About Beyond All Dreams

Anna O’Brien leads a quiet and predictable life as a map librarian at the famed Library of Congress. Her quiet life slowly changes when she stumbles across the mystery of a ship that disappeared at sea. All of her attempts to uncover information is thwarted by others in positions of power. 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 career was shadowed in scandal. Eager to help the beautiful and intriguing librarian, he joins forces with Anna to solve the mystery of the lost ship. Opposites in every way, Anna and Luke are drawn to each other despite all the strict rules forbidding Anna from any romantic entanglements with members of Congress.
From the halls of the Capitol where powerful men shape the future of the nation to the 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 that they have ever dreamed of?
My Thoughts
I fell in love with this story from the first chapter. I am a huge history fan so this novel won its way to my heart immediately!
Anna is a bright young woman living in a time that was quite difficult for women. She wanted to succeed in her career that so many women could not obtain or if they did as soon as they were married they were forced to leave their position. She could not and would not let anyone ruin her position. She had given up on love and finding a partner as not only would this ruin her chance of working in the Congress Library but she was also much older than typical young women of marriageable age.
Luke has his own family history of scandal as well as his own. He is controversial and so very different form the men in Anna’s life.¬† Behind his rough exterior he is a man of compassion, intelligence and kindness.
From start to finish, Beyond All Dreams is a fantastic, engaging read that you will enjoy over and over again.

Rating: 5/5
