Publisher's Summary

When a financial crisis in 1850s New York leaves three orphaned sisters nearly destitute, the oldest, Elise Neumann, knows she must take action. She's had experience as a seamstress, and the New York Children's Aid Society has established a special service: placing out seamstresses and trade girls. Even though Elise doesn't want to leave her sisters for a job in Illinois, she realizes this may be their last chance.

The son of one of New York City's wealthiest entrepreneurs, Thornton Quincy, faces a dilemma. His father is dying, and in order to decide which of his sons will inherit everything, he is requiring them to do two things in six months: build a sustainable town along the Illinois Central Railroad, and get married. Thornton is tired of standing in his twin brother's shadow and is determined to win his father's challenge. He doesn't plan on meeting a feisty young woman on his way west, though.

    "Mixed thoughts"

    I have mixed thoughts about this audiobook. The narrator’s voices were pretty good, but I thought the rest of her delivery was a bit ... overdone? That said, I got used to it pretty quickly.

    As for the story itself ... Parts were very good, and I like the overall concept, but if I’d been reading instead of listening, I would have skimmed a lot — there were parts that just seemed too long.

    That said, the main relationship was fantastic ... fun and more realistic interaction than many I’ve read. The slower parts of this book were worth it just for Elise and Thornton.
