A to Z Project, book 10
This one needs some explanation. I've begun a project to read my way across the fiction section of my library, picking one book from each shelf. This was the first shelf where nothing really caught my interest, and that, combined with not really understanding how much of a women's melodrama Dream Train is, led me to pick it.

Read this a long time ago, but I liked it a lot. The main character is a travel photographer and gets an assignment on the Orient Express, there just aren't enough photography related novels out there.

My rating kept changing as I read this book. Some parts were really good and kept my interest going, then there were a few pages here and there with definitely non-Gospel attitudes towards premarital sex and marital fidelity. In the end my true rating is probably a 3.5, but that isn't an option.
