In Beyond All Dreams by Elizabeth Camden we meet Anna O'Brien - a Library of Congress librarian. Anna has had tough past and that has made her reserved. Enter the handsome congressman Luke Callahan who's recent scandal lands him at the library and in need of help. When these two meet sparks fly and they both need time to see if they are willing to let things blossom. In the meantime Anna discovers a government coverup and has to decide if she will fight to bring it all to light - can Luke help her?
I loved these characters! They were both witty and never let anyone get the best of them. Both had to fight from a young age to get to where they were in their adult lives. The two together engage in such banter that it had me chuckling along with the characters! I love how this story had a good plot. Camden write believable characters with very believable stories. It was also a nice historical glimpse into what congress and the Library of Congress would have looked like in 1897.
What I loved best about this book is that both character's had rough childhoods but they didn't let that be an excuse to make nothing of their lives. They both overcame the odds and went on to have great jobs and be productive members of society. Abuse didn't define them it empowered them!

About the book:
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?
