Newly married Bonny MacDonell finds the transition from American college professor to Scottish sheep farmer’s wife more difficult than she expected. When her miracle pregnancy ends in a devastating miscarriage, she fears her husband's reaction will hurt more than the loss of their child.
But Kieran never shows up at the hospital. When found, he is beaten and unconscious. The only memory of his attacker is the words, “Get off my land.” Reeling from the threat to her husband and the loss of their child, Bonny struggles to hold her marriage together. When faith in love is not enough, where do you turn?
You know an author is talented when they can convince readers that a country is one of their main characters! This is exactly what Norma Gail has done in Within Golden Bands. As she tells the love story of Bonny and Kieran MacDonell. she portrays the magic and beauty of Scotland in a way that made me want to visit there even more than I had before.
I received an e-copy of this book from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
