Trains and Lovers - Alexander McCall Smith

Trains and Lovers by Alexander Smith
This 4 hour, depending on how many stops the train makes, is on its way from Edinburgh, Scotland to London, England.
There are 4 men and one woman and they get to talking. All kinds of subjects but also about love. Some tell of their grand love story when they meet their spouse or
a fond memory they have. Takes you all over the world as that is where they are all from to begin with.
Loved the travel each had described and loved the jobs of a few of them: fisherman who lost his oar and the one who had picked up the steam train in a art setting where trains had not even been invented when the painting had been finished.
I have done both things and felt a bond.  Didn't care much for the travel to and in Australia, just no bond for me there, seems like such a foreign country with the culture.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
