Title: BEYOND ALL DREAMS
Author: Elizabeth Camden
Publisher: Bethany House
December 30, 2014
Genre: Historical romance
Is bringing the truth to light worth risking all they've ever dreamed for their futures?
Anna O'Brien leads a predictable and quiet life as a map librarian at the illustrious Library of Congress until she stumbles across the baffling mystery of a ship disappeared at sea. Thwarted in her attempts to uncover information, her determination outweighs her shyness and she turns to a dashing congressman for help.
Luke Callahan was one of the nation's most powerful congressmen before his promising career was shadowed in scandal. Eager to share in a new cause and intrigued by the winsome librarian, he joins forces with Anna to solve the mystery of the lost ship. Opposites in every way, Anna and Luke are unexpectedly drawn to each other despite the strict rules forbidding Anna from any romantic entanglements with members of Congress.
From the gilded halls of the Capitol where powerful men shape the future of the nation, to the scholarly archives of the nation's finest library, Anna and Luke are soon embroiled in secrets much bigger and more perilous than they ever imagined. Is bringing the truth to light worth risking all they've ever dreamed for their futures?
All I can say about BEYOND ALL DREAMS is wow. A map librarian, a congressman, both careers that could lead to stuffy characters, but this is anything but. Luke has his demons he battles, demons that could run his congressional opportunities. Anna is desperate to find out what happened to her father years earlier—especially when she discovers errors in an official report. But she keeps getting shushed at every turn and soon learns that she may be in danger—not only of losing her job, but possibly of even losing her life.
I have enjoyed all Ms. Camden’s books so far, and I think I have said that each of them is my very favorite, but I’m going to say it again. I fell in love with these very real characters, and hated to see this book end. Spell-binding. I literally couldn’t put this book down. If you like historical fiction, don’t miss BEYOND ALL DREAMS. It is loosely based on real events and what played out in these pages could’ve easily happened in real life.
Available in ebook, paperback and hardcover. 368 pages.
