Beyond All Dreams
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?
My thoughts: There is just something I like about Elizabeth Camden's stories! She breaths life into history and her characters that causes me to pick up almost every book she has written (there is just one that I still need to read. I should do that, so I can say I have read all of her books. But, I digress) and enjoy each and every one of them!
I found this story a bit harder to get into at first, though that could be due to being down with a cold when I started it. Whatever the reason, it didn't last long, as I soon fell in love with the characters and had to find out what happened to Anna's father and the ship he went missing while on. This a sweet love story with a bit of mystery and some fun history. A must read!
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
