Searching for You Reviews
Series books and I have a love/hate relationship. I love series because the story continues from one book to the next, and we get a more intimate look at each character. However, like with Searching for You, the series must come to an end, which this reader is not a fan of.
The more and more I review the harder and harder it is to put the emotions the story evokes into words.
I've been looking forward to Sophie's story since reading Together Forever, and Miss Hedlund does not disappoint with her ...more
I was fortunate to be able read all three books in the Orphan Train series all together (one benefit of waiting for an entire series to be published before starting book one). And I am so glad that I could, because as soon as I started the first book in the series I knew I wanted more of this charming family facing such difficulties. More of swoon-worthy romance. More challenges overcome through faith and community. As soon as I finished each book I eagerly picked up the next. While each of the ...more
I loved this conclusion to the Orphan Train series! I loved seeing how Sophie struggled and how she overcame her obstacles.
This series has probably been one of my favorite series that Jody Hedlund has written. Her books always have depth to them.
I received a copy from the publisher in order to help promote it. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Rating - 5 stars.

What a wonderful story and a beautiful wrap up to the Orphan Train series. I have read every book in this series, including the prequel novella, yet I believe that Searching for You could be read and enjoyed by someone who had not read the other books that precede it.
These two main characters were ones that I really connected with and longed for them to receive their happily-ever-afters. Sophie made some mistakes in judgment through the years, doing what she could to provide for two orphaned chi ...more
Searching For You by Jody Hedlund is the third book in the Orphan Train Series.
I highly recommend that you read this whole series as a group for an enjoyable, educational experience.
This book focuses on Sophie Neumann, the youngest sister of the Neumann family. It also deals with what happened to orphans after they were placed in a home in the 1850’s.
The journey is a long one for Sophie. She has experienced all kinds of hardship after her sisters have left New York City. She has fought to kee ...more
Come join Sophie Neumann, the youngest sister in the Orphan Train series, and see her journey of healing as she grows into the person God wants her to be!
We begin with a hurt and hardened Sophie, who not only feels abandoned by her older sisters, but who is worn out from trying so hard to care for Olivia and Nicholas. Though she's not related to these children, they were orphaned from infancy, and Sophie has cared for them and has been the only mother they've ever known. But she's had to resort ...more
Perfect end to the series <3
Reinhold's happy ending has been long coming and well deserved. Not to mention Sophie's and all the mystery surrounding her.
Both need healing, but, most of all, to come to a stand of surrender. To embrace the new life despite any past mistake, rooted in grace and love through which life flourishes.
Something that I have absolutely loved in this series is how Jody Hedlund creates space for growth. Though not uncommon during their time period, the characters have to m ...more
Sophie knew it was time to stop running from her mistakes and the brokenness of her life. She had to face her sisters before she could move on. She had to do it for them, for her, for them all. (Sophie)
Was it possible that God could change him into a better man? If Jakob hadn't lost faith in him, maybe God hadn't either. (Reinhold)
It's really hard for me to write up a review for a book that touched me deeply. Hedlund knows how to compose a story that will stay with me for a long time to come. ...more
