This is a little gem of a book. As the title suggests, it tells of the experiences of four people on a train as they reflect on their past loves and their intersection with trains. The author is well-known for his No. 1 Ladies Dectective Ageny series of books, and this is a departure from that genre.
The story begins on a train and as four strangers begin to exchange small talk they reflect back privately on a time in their lives when trains intersected their relationships. The writer skillfully intertwines their stories of love found and lost. It's a quick read with some food for thought.
