Her dream is within her grasp--but can she leave her past behind?
Luellen O'Connell is stunned when her husband of just one month tells her he is leaving--and his reason devastates her. Deeply wounded by his betrayal, Luellen decides to follow her dream to become a teacher, a desire she had set aside when she married. But can she truly hide her past? Or will it destroy her ambitions forever?
A moving story of tenacity and perseverance, "The Dawn of a Dream" will inspire you to discover and follow your own dreams.
"Her best book yet! Ann Shorey's "The Dawn of a Dream "reminded me of a fine tapestry. A skillful blending of nineteenth-century history, intriguing facts about teachers' training, and vivid descriptions of military life form a background for the story of one woman's determination to achieve her dream, despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Readers looking for a gentle story of love and honor should not miss it."--Amanda Cabot, author of "Tomorrow's Garden"
