Hello, bookworms! It’s time for another Goodreads Monday!
Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme where we randomly select a book from our Goodreads To Be Read list and share it with the world. It’s hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners, so be sure to link back to her site so that we can all see what everyone plans to read!
As the last train leaves, will life ever be the same?
Stationmaster Ted has never cared much for romance. Occupied with ensuring England’s most beautiful railway runs on time, love has always felt like a comparatively trivial matter. Yet when he meets Annie Galbraith on the 8.42 train to Lynford, he can’t help but instantly fall for her.
But when the railway is forced to close and a terrible accident occurs within the station grounds, Ted finds his job and any hope of a relationship with Annie hanging in the balance…
Recovering from heartbreak after a disastrous marriage, Tilly decides to escape from the bustling capital and move to Dorset to stay with her dad, Ken.
When Ken convinces Tilly to help with the restoration of the old railway, she discovers a diary hidden in the old ticket office. Tilly is soon swept up in Ted’s story, and the fateful accident that changed his life forever.
But an encounter with an enigmatic stranger takes Tilly by surprise, and she can’t help but feel a connection with Ted’s story in the past. (Goodreads)
This book caught my eye when I first saw it on NetGalley a while ago. As I had a bitter experience of having my request rejected by the same publisher a year ago, I couldn’t bring up my courage to request this book.
Now, probably because of a book blog tour that’s been currently going, I have seen this book on Twitter quite a lot and the amazing Shalini’s review for this book came for the kill. Her review was so amazing that I could not resist my temptation to grab my copy.
I haven’t read historical fiction as often as I used to lately, but I’m already stoked to read this one. I hope to get my hands on this book this coming weekend 🙂
That’s about it for today.
How about you? Have you read this book already? If you have, what are your thoughts?
Thank you so much for reading as always, and I’ll see you in my next post!
