With You Always

Today is the first of three reviews for Lutheran author Jody Hedlund’s trilogy, Orphan TrainToday’s book is With You Always.

With You Always Review

This was an enjoyable read featuring a strong heroine set during the financial crisis of 1850s New York. As the eldest of three orphaned sisters, Elise struggles to do her best and retain both her morality and her dignity in the face of severe testing.

Elise is likeable and I related to her. She had some fire and humor to her but I wouldn’t call her sassy. I thought that both her storyline and the Thornton challenge were presented well (It makes a lot of sense to consider the train business in a series about orphan trains!).

I really appreciated how well everything wrapped up! 

It was a good enough read that I sat down and read through the whole series in about a week or so. I’d expected this book to stay my favorite out of the three, but it actually took second place because another one was just that good. 🙂
