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.

I've read everything Blayne Cooper has published (and even some of her unpublished stuff) and have never been disappointed. She does a fantastic job developing characters and story lines, keeping the reader completely engaged. The only problem (if you can call it that) is many of her books are long, so don't start reading until you can check out of your regular life for a few days.

In 'The Last Train Home,' Cooper delivers a touching story of two young wome from very different worlds who become fast friends and first lovers. Lindsay has grown up on the street and leads a rough, day-to-day existance. Ginny has an education, but works long hours in a chicken-plucking factory to help support her poor family. Ginny's apartment building falls victim to a fire, her parents and some siblings are killed, and while she is in the hospital, her three youngest siblings are adoped out by a crooked orphanage. The story follows Ginny and Lindsay as they fight to survive, search for the kids and fall in love.

Very nicely done. Recommended for taking on a trip to your cabin, read next to a blazing fire, accompanied with a never-ending supply of hot cider. You won't be disappointed.

Blayne is an excellent writer. This is no exception. The research she must have done is evident in the detailed believable setting and plot, the characters are touching and funny and the obstacles they overcome are overwhelming. This is a feel good book with a bit of a page-turner mystery and a lot of heart.

Highly Recommended, I will read anything by this fine writer. This is somewhat of a departure from her previous offerings. A good story, beautifully told.

If it's history you want, this book has it. If it's a romantic story the last train has plenty
If you want non stop action on every page, this book has it, exciting . You will be
on a cross country trip to help find her family, separated by a fire in New York. Enjoy I did.

I have read almost all of Blayne Cooper's books, and have loved her writting style. This one is going to become one of my favorites.

I have enjoyed Cooper's books in the past, so had high hopes for this one. I was rather disappointed as the book is, as it says above, blah.

Ginny is a barely-developed character who seems to have no thoughts in her head other than "I want a family." When we first meet her, she and her older sister are talking about her sister's beau and dreaming about popping out kids. After she is seperated from her younger siblings, all Ginny can talk about is "I want to find them so we can be a family." I keep telling myself that Ginny could just be a model of her time, when women were expected to be brood mares, but that isn't the kind of character I expect to find in a lesbian romance.

Lindsey is a moron. She knows Ginny cares about her, but rather than do the intelligent thing and stay by Ginny's side, she runs off and gets herself beat up multiple times. She is too self-absorbed to seem to care what Ginny thinks about Lindsey's safety. If Lindsey wants to do it, she does it and blast the consequences!

The romance is very understated to the point of almost coming out of nowhere. Perhaps that was the idea Cooper was going for, but it comes across as forced. I would go so far as to say the book would have worked better if it wasn't a romance and was just an adventure.

Beautifully developed characters, as with all of Blayne Cooper's books.
I absolutely loved riding this book. The two main characters we a joy learn about as they grew in the story. It was hard putting the book down. Definitely an enjoyable read.
