Product Description

Anna O'Brien leads a predictable and quiet life as a map librarian at the illustrious Library of Congress until she stumbles across a baffling mystery of a ship disappeared at sea. She is thwarted in her attempts to uncover information, but 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 until his promising career became 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 entanglement with a member 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 themselves?

    nother great historical fiction story taking place in Washington D.C in 1897. Great research and detail by Elizabeth Camden including events that led to the Spanish-American war. An amazing story unlike any other historical fictional book I have read. I love the plot and well developed characters.

    Anna O'Brien works at the Library of Congress as a map librarian and has run across the mysterious disappearance of the Culpeper that was lost at sea. She decides to try and solve the mystery. Anna enlists the help of Luke Callahan who at one time was one of the most powerful congressmen in D.C. They are so different from each other could they possibly have a relationship? In trying to find answers about the Culepper they encounter more than they bargained for.

    Although the Culpeper is a fictional ship it is based on the Virginius an American ship caught smuggling guns to Cuban rebels in 1873.

    Elizabeth is a talented writer and has included politics, humor, some suspense and romance in her book.

    I recommend this book. I enjoyed it very much.

    I received a free copy of this book from bookfun.org for my honest opinion and review.

    This book was a dream!

    Ms. Camden does so well with her historical novels. I've been impressed with each novel I've had the pleasure of reading. In this particular story I thought she did a superb job handling the historical information so that you weren't bored, but rather fascinated. She touches on a place in history that I am unfamiliar with, so I found the story enchanting overall.

    In Beyond All Dreams we meet Anna O'Brien (whose last name had me thinking of Downton Abbey!) and Luke Callahan. Both characters felt extremely well-rounded and each seemed real. Anna had a rough childhood, losing both her parents as well as experiencing great trauma. Luke, on the other hand, suffered a different kind of childhood, which was equally unpleasant. In my humble opinion I feel it is critical for a character to act according to his/her background and personality, and I felt like Ms. Camden accomplished that with both lead characters.

    In conclusion, I loved getting this up close look at the United States of America in the late nineteenth century. Each historical aspect was handled with care and presented well. I loved that, even though the mystery was fictional, Ms. Camden seamlessly wove it into this time period. I look forward to reading her future books!

    I checked this book out at my local library; no review required.

    Beyond all Dreams deals with Washington, DC in the 1890's. Anna is a Library of Congress librarian and Luke is an US Representative. There is fun and also seriousness to the book. The historical aspect is informative. Elizabeth Camben as always has written an entertaining book.

    I received this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Beyond All Dreams is another riveting read by author Elizabeth Camden. In this one we have Anna OBrien working as a map librarian at the Library of Congress in 1897. A bit of a lonely woman, she has one dear friend and an estranged aunt that she visits infrequently. Having had her voice damaged due to an unfortunate childhood accident, Anna likes to stay quietly too herself working on the requests given to her by the congressmen. Then one fateful day she is called to sit in on a hearing where she and a certain congressman from Maine, Luke Callahan, have a memorable first meeting. Luke is a very hard working politician who is dealing with raising his nephew and controlling his anger which has plagued his family line for years. Determined not to follow in his late fathers footsteps and not to forgive him either, he is instantly intrigued by this quiet librarian with an alluring voice. Deciding that she is the perfect match for him, he intends to pursue and court her. She on the other hand has reservations. But when she uncovers some wrong information concerning the Navys records of the ship that her father supposedly sank with, she turns to Luke for help. Neither of them would ever have guessed what they have begun to uncover. This was a sweet romance and I really liked Lukes tenacity and how he would not give up and let Anna go. The mystery in this story and why exactly the government would go to such great lengths to prevent Anna from knowing the truth about what happened to the ship her father sailed on kept me turning the pages quickly. Again, I really enjoy Ms. Camdens books and her very unique characters and their situations. I have received this book for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.
