I didn't like that there was no ending. If I want to know what happens, I have to buy the next book. I'm not sure I want to since I was annoyed by the main female character quite a bit. Even though she developed a backbone and the story progressed, the story often got derailed (no pun intended) and she became spineless again. Very frustrating since there was no ending.

Disappointing

It seems I should have read the reviews more closely. Sadly, as with much Christian fiction, this book was preachy and predictable. Don't waste your money or your time.

    very disappointed

    this book should be listed under Christian and historical fiction. Intially I thought a nice fiction book on the American RR and exploitation of workers tied in with a nice super easy read to lull me to sleep would be good UNTIL it started incorporating religion.

    This happened with another 'free' fiction book (now I know why they are free). Will stick with ebooks from my library or B&N mystery/suspense

    Dull and disinteresting

    This book's plot is not only far-fetched, but it is terribly boring. I didn't give a hoot about any of the characters, and I certainly didn't care about the romance between Fred and Olivia. A dead fish has more passion! I don't care enough about the plot to read the next books.

    Book leaves you hanging. No ending

    An easy read, however it it ends as if another continuinggive chapter is needed. You dont find out what happens to any of the characters.
    A half completed story. Give it a miss.

    In The Company Of Secrets

    Beautiful story that kept me interested and I couldn't put the book down because I had to see what was going to happen next. I would highly recommend this book.

    I can appreciate the a few unresolved issues to create interest

    I can appreciate the a few unresolved issues to create interest in the follow up books but to resolve nothing is very unsatisfying. I agree that it was very preachy and unrealistic. I have lost interest in the characters and won't be buying the sequel.
