Excellent content, well written, has purpose, story moves along at a decent pace. There’s not chapters about different characters therefore easy to follow the lives and background of the two main characters. I recommend to anyone who likes a well written old fashion love story.

The first book I read from Elizabeth Camden started off really well but in the end the suspense folded like a plastic summer chair. Thus, I was not sure what to expect from this book.

This was a lovely story, the plot was interesting and the characters believable. . BUT I was still disappointed with the overall mysterious revelation. I confess that, I was expecting something more sinister to happen given the reaction the heroine sustained from the navy when she unearthed inconsistences in their report. However, I will agree that the mystery flowed well with the events of that time.

I really like the characters in this book, especially the hero. He is a confident, handsome, successful man who is passionate about his beliefs and is not afraid of adversity. (SPELLS LEADER) Moreover, a man who is deeply intellectual, possess lively wit, straightforward and is romantic. I wondered who gave Elizabeth Camden inspiration to create this character? Granted, he had these wild moods which had to be ‘calmed by the ever gracious heroine but those details were only written for the reader to like her better..and to have a woman bring a perfect balance to her man.

I did like the heroine except At the end I admit I started to get annoyed with her.

Having a degree in history, Elizabeth Camden adds many terrific historical details to her works. The setting is described very nicely and the era developed accurately. Looking beyond the historical aspect, about halfway through the story, there is a dramatic shift in the characters' development. This shift causes the reader to loose some faith in the author's narrative ability; however, the plot continues to pull the attention of the reader. Overall, this book is a nice read.

Overall, Beyond all Dreams was not exactly what I was expecting which was both a good and bad thing because, while I enjoyed all the characters, the mystery, the romance and the politics, it was a bit dull and boring as well, which was disappointing.

I may look skinny and weak, but if you hurt Anna, I will metaphorically kill you, burn your village, and sow your fields with salt. Is that clear? Pg 165
