On the Rails: The Adventures of Boxcar Bertie by Rosemary and Larry Mild ~ (GIVEAWAY)
ABOUT THE BOOK -
What’s a woman to do? Bertie Patchet has just graduated from college in New Haven, Connecticut, to become a grammar school teacher. But the year is 1936, and the country is deep in the throes of The Great Depression. Securing employment is nearly impossible for everyone, let alone a single inexperienced female. Going home is an ugly option to be avoided. Bertie absolutely must get away, but travel without an income? Forget it! Bertie dresses like a man and turns to hopping railway boxcars to make her escape to better opportunities. A female hobo? Unheard of! It’s a man’s world, so how can she maneuver in this male atmosphere fraught with risk, danger, and loss? Will she ever find a teaching job? And will she dare to find romance in the bargain?
A charming new novel with an unforgettable protagonist, a setting to die for, and a mesmerizing plotline, On the Rails is on track to become another beloved tale by dynamic husband-and-wife duo Rosemary and Larry Mild.

MY THOUGHTS -
This was a super cute, super sweet, and a super fun book!
Excellent character development. I adored Bertie. She had such an amazing personality. She was a fighter for sure. She wasn’t afraid to go for what she wanted, even if it meant... pretending to be a man. And fight, she did. She had to fight her way through every situation she came to.
Don’t let the sweet and fun of this book fool you. There is plenty of action.
Having taken place in 1936, this book has lots of great historical aspect to it, which I love!
I highly recommend this for anybody who would like something a little bit different. I would definitely read more by this great writing duo!
