Sinopsis: Blayne Cooper, the award-winning author of Cobb Island, Echoes from the Mist, and The Story of Me, has torn The Last Train Home, her touching, gritty new novel, from the pages of American history at the end of the nineteenth century.
It might have been the Gilded Age for the likes of Rockefeller and Carnegie—but newly arrived immigrants and poverty-stricken Americans packed into Manhattan’s teeming Lower Eastside were lucky to make ends meet.
In this tumultuous time, factory worker Virginia Chisholm hopes for more, but her dreams go up in smoke when a tenement blaze rips her family apart. Aided by Lindsay Killian, the street-wise, rail-riding drifter she meets in a charity hospital, Ginny follows the orphan train that has taken her siblings west. The desperate quest to reunite her family takes the young women from the slums of New York City to the farms of West Virginia and the bustling frontier beyond. This harrowing journey moves Ginny and Lindsay from one mishap and adventure to another. It also leads them from friendship to a tender and unexpected romance.
About the Author: Blayne Cooper is the author or co-author of a variety of fiction ranging from mystery/romance to outrageous parody. While she enjoys the challenge of working in multiple genres, it's writing about the humor found in everyday life that gives her the most pleasure.
The University of Oklahoma College of Law grad loves travel, reading, and spending long, sleepless nights crouched over her computer in search of the perfect words that will make people laugh or weep uncontrollably. She's still looking, but having a great time on the journey.
A rolling stone at heart, Blayne currently resides in the Midwest with her loving spouse, two young children, and cairn terrier.
