Publisher Description

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?

Fun book

I enjoyed the story about the sisters and how life was so different for women during that time in history. It was slow starting with so much talk of railroads and such unusual names, but once I got past the introduction to the characters it was a good book.

Distant Dreams

I really enjoy her novels. I learn much interesting history amidst delightful storylines and characters. Distant Dreams was no exception. I look forward to the next book in the series!
