A Place to Belong (The Orphan Train Adventures #4)
Dr. Mundy, his face dark red with anger, struggled to stay in control. He raised his voice and said firmly, "No need to shove or shout. If you're not happy, I'll refund your money. Folks know my good reputation wherever I go."
"Not in New York," Danny said. "Your tonic killed a man there."
"A lie! The boy is lying!" Dr. Mundy shouted, glaring at Danny.
"I am not lying," Danny said. "You aren't a real doctor, either."
"The man's a crook!" someone yelled.
"A cheat! Give back our money!"
A woman screamed as the crowd pushed toward the wagon.
Dr. Mundy handed back coins as fast as he could, tossed bottles of pills and tonic helter-skelter into the wagon, and scrambled to lift and lock the wagon's gate. He paused in front of Danny, grabbing the collar of his coat and poking his face close to Danny's. "I won't forget you, brat!" he said. "I'll get you for this."
Danny Kelly and his other five brothers and sisters are sent west from New York to Find new Homes.
Danny and his younger sister Peg feel lucky to be adopted by kind Alfrid and Olga Swenson in St. Joseph, Missouri. But when Olga dies suddenly, the children fear they will lose their wonderful new family.
Danny comes up with an ingenious plan so they won't be separated, and which might even bring his real family back together. Then Danny runs into a phony doctor he knew from New York City, who recognizes him. Can Danny protect himself and those he loves from the evil doctor and still make his plan work?
