Good story

This is such a good book!! Classic Pella and Peterson. A great first book in the series; be warned, the back-cover plot doesn’t all resolve in this book, but will continue in the next book(s). The characters are interesting and well fleshed out. I particularly like Jordana, and am curious to see where her story goes. She’s so feisty, it’s fantastic! I also liked a line near the end where she envisioned her future and felt she’d be settling if she got married at that point. Being in a similar life place, I could really relate to that and may have raised a fist in cheer.

For some reason I really could not get into this book. I will try again later.

Another book without an ending i will not be manipulated into buying the rest of it. Even if I loved the story, which I didn't. Even a free book, which I appreciate and never take for granted, should be a stand alone story. If not, the jacket notes should let the reader know it, BEFORE we decide to get caught up in the story. (Which I didn't.) To the author: if you approved of this way to market your books, I suggest you reconsider it. I have read many reviews that indicate your book could be 5***** and amazing BUT the reader won't be tricked ino buying "the rest of the story."

Nice clean story about the development of the country's railroads and the part it played in the lives of numerous characters. Drawn out and kind of boring at times for me.

Padded in confidently. "I wish to join you" She said in a sadistic, cruel voice

This seemed like a short story stretched so thin it has holes. It has good history, mediocre characters, & actually little knowledge of the demands for photographers in that time period. I kept hoping it would get better. Sadly, it did not.
