wunderbare Geschichte einer Frau, die sich trotz dem gesellschaftlichen Gegenwind für Bildung und für die technischen Hintergründe und die Entwicklung des Eisenbahnbaus im 19. Jahrhundert in den USA interessiert. Alle 3 Bücher der Serie sind sehr empfehlenswert!
Even though I do not share Carolina's passion for locomotives or math and Latin, I found this book to be very interesting and informative. I had just been reading about Andrew Jackson in my history book, so that made the historical aspect of "Distant Dreams" more interesting to me. I liked the suspense in the first two books. (I'm still reading the third book.) It was hard to put down once I got into the book, which didn't take long.
The time frame was interesting and the facts on the railroad opened my eyes to some things I hadn't thought of befor. I enjoyed the antics of a large family and the characters were easy to empathized with. I would have liked the charaters to have more christian depth, but I'm hopeful that Carolina will have a personal relationship to God in the next book of this series.
Distant Dreams is a wonderful book. I liked how it was not your usual romance. You had to deal with the society's rules of the time. I admire Carolina for her tenacity. I'm reading the second book now. Like I said, I like how it's not your usual romance, it doesn't turn out how you expect. I highly recomend it to everyone.
dieses erste Buch der Ribbon of Steel Serie ist noch spannend, wenn auch etwas langatmig geschrieben, habs auf jeden Fall bis zum Ende gelesen - für mich neu und interessant das Thema der Eisenbahnentwicklung und auch Recht der Frauen auf Bildung
