Distant Dreams (Ribbons of Steel #1)
As America turns its eyes westward, Carolina Adams finds herself enchanted by an unlikely suitor...the railroad. Frustrated by society's expectations, she longs to study more masculine subjects and is thrilled when her father grants her a tutor.
James Baldwin arrives to serve as Carolina's teacher, but of more importance, he is to court Carolina's beautiful older sister, Virginia. Will expectations--and Virginia's southern charm--elicit the hoped-for proposal? Or will James and Carolina dare to acknowledge the mutual interests and feelings growing between them?
