Shameless (The Orphan Train Saga Book 2) by Sherry A. Burton – Review by Lisa Brydalski

Shameless (The Orphan Train Saga Book 2)Shameless by Sherry A. Burton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

From time to time there is a book that makes me have to gather my thoughts and feelings before I can even venture to write a review that explains the depth of what I have spent so many hours reading and imagining. Sherry Burton has done it again with the second book in her Orphan Train Saga, Shameless. If you are like me you never heard of the Orphan trains in school and how they were used to take homeless or unwanted children from the cities out west to families that wanted children.
I strongly recommend reading this series in order as this is Tobias’s (aka Mouse) story and answers questions from the first book, Discovery. I can honestly say that after reading Mileta’s story in the first book I wasn’t really looking forward to Tobias, but I am glad now that I picked it up, and probably should mention that I liked this book more than the first!! It shows the reader the reasons behind Mouse’s actions from the scared six year old to the adult Mouse just trying to protect what was his. This is a hard book to read at points, because, come on, who could see a child suffering and not want to help? There were many times my eyes teared up and just as many times I cheered for Mouse.
If you are looking for a different storyline I recommend the Orphan Train Saga. The only problem is waiting for the next installment, which is Anastasia’s story, can’t wait for that one!
