Publisher's Description

The daughter of a powerful army general, Evelyn White dreams of attending college and vows she will never marry a man in uniform. . . . which is why West Point cadet Clyde Brixton presents a problem. Clyde's brilliance in the new field of electrical power has him poised for a promising career in the Army's Corps of Engineers, but his penchant for racking up demerits threatens his chances for graduation.

Evelyn and Clyde feel instant attraction toward one another as they spend one magical summer together. As their lives become more entwined, their friend Romulus's begins to come undone. When faced with helping Romulus at the expense of his own future, which one will Clyde choose? And when nothing turns out the way Evelyn planned, where will that leave her own future?

    Camden specializes in female characters who pursue unusual careers--and a female engineer in the late 1800's certainly qualifies as unusual. Granted, Evelyn isn't technically allowed to pursue engineering, but she has an astounding knowledge of hydraulics for someone self-taught. I really liked Clyde, who is willing to sacrifice what is important to him for the better of others. The glimpse of Westpoint was interesting, especially after reading Siri Mitchell's novel Flirtation Walk, which also took place there, albeit a couple decades earlier.

    I read this story with the knowledge that the upcoming book From This Moment is about Evelyn's cousin Romulus, and though he is not the focus of this novella, it gives us an ample look into his strengths and faults, his quirky personality. I certainly look forward to reading his story and finding how he has changed in the intervening years!

    Summer of Dreams introduces some of the lead characters for Ms. Camden's upcoming novel, From This Moment. Evelyn White has never spent more than six months in any one home. She has spent her childhood living in the guest rooms of a wide assortment of family members as her father travels the country in his role as the general in charge of the Armys Corps of Engineers. For one glorious summer, she finally spends several months in her father's home, under the supervision of her admittedly idiosyncratic cousin, Romulus. Together, they build an exceedingly complex greenhouse, but they lack the necessary technical skills to fully achieve their vision. Fortunately, one of the local West Point cadets is assigned to their project. Clyde Baxter has an incredible mind for engineering feats, particularly in cutting-edge electrical technology. He has a promising career ahead of him, as long as he can stay out of trouble for long enough to complete his training. Their summer together offers each one an unparalleled opportunity to explore their dreams, even while Clyde and Evelyn find an unexpected bond with one another. When the summer ends and real life challenges come their way, each must choose to accept their fate or have faith and forge a new path.

    Ms. Camden returns with a unique tale that will captivate her readers. Summer of Dreams brings the excitement of late-nineteenth century technology to life, alongside the mesmerizing backdrop of the famed West Point Academy.

    Overall, Summer of Dreams once again captured my attention as one of Ms. Camden's excellent stories. The novella offers a fascinating introduction to a new cast of characters, as well as a different setting than many of her past books. Readers who enjoyed Siri Mitchell's recent novel, Flirtation Walk, will appreciate the intriguing comparison with Ms. Camden's depiction of West Point Academy nearly three decades later. I was very interested to see how both Ms. Mitchell and Ms. Camden focused on the Academy's engineering emphasis, rather than a pure military role. Within Summer of Dreams, Ms. Camden also presents an extended excerpt of From This Moment, revealing some of the fascinating cross-over moments that feature both Evelyn and Romulus White nearly ten years after the events of Summer of Dreams. However, the novella serves as a strong stand-alone story that is equally enjoyable with or without the accompanying (and forthcoming) novel.

    Thanks!
