Présentation de l'éditeur

The year is 1835 and Carolina Adams finds herself enchanted by an unlikely suitor...the railroad. Frustrated by society's expectations upon her gender, she longs to study more masculine subjects and is thrilled when her father grants her a tutor.

James Baldwin arrives to serve as Carolina's teacher, but of more importance, he is to court Carolina's beautiful older sister, Virginia. Will expectations--and Virginia's southern charm--elicit the hoped-for proposal? Or will James and Carolina dare to acknowledge the mutual interests and feelings growing between them?

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable read but just the start of a series 20 mars 2013
Par Francesca CH - Publié sur Amazon.com

From the very first page of the book I felt like I was really in another time. So if you love historical novels, do not hesitate, you will really feel the time of first railroads being built in America, you will get the feel of political context, of social relations, and in the middle of all of that you will find lovable characters.

Carolina is a young lady eager to study more "masculine" subjects and develops a passionate interest for railroads. Her mother doesn't approve of such interests, as they are not considered ladylike and proper.
However, her father decides to support her wishes and finds her a private tutor, James, who is courting her sister Victoria and recovering from his railroad accident.

It takes time until Carolina admits to herself the feelings she is developing for James, feelings that put her in difficult situations because James is always somewhere near her, but forbiden, as the whole society expects his marriage to Victoria.

I liked many of the characters in the book, not just the main ones, I liked the pace of getting to know them, I liked the way the story developed and how it gave me an insight into the 19th century society.

What I didn't like is that, even though the book is quite long, it is just the first part of the story, and the one that doesn't resolve the situation between the heroine and the hero. I like to see a closure at the end of the book so if you are like me, just have this in mind so you are not disappointed.

If you don't mind reading series in sequels, and you enjoy historical fiction, you will find this book to be the start of many hours of an enjoyable read.

I bought this book thinking it would be a Christian fiction novel with some romance. All it is about is trains, banks and politics. The main characters aren't even the focus. The book switches characters every chapter, and I found myself skipping a lot to see if anything ever developed between the main two. It was a big read with little satisfaction.

If you like trains go for it.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Mislabeled - NOT a romance 29 avril 2013
Par K. Tobin - Publié sur Amazon.com

If you want to read a book about the history of railroads in the US or a preachy book about women's rights that makes EVERY married woman of the 1800's seem like a shallow, stupid shell of a human being this is the book for you.

This is NOT a romance. Every woman who aspires to marriage is a brainless caricature. Even the "heroine's" own mother is a stupid, shallow woman with no original thought in her head, who would dash all of her children's dreams. Her sister is an evil, vain girl who does not have a single redeeming quality. Her "best friend" (once full of life and ideas) marries and suddenly seems lobotomized. Even the heroine's father flip flops from the true hero of the story into a monster. Initially, he breaks with tradition and hires her a tutor because he so understands her thirst for knowledge and independance - but then he tries to force her into a marriage to a horrible man who everyone knows she detests. So the father is for 3/4 of the book the pen-ultimate progressive, caring man and suddenly in the last quarter a thoughtless tyrant who has no care for her feelings. ????

The "heroine" does have a secret love for her tutor - who also secretly loves her. But he is engaged to her evil sister and she never so much as touches him. She never tells him her feelings and he never tells his. Even after he breaks off his engagement to her sister they never get together. So he goes to the mid-west and she is left at home with her books. Which is, of course, fine according to the authors because marriage is a terrible thing...

It doesn't matter if the book is free. You might not spend a dollar but you will spend your time. And while you can always get the dollar back you will never recover the hour of your life that you will waste...

The only reason I am giving this book one star is that I am not allowed to give it none.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Intriguingly suspenseful, page turner 15 août 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Distant Dreams is a wonderful book. I liked how it was not your usual romance. You had to deal with the society's rules of the time. I admire Carolina for her tenacity. I'm reading the second book now. Like I said, I like how it's not your usual romance, it doesn't turn out how you expect. I highly recomend it to everyone.

I love this author's books and this one was a good read as well but I couldn't "handle" all of them in this series (my interest in locomotives can go only so far). The book contained a lot of information (I believe historical facts were accurate). I liked the relationships that were built - colorful, exciting. And found the father's choice of the children's names amusing (not in order): York, Maine, Virginia, Carolina, Maryland, Pennsylvania (Penny)... :). Enjoyable for sure.
