Description du produit

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?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A page turner! 10 juillet 2017

No matter how critical others have been, I enjoyed every page, even if I didn't under stand the talk of engines and boilers. This is a very good book describing the customs of the early 19th century with all it's traditions and constraints on young women of the time. The touch of romance between the young people and all that was expected of during courtship was so different from what takes place today. I also truly enjoyed learning more about the history of the beginning of the railroads that changed America so much.

This is just another good example of the author's research into the subject matter. I'll be reading the rest I the series.

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.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Read Filled With History 30 août 2015

I thought this was a very well-written book. I read some of the reviews before I purchased--it's true, it's not a typical romance. I wasn't looking for a romance book when I bought this. I really enjoy historical fiction romance novels--when they're well-written--and this book did not disappoint.

It was actually exciting to read about the time period in our country when trains were just starting to become commonplace. I could only imagine people's reactions to seeing/riding on a train for the first time!

I loved Caroline. Today's society takes for granted the freedom women have to express their feelings--and not be told it's not their place to think/talk that way, as it's only okay for men. I felt so horrible for Caroline when she had to deal with her sister, Virginia. I definitely DID NOT like Virginia. I kept hoping James would see Virginia for who she truly was, and that Caroline would end up with him.

I also enjoyed the parts of the book with Caroline's dad, John, and Andrew Jackson. My heart broke when the family lost children to sickness--sickness that would be no big deal in today's society with modern medicine. There were some religious scenes--they added to the story, but did not overpower it.

I recommend this book--again, just know it's not all about romance, but is filled with lots of history.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Not my cup of tea and not a romance at all 7 mars 2014

So I got the book thinking it was a romance novel as that is how it was listed. So.. I ended up giving this book 1 star for several reasons.

1.) While it wasn't my cup of tea (meaning I didn't enjoy the obsessions over trains and politics. I was going to give it more stars as it was fairly well written. But then the book drug on and on and on about trains and politics. It was to the point that in a very short time I was like "Wholly hell, enough already!"
2.) This was listed as a romance novel and there was zero romance in this books. It was just about a girl obsessed with the railroad and hearing her brothers and fathers discuss politics.
3.) Increasingly through out the book they made more and more references to God, the bible and so forth. It wasn't as if they were seemingly religious or devout throughout the whole book, just only when things happened that they decided to pray on it and then it was always "God's will" and "He will show us the way". If I wanted to read Christian based books I would have looked for one labeled as so. This one was not labeled as such.
4.) While the book was written with ok grammar and spelling, with a few formatting issues, it was a huge let down and I felt like I had almost be deceived from the beginning about what this books, is was and should be. It is one time I wish I would have read the reviews before hand but I tend to not do that so it wont spoil my opinion of the book. After this I might change my mind on this.

So.. in the end it was worth nothing more than a 1 star book. Ok in spelling and grammar but such a let down on everything else. Please label you books accordingly and you might bypass bad reviews such as this one.

Distant Dreams (Ribbons of Steel, book 1)
Author: Judith Pella and Tracie Peterson
419 pages

A lot of the books that I review I do in cooperation with a book review program administered by the book publisher. This book I downloaded to my Kindle and it is currently offered for free on Amazon.com. I am under no obligation to review this book and this is my honest review.

From the back cover:

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?

My Review:

I really disliked this book. I will usually read a novel to completion, but I seriously considered closing this book before I reached the conclusion and never re-opening it. I stopped this book part was through and read two other books before coming back to this one and then I only completed it out of stubbornness.

First, I will discuss the positive aspects of the book. I enjoyed the characters. I felt like they were well-developed and each had their own individual personality. I did, obviously, enjoy some characters more than others, but considering that I relate better to some people than others this is to be expected. Each character got the reaction from me that was intended – I didn’t like Virginia, I loved Carolina, Margaret I found difficult to connect with until she became personable, James was kind and caring and I fell in love with him myself, Joseph was kind and fatherly, etc. Great care was taken to give each character a personality unique to them.

I enjoyed the historical parts of the book. I feel like I learned a lot about the railroad and politics of the time. A lot of information was given regarding these things.

Now for the negatives…

This book was boring, boring, boring. It took WAY TOO LONG to get interesting and when it finally did, it still wasn’t gripping. At any point in time I could have walked away from this book never caring what happened to the characters. I suppose that could be considered a positive since nothing in the book ever resolved. I realize that this is the first in a series; however, the book ended without really tying up any loose ends, but it also ended in such a way that it left me with no desire to read it’s sequels. A good book, especially one with a sequel must end in such a way that you feel that your time spent reading it was worth it and are satisfied and yet there are just enough loose ends to make you really really curious about what happened next. A book should leave you longing for more because it’s just that good, not longing for more just so the story will have had a point.

I’ve heard wonderful things about Judith Pella and Tracie Peterson and I think I have read books by both of them previously. In fact, in the middle of reading this book I read one co-authored by Tracie Peterson and loved it. I was very disappointed that this book turned out better. If the sequel is ever offered for free on Amazon I’ll probably download and at least start reading it, but I wouldn’t pay a dime for it.
