Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Jude Deveraux returns to her roots in this sweeping historical romance with a dazzling story that spans two continents and unites two people who are separated by class, wealth, and education.
In 1766 Scotland, the laird of the clan, Angus McTern, has everything he wants in life. That is, until Edilean Talbot shows up. Breathtakingly beautiful and born of privilege, Edilean represents everything Angus despises. Still, she dazzles him, and when Angus can no longer hide his feelings, she rejects him, leaving him deeply wounded and humiliated. Soon, though, Edilean needs his help to reclaim the gold she inherited from her father. At first Angus refuses, but her haunting beauty and her tears convince him to put aside his pride.
However, when Angus tries to intervene, he is accused of kidnapping and theft. To avoid being prosecuted, he must leave behind all that he knows and escape with Edilean to America. There they will overcome almost insurmountable obstacles as the man who claims the gold for his own endlessly pursues them. Despite all that tries to keep them apart, Angus and Edilean also find a love as wild and free as the land itself. Filled with passion, humor, exquisite detail, and pulse-pounding adventure, Days of Goldis Jude Deveraux at her best.

What the Critics Say

"After dozens of novels, Deveraux has a sure hand evoking plucky heroines, dastardly villains and irresistible heroes, as well as a well-rounded supporting cast… the pace moves quickly and the romance sparks with enough voltage to keep readers turning pages." (Publishers Weekly)
"With the promise of future books about surprising and interesting Edilean, veteran storyteller Deveraux incorporates her trademark sweet and salty characters into a pair of entertaining romances, one past, one present, to create one of her most fun and pleasing tales." (Booklist)
"Family ties, small town values and unexpected love in a picturesque settings have made Deveraux a longtime bestselling author, so it's no surprise that she again delivers.... Readers will find it hard to resist the charms of Edilean, the manor house, the town, the woman of many secrets and, of course, the series to come." (Publishers Weekly)

I do not recommend.

What would have made Days of Gold better?

Unfortunately this story was poorly written. The author dwelt on a problem ( and there where many) for pages and pages and then all of a sudden there was a solution. There was no change there was just a solution. Then at the end when some of the decisions where explained it was so far fetched that it was ridiculous.


Would you ever listen to anything by Jude Deveraux again?

Probably not.


Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances? How does this one compare?
