Since I‘m behind on the #letstravelaugust challenge I thought of one book I could use for two prompts: #trains and #hotels.
I loved reading about the Harvey Girls and this time period in the mid/southwest. It got a little repetitive at the end but mostly was an engaging history book.

Bonus: my dh is a train collector & has the type of train used!

In #timeslikethese, #waiting for Prince Charming, the Harvey Girls worry that "It's a Great, Big World," rather than a #bigbrightbeautifulworld. And Judy should have known that being a prospective mail order bride was bound to bring #strangerdanger. #rocktober #hallowreads #melodiousmusicals #uncannyoctober #multitasking
