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?

Enjoyable story with good range of characters. Ending rather abrupt and unfinished

A good book, but definitely need to read the next book in the series or you'll be left hanging.

It was ok, it's not the best book I ever read, in fact throughout the book I found my self bored, but at the same time it had some interesting aspects but I wasn't too eager to turn the page
