Shameless (Autographed softcover) The Orphan Train Saga (Book Two) (Signed by the author)
As The Orphan Train Saga continues, Cindy and her mother continue to uncover the secrets in the journals that are hidden in her grandmother's attic.
The story resumes in 1914, as young Tobias is forced onto the streets of New York City. Like so many other orphans of the era, he learns to lie, cheat, and steal just to survive. Armed with a silver tongue and his wits, Tobias soon finds himself headed west on one of the orphan trains. When that placement doesn't work, Tobias is returned to NYC and back on the streets he once called home. Slightly older and much wiser, Tobias thrives in this new setting. That is, until he becomes obsessed with Mileta and finds himself on yet another orphan train headed west and adopted into the infamous Purple Gang Society.
Will this gang, with its emphasis on criminal activity at any cost, claim what is left of the young man's soul?
