"The Baby Compromise" is the third book of the Orphan Train series and I think might be the last one. This book was a quick and easy read with a little mystery.

Rebecca is a woman who seems to be trying to please everyone and because of her pride there are some humorous events along the way. Her heart is so large that she often is putting the needs of others before herself. Rebecca is also a hard working woman who jumps in where there is a need.

Colton is a man of honor and who cares deeply for fa
Another great Orphan Train book. Loved how a quilt was the identifying factor for the baby and that in the end all turned out well. Also found out the mystery donation giver and what happened to Jakob. Well written and entertaining.
Solid premise, but found myself skimming the entire book. I tried to stick it out the first few chapter, but didn't feel any depth.
This third installment in the Orphan Train miniseries is an excellent one, and I am so glad I read it! Colton Hayes is a great character, just the type of person whose work ethic and morals I admire,but yet he wasn't perfect and had his own struggles.Rebecca Sterling changed and grew during the course of the story, and was not at all your typical big city rich girl stereotyped character. If you like historical fiction, this whole miniseries is a wonderful look at how and why orphan trains existe ...more

I loved the chemistry between these 2!!! The adorable bickering was awesome and you just know they're both trying to avoid the inevitable xD Not to mention that Heidi was beyond adorable and wanted to adopt her myself!

I was really bummed that this little series came to an end...I really would like to see how the kids turn out and such. I must confess, I was already pairing them up>< Bad, I know. Anyway, yes, I loved it and that's all folks!
I am actually startled by this book. I really liked it...and I haven't been able to say that about any of these harlequin love inspired books in a long time. The characters were engaging and the plot was wonderful.

Linda Ford grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head—often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted ten and lived (at times, endured) the dream.

Writing first took her to non-fiction human-interest articles for newspapers and
