Publisher's Summary

The moment Martha noticed Raymond on the train, everything her mother warned against erupted - romantic notions, palpitating heart, the desire to write it all in a novel and tell the world.  

Martha lived and wrote that love story until the day Raymond handed her a sketch. “Want to see a picture of the girl I plan to marry?” The penciled profile resembled Martha… But when Raymond went away, she knew. She wasn’t the girl he planned to marry.  

David was her father’s apprentice, everything Martha’s mother said made a good husband - hardworking, no romantic tendencies, no tolerance for writing about it.  

Martha added a fictional happy ending to her and Raymond’s story and published it. Cleansed herself of romantic love, ready to marry David. Until a copy of her book appeared - full of sketches - Raymond’s version of their love story - drawings that enticed her heart to beat once again.

Emotional Story!

This was beautifully written and I even smiled, cried, bit my nails and wanted to smack someone! Amy made you believe every word of it with her narration. This post-WW11 story is so heartfelt, you don’t want to miss it!

Fall in love on your way to work.

I liked this book. It held my attention and had some twists and turns. It had me saying don't do it(out loud)!! It shows the importance of a good friend, companionship and being able to laugh together. This was a great book and I will be happy to read it again and again. The narrator Amy Deuchler did a job. I will be on the look out for other books she has narrated.

Love on A Train

Love on a Train
: Colleen L. Donnelly

This is sort of a historical fiction set shortly after WWII. A young woman named Martha meets Raymond as she travels to work on a train. She becomes interested in him and writes a romance book about what could be. Her mother has other ideas, matching her up withe her father's apprentice. The book takes the listener on her journey to find herself and what she wants from life. A really good book about self discovery.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Amy Deuchler is easy to listen to.



I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Dramatic Love Story

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I enjoyed this story within a story although at times I wanted to tell someone to grow a spine. The daughter and the father. I am glad in the end both grew one and the story ended like it should have. I have never been a fan of someone else telling the other person who they should love and then plan and try to execute their life. I am so grateful for Karen and her finding love to show the heroine what love truly is. The mother could use a good kick in the rear end also. The narrator made the story complete.

Love on a Train

I enjoyed this clean story from after WWII, describing thoughts of the times. The concept of not attracting attention is nothing new, but the thought of not marrying for love is something unimaginable for the time period. I did not like how chauvinistic some of the characters were, nor how willing Martha was to settle for David when Raymond had her heart. This story did not have the steam that many books have, but was appropriate for the time. The narrator did a good performance with the emotions. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. The author did a good job with the imagery and motivation and thought process in the book. I would listen to more books by this author and narrator in the future.
