Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In 1859, Louisiana posed various challenges to its citizens, no matter their color, in LaGreca’s thought-provoking second novel (after Noble Vision, 2005), a murder mystery set during a tumultuous period in American history. Tom Edmunton plans to set the world on fire with his tractor invention, which will mechanize farming. A son of the South, he spent a dozen years in the North, which changed not only his speech but also some of his beliefs, including those about slavery. Rachel Barnwell is a spirited, yet still ladylike, senator’s daughter with high hopes for a future with Tom on her family’s sprawling plantation. Yet when Tom unexpectedly saves a beautiful runaway mulatto slave named Solo, he finds himself drawn to her fiery pride and refusal to consider herself less than human. Then a shocking murder sets into motion inextricably linked events and revelations that will change life as they know it for Tom, Rachel, and Solo. Bogged down by long narrative passages and overly dramatic writing, the tale nevertheless intrigues and should attract readers interested in historical fiction set in the antebellum South. --Julie Trevelyan

Review

"Old ways do not fade into the night quietly. A DREAM OF DARING is a novel set on the dawn of the industrial revolution. Tom Edmunton builds a proto-tractor, and tries to bring a world of change about Louisiana with his invention. But the whiplash is hard, as a loved one is killed, and his invention is stolen. [As Tom is] faced with a crossroads and the charms of multiple women, A DREAM OF DARING is an enticing blend of mystery and romance, much recommended reading."

---Midwest Book Review

"Throughout the narrative, LaGreca masterfully creates metaphors to explore her key themes. . . . A DREAM OF DARING is suspenseful. The crime at the center of the narrative will keep the reader guessing until the final revelation. It is also thought-provoking. LaGreca's exploration of how people respond to, and sometimes reject, change and progress is relevant for all generations."

---ForeWord Reviews

"In 1859, Louisiana posed various challenges to its citizens, no matter their color, in LaGreca's thought-provoking second novel (after Noble Vision, 2005), a murder mystery set during a tumultuous period in American history. . . . [This tale] should attract readers interested in historical fiction set in the antebellum South."
