Luellen OíConnell gave up her dream of attending teacherís college when she met Brenden. They had a whirlwind romance and married, despite her motherís warning, ďmarry in haste, repent at leisure.Ē Now just married a month, Luellen is preparing for a special celebration with her husband when he comes home with stunning news.

Deeply wounded, Luellen takes back her maiden name, takes her savings and heads off to school, despite her families objections. But fate seems to be against her. Luellen finds herself fighting at every turn to be able to realize her dream. A dream that may or may not become realityÖ

The Dawn of a Dream is the third book in the At Home in Beldon Grove series by Ann Shorey, and I feel this is the best book in the whole collection. This book stands alone, so you donít need to read all the books in the series to be able to start this one.

Luellen is a very realistic heroine, and her situation won my heart and my sympathy immediately. I couldnít help but care for her and cheer her on. The hero in the book isnít as well done, but he is a sweetheart, and one canít help but like him as well. If you are looking for a historical, donít miss The Dawn of a Dream. It will inspire you to follow your own dreams.
