Katherine Rogers has everything a young woman could hope for in 1849 Scotland...except the freedom to make her own choices. The last thing she wants to do is to get married, and then, she meets James Spenser. Can there be any future together for the outspoken daughter of a railway owner and the charming young man working on the project?
This is the first book in the Railway Romance series. These books show how trains and the building of the railway tracks brought people together. Often people, who would never have met any other way...and the romances that crossed economic, class, and even cultural lines. If you ever have the chance, ride a train. Especially with someone you love.
This is the first book I've read by this author, if you haven't read it you should the narration was great

It's 1849 in Scotland and the first railway ferry is being built to cross the Firth of Forth. James is assigned the duty of escorting Katherine, the bosses daughter, Back and forth as she works on developing the promenade.
I enjoyed listening to the story unfold as we see their relationship blossom.
The narrator did a fantastic job with conveying the emotions and I also loved the accents.
a wonderful and well written adventure. fun and entertaining and ready for the next installment! Absolutely LOVE the voice of the narrator
I always enjoy fiction that has an historical basis and this audio book was no exception . The characters were strong. The romance storyline was sweet. And the narrator had a sweet voice that told this story well. This story starts out in Scotland and ends up in America. The narrator did a great job switching between the dialects. My only criticism of the story was that there is a major turning point in it that is sort of hidden in chapter 23. I thought that this episode deserved a chapter of its own and needed to be fleshed out.
This was a really easy listen. The story was interesting and engaging. The characters were very likable, except the ones that weren't supposed to be. This is not a rollercoaster ride, shocking, or even steamy listen. But, it is a fun, engaging story. Perfect for a relaxing day where you just want some engaging entertainment. The writing is good, and it's just a refreshing change.
Siobhan Waring has a beautifully lyrical voice that is a pleasure to listen to. Her characterizations and narration is really nice. She has a voice that is just a pleasure to listen to. And, she's engaging. I was offered this as an ARC and both author and narrator were new to me. And, I look forward to more from both.
