Reviews - What do customers think about A Place to Belong (Orphan Train Adventures)?

A Place To Belong  Sep 13, 2001
When the six Kelly children are split up Danny then sees a fake doctor he heard about in New York while at a medicine show out West. When he reveals the phony doctor's secret to everyone there, the doctor decides to hunt Danny down. It is a race to catch each other first before the other one catches you. A dramatic, heart-warming story filled with love, joy, and the importance of family.
A Place to Belong  Jul 26, 2000
This is a great book. I wouldn't recommend reading this book before: A Family Apart, Caught in the Act, and In the Face of Danger. It is the last book a Quartet about the Kelly children. Unless you don't want to read the first three I suggest you read A Place to Belong last.
Couldn't put it down  Jul 19, 1998
It was souch a great book I finished it in one night! Although it was sad, It was very interesting. You really got to know the characters. I hade to get the three other books as soon as I could! One night I stayed up till one in the morning to finish one of the books!
Heart breaking, but surprising.  Jun 27, 1998
It will break your heart but it will make you want to read more.
