Nostalgia book This series was written by six different authors and Schurfranz is my least favorite of the authors She writes as if the girls cannot function without the suitors This book is no exception except I do think Julie hasdetermination and direction than some of the heroines She has her own mind about her future and her place in it The time period is the joining of the two railroad lines across the US. As I continue reading rereading the Sunfire series, I just read Julie This started out pretty funny and then sputtered I would not say this is one of the better books in the series. Numberin the currently out of print Sunfire series bybooks Julie is set induring the First Transcontinental Railroad Overall kind of a boring story I was glad that Julie committed herself to one person through most of the story, but I don t think the grown up decision the book emphasized was something that needed to be considered.
