  • A Jump Back in History

    I found this a compelling book which I could not put down. If you love historical fiction which intertwines present day you will live this book. I loved every aspect of the characters, the charm of the railroad. All of it! I highly recommend this book.

  • Interesting story

    This is an entertaining stories told in present day and in the 1930s. In present day, Tilly is let go from her job just as her husband leaves her, so she goes to stay with her dad Ken who is working on the railroad restoration. Ken asks Tilly to help sort thru the boxes of memorabilia found at the railroad, to get her mind off her troubles. In the 1930s, a stationmaster Ted meets Anne who travels back and forth daily to her job, and is attracted to her. They strike up a friendship, until Ted finds that Anne is engaged to a man who her father wants her to marry for financial reasons. Ted and Anne defy her father, have a tryst, and Anne gets pregnant. What to do?

  • A good read.

    A very good comparison on what woman were allowed to do in the 1930's and what woman have achieved by present day. Sad but victorious.

  • Love, Loss and Tragedy.

    Ted Morgan's a stationmaster in Dorset in 1935, he’s a bachelor and he's never found someone he wanted to share his life with. Ted’s in charge of England’s most picturesque railway runs, he’s very efficient and the trains run on time. One of the regular passengers catches his eye, Annie Galbraith, she’s beautiful, and he develops feeling for her. Ted’s very shy, with his sister Norah’s encouragement, he tells Annie how he feels about her and he’s shocked when she returns his feelings. Annie’s seeing Bertram Clarke Watson, her father wants her to marry him and Annie’s father isn’t going to consider Ted as a suitable suitor for his daughter. Ted's informed the railway is going to close, he’s devastated, he’s desperately trying to find another job and tragedy strikes on the stations final day. Tilly Thomson's marriage has just ended, mentally she’s struggling, and she’s lost her chance to have a family and her job. Her best friend Jo comes to the rescue, she contact’s Tilly’s dad Ken and he drives to London to see his daughter. Ken convinces Tilly she needs a break, it’s lovely in Dorset this time of year and she can stay with him. Ken’s involved in the Michelhampton and Coombe Regis Railway Society, they're restoring the old station at Lynford and he hopes to get Tilly involved in the project. At first she’s not interested, she's struggling to get out of bed in the morning and drinking too much. Tilly finally gets her act together, goes to the station with Ken, she discovers some diaries hidden in the old ticket office, they belonged to Ted and she’s determined to solve the mystery around his lost love and what happened at the railway station on the day it closed. The dual timeline story seamlessly links the past and the present together. The Stationmaster’s Daughter is a story about love, tragedy, heartache, history, secrets, solving an old mystery, moving forward and making peace with the past. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review, four stars from me and I look forward to reading other books by Kathleen McGurl.
