This is the first story I have felt a need to draw attention to. If you like trains/railroading, the dynamics of country life and relationships of those who live there, you will enjoy this tale. Even if it is set in England. The first chapter is a flashback and some may have chosen to pass on the series after reading it as I almost did. I realized that Abby had not appeared so I read the second chapter and was hooked.
It is not a stroke story unless you are aroused by the powerful stroke of a steam propelled piston. (I have to admit that the steam and early gas machines of the first half of the last century do cause my heart rate to increase.)
Good Luck and Happy Reading
