4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasing conclusion 12 Nov 2013
By Maria
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another enjoyable and faith filled story.
It left the door open for other stories with some of the characters and it was good not to have everything neatly concluded. I would certainly look out for future novels by these authors

5.0 out of 5 stars third in an interesting historical US trilogy. 16 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Enjoyed each of these 3 books, partly because I knew nothing of the history of railroads in the US, partly because, as always it was a page turning story with many turns along the way, and particularly because in this 3rd book, the authors go deeper into the relationships within a marriage as time progresses and difficulties of many kinds are faced with faith and humour.

I truly liked this book if only for the continuance of the charactors. The story line has lots of variety and could be said to be many stories into one. It starts almost exaclty where the last book ended with the lives of Carolina, James, & Victoria learning to become a family. What I really enjoyed about this book and the series is the historical aspect that just so happens to center around my hometown as well as the fact that the author makes references to obvious historical persons.

5.0 out of 5 stars An intriguing story line! 2 Aug 2000
By Danielle Raymo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good story! 21 Dec 2001
By Anna M. Vandenhazel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This story takes place after James and Carolina's marriage at the end of "A Hope Beyond." As their family continues to grow, James and Carolina leave their beautiful Baltimore home and move to a small house further west so that James can be close to the expanding B&O Railroad, but still be able to come home at night most of the time. Adopted daughter Victoria falls in love with Kiernan O'Connor, a young Irishman who works closely with James, but at the same time, Kiernan's older brother Red constantly works to turn other workers against James and each other, with tragic results. If the story doesn't quite seem finished to you, it's important to read the 3 books in the "Ribbons West" series too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Score for Judith and Tracie! 20 April 2000
By Megan Langford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The whole Ribbons of Steel series is fantastic and although I haven't read Ribbons West yet, I am looking forward to them immensely. This book intertwines the lives of Carolina and her husband, with her daughter's, Victoria. By the way, does anyone know if this is the last in the Ribbons of Steel series? I like to read books in ordaer and am trying to figure out if the Ribbons West series starts after this book. Email me if you know! Thanks!
4.0 out of 5 stars Promises for Tomorrow review 13 April 2014
By Jackie Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Judith Pella novels. Romance and intrigue; plus riding the rails from the inception of the first track being laid to their dream becoming a reality. And getting to know each personality individually as a family saga unfolds. Loved it.
