I found this book to be quite exciting and even a bit adventurous. Carolina continues to keep her faith and rely on God through the hard times that come up against her. She stumbles like everyone else, but truly cares about the well being of the people around her. You'll go with her as she comes to cope with the problems that encompass her, while she and her husband James try to maintain a home. Her mind is intrigued in the railroad building around her, and she finds all the information she can on it. Not many people encourage her to continue an education, however. Only her husband and father understand her need to learn. She finds out that marriage is the fairy tale she dreamed it would be, James is rarely home and her children take up a big part of her time. She learns the real meaning of marriage, but it is a joy to her as she grows in her role as wife and mother. She learns the true meaning of real love. I found it a wonderful Christian, romance novel that keeps you on the edge of your seats. I am hoping for the 4th one in the series.
