About the book:
A setting populated by hundreds of laborers, outlaws, and Indians is hardly the place for a wealthy general's daughter. But Josephine Cain is determined to visit her father, who supervises the day-to-day work involved in the grandest ambition of post-Civil War America: the building of the Transcontinental Railroad. Life with the railroad is far from the proper life Josephine is used to, and she faces deadly gunfights, harsh weather, and vigilante uprisings. She is torn between the West and the East; between her privileged upbringing and the challenges of a new frontier; between the pull of the suitable beau her parents approve of and an attraction to a rough but charming Irish railroad worker. But if Josephine is willing, she just might find a new life, a unique purpose . . . and true love.

My OpinionThese days, we don't think about the railroad and trains very often. We have planes, cars, and semis for transportation of goods and people. However, back in the post-Civil War days, the dream of a railroad and a way to connect the entire country together by only a few days trip, was a dream that was starting to come true!
I love that The Journey of Josephine Cain gave such a great historical look at the building of the railroad! It is a subject that I have only read about a couple of times and it is really an important time in our country's history!
Besides the great historical aspects, The Journey of Josephine Cain is also a great classic love story between a rich general's daughter and two suitors: one that is approved and one that is not! I loved Josphine's independent and determined streak - once she got past her rich snobbery, she really found she had a brain of her own that she could use to make her own choices and become independent! I loved watching her transformation!
The Journey of Josephine Cain is the total package - a great mix of history and romance all wrapped into one great book that I just couldn't put down!!
