Looking for Home (Beyond the Orphan Train Book 1)

With his mother dead, his father gone, and his older brothers and sisters unable to help, eight-year-old Ethan Cooper knows it’s his responsibility to keep him and his younger siblings together—even if that means going to an orphanage.

Ethan, Alice, Simon, and Will settle into the Briarlane Christian Children’s Home, where there’s plenty to eat, plenty of work, and plenty of talk about a Father who never leaves. Even so, Ethan fears losing the only family he has. How can he trust God to keep him safe when almost everything he’s known has disappeared?

The first book in the Beyond the Orphan Train series, Looking for Home takes us back to 1907 Pennsylvania and into the real-life adventures of four children in search of a true home.

A World Beyond Home: The Education of a Poet, an Athlete, and a New Generation of Students

George was a drug dealer at age 15. Siddiq was a gang member. Five years later, George was a world-famous spoken word poet, and Siddiq was a college football star whose passion for community service led newspapers to call him “the Gandhi of Delaware.” How did this transformation take place? How did these teenagers succeed while so many of their friends drifted aimlessly into adulthood? A World Beyond Home explores these questions through a behind-the-scenes look at success in an American public school. As George and Siddiq’s high school English teacher, Stuart Albright watched their lives unfold at a critical stage of their development. George struggled to stay in school. Siddiq had to choose between his gang and his football team. George and Siddiq were deeply flawed teenagers who made plenty of bad decisions, but they still found a way to be successful. A World Beyond Home follows George, Siddiq, and their classmates as they try to find meaning in their lives. Their stories are unique, but their struggles define an entire generation of kids.
