It’s a little early for a Christmas story but this book is also a train story. Tom Langdon decided to take the slow unstressful train trip across country to spend Christmas with his girlfriend. He is also a writer and is writing an article on trains and the people you meet along the way. Things don’t turn out as stress free as he hoped but he does meet some interesting people on board. David Baldacci did his research on the Amtrak train system and history so you learn a lot about it. I love trains so I’m ready to take a trip anywhere. It’s a fun read with a few surprises.
