All of us have dreams. When Luellen marries she is ready to put her dreams on hold. But she learns a secret her husband has kept from her and moves ahead with her dream.
Part way through her College Career to earn her teaching career she discovers she is pregnant. She tries to hide it so she can continue toward her certificate of teaching. Married women were not allowed a teaching certificate in the 1800s. However she is soon found out. But she still fights for her right to continue.
About the time she is close to graduate, her father takes ill. She puts her family ahead of her dreams. But then events turn around and she returns to school not knowing if she would or would not get to finish her dream.
There are many events in this book I am not putting here because I want you to discover them but they are worth reading.
This is a book hard to put down. It will inspire you to go after your dreams.
