Summary
One of the many immigrants struggling to survive in 1850s New York, Elise Neumann knows she must take action to care for her younger sisters. She finds a glimmer of hope when the New York Children's Aid Society starts sending skilled workers to burgeoning towns out west. But the promise of the Society's orphan trains is not all that it seems. Born into elite New York society, Thornton Quincy possesses everything except the ability to step out from his brother's shadow. When their ailing father puts forth a unique challenge to determine who will inherit his railroad-building empire, Thornton finally sees his chance. The conditions to win? Be the first to build a sustainable community along the Illinois Central Railroad and find a suitable wife. Thrown together against all odds, Elise and Thornton couldn't be from more different worlds. The spark that ignites between them is undeniable, but how can they let it grow when that means forfeiting everything they've been working toward?

Summary
Life in 1857 New York City is tough for 19-year-old immigrant Elise. She'd promised her dying parents she would care for her four siblings, but she hasn't been able to provide a home or enough food. Desperate, Elise accepts the New York Children's Aid Society's offer of a job in Illinois, requiring her to leave her siblings behind. Meanwhile, Thornton Quincy competes with his brother to see who can marry and create a sustainable town along a railway line in six months; the winner gets their wealthy father's business. Giving readers a sweet love story grounded in faith, With You Always also highlights a lesser known part of "orphan trains" history. -- Description by Dawn Towery
