I give Discovery (The Orphan Train Saga Book 1) by Sherry A. Burton, 5 stars.
Cindy’s grandmother passed away and unbelievably left her the house she owned and stated that all of her items be put into a storage unit after her death. Well, 7 years have gone by and she figures it is time to go through everything. Her grandmother was a cold, distant woman so it shouldn’t be hard to do. Then she finds a key that changes everything for her. Turns out her grandmother kept many secrets. This woman experienced many, many things during her younger years, beginning with being abandoned to an orphanage at a young age. But the stories just keep getting better. Cindy is finally on the path of learning whom her grandmother really was. But what does that really mean? Travel back to a time of complete hardships where you had to do things you normally never would just to survive.
I could not believe how good this book really was!! This is a new author to me so I wasn’t sure what to expect. She takes you in a wild ride of the early 1900s and she put you right in the front seat. I felt like I was right there beside Cindy as she read these journals. And the emotion!!! You really feel what her grandmother went through. The story and characters in this book are superbly written and I cannot wait to read the next book. I highly recommend it to every adult out there!
