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.
