Discovery (The Orphan Train Saga Book 1) by Sherry A. Burton

Discovery is the first Book in The Orphan Train Saga and a book I couldn’t stop reading till the end. The story captivated me and I had to know what happens next. There’s a little bit of everything from mystery, to history to drama and some facts. Cindy Moore thinks she’s just tying up some loose ends in regards to her grandmother’s estate. But what she finds is secrets and discoveries she never expected to find. What she uncovers is her grandmother’s past as a part of the Orphan Train and things about her grandmother’s life.i absolutely loved this story and can’t wait to read more from this Author. I highly recommend reading this book especially if you want to know what happens

Discovery by Sherry A. Burton is the first book in The Orphan Train Saga. This is my first book by this author and the story really peaked my interest. Her writing style was flowing and moving. The characters were fully developed and believable. The story was based on the Orphan Trains which I was not familiar with I will be looking into those stories now that I have read this book. The story is about Cindy and her Grandmother who passed away. It is the summer and Cindy being a school teacher has decided to go through her storage unit filled with her Grandmother’s things. Once CIndy starts looking at her Grandmother’s life, she sees a new whole side to her Grandmother. This story has taken me on a roller coaster ride. It is a touching story to see how a Granddaughter learns about her Grandmother’s life and how it affects her.

Thank you Ms. Burton for telling this story.

Discovery (Book 1 of the Orphan Train Saga)
By Sherry A. Burton
5 out of 5 Stars

This is a unique twist on historical story-telling and is a superb telling of actual fact. I absolutely love this book! I had ever heard of the Orphan Trains and was lost in this emotional tale. The ways that Miss Burton entwined fact with a little fictional was magical. This is a cleanly written story that I would be comfortable being read by younger readers as the language isn’t foul. This book is great for readers who have to be grabbed by a story right off. This one is a page-turner from page one! I cannot wait to read the next one!

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!

Discovery (The Orphan Train Saga Book 1) by Sherry A. Burton. This is an amazing book. I loved every page and I can’t wait for the next book. This is the story of Cindy Moore who is using her summer break from being a third grade teacher to go thru her Grandmother’s storage unit to clear up her estate. What she expects to find is a bunch ofmemories and things her Grandmother held onto but are mostly useless. What she finds is an amazing story. Little did Cindy and her mom know, her Grandmother was abandoned by her mother and sent to an orphanage to live. Her Grandmother was also one of the famed Orphans on the Orphan Trains. Why did her Grandmother not tell anyone about this huge part of her life? Why did she hold onto such a huge secret? The Orphan Trains are a historical event that I’ve heard of but didn’t know much about. Now I want to know all I can. I can’t wait for the next installment into the Orphan Train Saga! Part Fiction and a lot true history this book is full of amazing information that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read by this author and I enjoyed it. This story kept me interested throughout the whole of the book and I was intrigued to see where the story was headed. Cindy is the main character and she pulled me right into her story of learning all about her grandmother and the questions she has about the life her grandmother lived. She’s determined to figure out about the lady she never knew and finding those answer are becoming harder to reach as she finds more and more of her things.
This story is a good one. I like that there is a transition between past and present and you never confuse the two because of how good the writing is. I am looking forward to reading more by this author in the future.
Happy reading!

Discovery (The Orphan Train Saga Book 1) by Sherry A. Burton is a historical drama. The story’s premise is based on the real Orphan Trains and the events that surrounded the orphan children of that time in America. Sherry did a great job of mixing fact with fiction and made it into something that you will feel all the way to your soul. It is definitely an emotional read and one that will make your heartache. You feel everything that the character went through, with her survival and hardships, love and loss, pain and longing and worst of all her suffering.

The story is told in the present by a granddaughter, who reads journals about the life her grandmother was forced to live. Set in 1921 we learn about one woman and everything that transpired in her life from the time she went to the orphanage. After reading what she went through, they have a much better understanding of the woman that they knew.

The story is well written and I look forward to the next book.

Discovery (The Orphan Train Saga Book 1) by Sherry A. Burton was was a pretty interesting read that kept me reading.

My first read by this author, I went in with an open mind, and just hit the grow running. I fall easy into this book, as it was well written, had a nice flow, and I liked the back and forth between past and present. I normally don’t read books like this, so it was a nice step out of my normal comfort zone. The were many different elements, that all came to gather for an original intriguing read. I like the MC’s voice, and the stories about her grandmother. It was a nice step back in time, and I fully enjoyed this read.

Overall this book is fit for all ages and it will take you back to a crazy time in this woman life. It’s a good way to see just how much we don’t know about or loved ones, like grandmothers. They are the closes strangers you’ll ever love. To end this book gets my super high recommendation and my stamp go approval.

Happy Reading

Discovery by Sherry A. Burton a four-star read that will take you back. This is the first story in the Orphan Train Saga and the story and characters may be fictional they history behind it is real, it was something I had never heard of before and will definitely be looking into it. Cindy Moore takes us along side her as she uncovers Melita’s truths and history that will surprise you and make your heart swell as you read. This will make you smile at times when you read some of the stories and then bring a tear to your eyes another when it reminds you of another part of your own history, the author brings you into the story and makes you remember your history while delving into others.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Discovery, the first book in the Orphan Train Saga, was amazing and I cannot wait to read the next book! I am officially hooked. Sherry Burton’s writing was amazing, and I didnt know Orphan Trains was a real thing until the very end of the book. I googled it and am now very curious to learn more. The story was so well written, I wouldnt be surprised to learn that its based on real people’s lives. The way the diaries were discovered was exciting, and the content was heartbreaking.
Cindy enherited the storage unit that held all of her grandmother’s belongings, after her mother was tired of paying on them for years. Cindy also paid for years, before finally deciding it time to go through them. She had most of it set out to sell, to make some money and recoup the storage fees, but the one item she decides to take home, opens a whole lot of secrets and mystery. It was a treasure hunt of sorts, leading her to some journals with very emotional stories.
I don’t want to give anything away, but highly recommend this book!
