Author: Elizabeth Camden
Genre: Historical Fiction, Short Story
Plot: Evelyn White wants to prove to her general father that she’s capable of going to college to study engineering. She’s building a water pump for her greenhouse but doesn’t know how to power it for long periods. Clyde Brixton has been assigned to help Evelyn build the new water pump to work off some demerits at West Point. At first Evelyn is resistant to his help, but slowly she warms up to Clyde. Can Evelyn get past her fear of being a military wife? Can Clyde work off enough demerits to graduate from West Point?
Rating: 4.0 – a sweet, sappy romantic and historical fiction short story
Opinion: This was a super sweet romantic historical fiction book. I enjoyed learning about how military life worked and a little bit about engineering. Evelyn’s fear off marrying someone in the military was understandable considering her past. I so badly wanted Clyde to succeed, which he did, just not in the way I expected. I needed a super sappy book after the last book I read, and this book was what I needed. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes sappy romance and historical fiction.
