Judith Pella and Tracie Peterson present Book 1 in the Ribbons of Steel series.
The year is 1835 and Carolina Adams finds herself enchanted by an unlikely suitor . . . the railroad. Frustrated by society's expectations upon her gender, 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?
