So though it was the setting that drew me, I was quickly involved in the storyline. The dreadful result of a loss of life on the line is tactfully and cleverly dealt with by a central character who has been through it and is now wanting to earn her angel wings. Though this book has a clear message, it is predominantly a story of achievement and winning through, overcoming the past, and strange as this might sound in view of the storyline, a traditional "coming of age."
A very good read which picks up with authenticity the railway setting, and which I was delighted to find in the Kindle store.

Lets begin with the cover. Yes, I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover but, nice cover.
The writing is clear but the dialogue is too direct to the point for my tastes. It's all surface no depth. Not that it needed "depth" because lying or not saying what you mean, isn't something angels are supposed to do, at least not the ones in this book. It was just kind of off-putting to me because I'm more used to reading between the lines even with the most "honest" characters. At the same time it is kind of refreshing.
It has an interesting premise, which is a good thing. But the author seemed too fixated/fascinated with the rules that the characters live with. The truth is, the story still works even without the details that the autor put in to explain the new world Lizzie (main character) lives in.
This is a short story in a series of short stories. I am normally not fond of that sort of thing. Short stories don't normally have enough real estate to bring character development or interesting concepts to the table, at least the bad ones don't. This one though, I would be willing to read more about.
3 stars. I want more... I mean that in both a bad way and a good one.
