Camden captivates in this historical romance set in Washington, D.C., just before the turn of the 20th century. Widowed Kate Norton Livingston has always been sweet-natured and competitive. As the eldest of four children born to parents who run one of the most successful boarding houses in the capital, Kate has long been consumed with working for her parents and with her schoolwork—her pride and joy. Her drive for success pits her against Trevor McDonough Kendall, the school outcast, and their battles carry on years after school when she goes to work for his tuberculosis research clinic. Trevor is obsessed with finding the cure for tuberculosis and desperately searching for whomever it is that is sabotaging his research. Together, Kate and Trevor challenge each other to aspire to greater heights in this captivating, emotionally charged journey through America’s past. Romantic tension balances perfectly with a plot energized by medical intrigue, making for a truly satisfying whole. Agency: Seymour Agency. (Aug.)
