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"show more
