Set in the 1800s Clara Endicott was the daughter of wealthy parents but she was best friends with Daniel Tremain who worked in a steel mill alone with his father, he was taking his exam in order to get a scholarship for college when he was called away and his father was under a steam boiler that had exploded up. He was the only one that knew how to keep it from blowing more and to help so they could get his father from under the hot boiler. He got it fixed but his father did not survive. Daniel was very smart in the ways of inventing things so as he had to work and keep his mother and sisters up, he kept working on making things better. They both loved music and even composed some of their own. They loved the classics and played together every day.
Clara was sent to an aunt in England as her parents wanted to get her away from Danial as she was sixteen. She was sent to an aunt but that did not stop her form pressuring her dream as a witter and it really got her in trouble as she exploded the coal mine owners that worked the children under the ground. She found herself in jail and thought that she would have to spend a long time there when her brother came from America and got her out, but she had to be on a ship back to America by sundown. She had not heard from Daniel since she had gone to England ten years ago, and he had not heard from her, even though both of them had written to each other.
When she got back on America soil she soon found out had powerful Daniel had become and the companies that he owned. She still felt as though he was her best friend so when they met in an Opera House that he had built that friendship was still there.
I love the books that are written from the 1800s and this one is no exception. It is well written even though I have not read any of Elizabeth Camden's work before.
This book was sent to me by Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.
