Apr 04, Marjorie rated it it was amazing. The "Orphan Train" series has produced several really good stories with common threads linking each.
The Marrage Barter is no exception. We first meet Sasha and her adoptive mother when several of the orphans are chosen by townspeople, Sasha among them. A hateful spinster bucks and brays at every juncture. The entire town finds her obnoxious, but she withstands them all, convinced she's protecting the town from the encroaching orphan rabble.
Sasha's new mom, Charlotte, was married at the start o The "Orphan Train" series has produced several really good stories with common threads linking each. Sasha's new mom, Charlotte, was married at the start of the proceedings but her husband dies early on, leaving her a now single woman and therefore ineligible to adopt.
Her dilemma is finding someone to marry so she can keep Sasha. Wyatt is the bounty hunter who was hired to bring all the orphans to the last stop, where that town's leaders have their own hidden agenda. Charlotte promises Wyatt the money her husband left her if he will marry her long enough to make the adoption of Sasha sure. He reluctantly agrees. The rest of the story involves fighting off all the opposition.

Wyatt's heart is touched by little Sasha, but it's overwhelmed by the brave-hearted Charlotte and the orphans' plight. How he saves the day makes for a delightful read.

This is the story of characters who have suffered tragedy and disappointment, but they discover that by putting their faith in God, they can begin to heal and move forward. I really enjoyed this story, but it seemed to end a bit abruptly. I would like to have seen more of the happy couple at the end, after they both realized their love for each other. I received this book in a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

May 01, April rated it liked it Shelves: first-reads , I really wish that I could do half stars on the rating scale. I would have rated the book at 3. At the beginning of the book, I had a difficult time connecting to the characters because I was a bit frustrated with their inability to communicate in any meaningful way.
However, by the end of the book, I was very taken with the characters and their stories of faith and survival. In the end, I am glad that I read the book, but I do wish that it had drawn me in a bit quicker I really wish that I could do half stars on the rating scale. In the end, I am glad that I read the book, but I do wish that it had drawn me in a bit quicker and maybe contained a bit more of the future for the characters.
I almost felt that it ended to abruptly because I wanted to know that they really did have a good life and a happy ending. I would definitely recommend this book to those who enjoy historical romance and inspirational, faith-based romance stories. As a side note: I received this book through a goodreads giveaway.

It seems a straight forward arrangement until Wyatt uncovers the darker side of the Orphan Train legacy. Fighting against court deadlines and their own battered emotional backgrounds, the two discover what the meaning of family really is. The history is nicely integrated into this charming tale. I can highly recommend this book! Oct 31, Tonileg rated it it was ok Shelves: western , historical , romance , second-chances , clean.

Heavy handed Christian themes if you like that sort of thing, but the storytelling was still very good. May 02, Alana rated it it was amazing Shelves: first-reads , Apr 26, Barbara rated it really liked it Shelves: christian-fiction , historical-fiction , This second book in the Orphan Train series is a good one. Intrigue and danger, romance, and sweet children all make it delightful. The characters of Sasha, Wyatt, and Charlotte are wonderful; each grabs your heart in a different way, and Charlotte and Wyatt change and grow so much during the course of events that transpire.
The female antagonist from the first book is also in this one, but the mysterious "villian" in the story masterminding the evil was a little bit predictable. Orphan trains f This second book in the Orphan Train series is a good one. Orphan trains fascinate me, and I can't wait to read the third book in the series. Apr 27, June rated it really liked it.
The orphans have arrived and half of them have found new homes but nobody expected someone to question the legality of it all.
