A girl /woman far ahead of her time. What a fight she has. to obtain acceptance that women are intellegent beings capable of achieving much in spite of the conventions of the day.

This was different for me as I am usually reading about the people on the wagons headed west with all the adventure. This book more about the families living in the big cities and all the fanfare the ladies had to know about coming out parties and social behavior was a little boring. I am going to continue on with the series hoping Caroline will get to live her dreams in the west. Also this book has a lot of history about railroads.

This book was well-written. It has the usual characteristics of the romance genre. I have read tons of them. So....why does this plot stand out rather than melt into a fog of other romances? Could it be because the historical background is different than the usual? The underlying conflict of railroad politics of the 1830's makes this book unique.

Also, the Christian undertones are just that. They do not overpower the novel, but yet the Biblical lessons addressed are there for those who need guidance or a book that you wouldn't mind seeing your daughter pick up to read.

Amazing! Capturing story. I live in the area that the book was written about so it was great being able to relate. I cannot wait to finish this series.
