Texas Bound
Hazelle has been living in the Grace Home, an orphanage in New York City, for almost a year. Now she and several other children have been put on a train headed for Texas, where they will be placed with families that want children. But Hazelle isn't an orphan, and her new home isn't what she expected.
Will Hazelle find a place where she belongs?
Hazelle Boxberg was a real eleven-year-old girl who traveled to Texas on an orphan train in 1918. Her story is as exciting as any novel.
