Whispers Along The Rails

Whispers Along the RailsWhispers Along the Rails by Judith McCoy Miller

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Olivia Mott receives a job working for the railroad that she is told is to find ways to save the company money. But is something more sinister going on behind the scenes? Olivia is also trying to mend her relationship with her old friend Fred DeVaut, but how can they overcome the barriers and misunderstandings that bar their path.
     I enjoyed this book. It was a pleasant read with a pretty good(if somewhat predictable) plot. The only real problem with this book was the authors portrayal of evil capitalists fighting against the unions. Of course just as a story, it was good. But a couple of times she brought up how the capitalists were oppressing the working people. Capitalism is what gives us the freedom to choose our occupations and be innovative. It gives us the chance to work hard and make something of ourselves. But at any rate, the author is entitled to her own opinions and beliefs, I just happened not to agree.
