Within Golden Bands by Norma Gail
"Anyone can write a love story where the man and woman fall in love and live happily ever after. What Norma Gail wove together was a tale of deep commitment, of facing hardships and losses together, and triumphing over a myriad of tremendously difficult circumstances because of an abiding faith in Christ. Her description allowed me to almost smell the clover on the hillside, see the diamond shimmers on the lake, and hear the bleating of the newborn lambs. There was beauty, intrigue, suspense, heartbreak, faith, and a deep abiding family love strewn throughout this amazing tale. I could NOT put it down!" - Amazon review ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "Within Golden Bands is a fast-paced romance/mystery that takes the reader on an exciting trip to Scotland." - Amazon review ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "This book is filled with all the amazing qualities of a winsome romance and suspense Christian novel." - Amazon review ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "A beautiful and heart-rending love story." - Amazon review ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "This is an easy-to-read, well-written book that has a nice blend of romance, suspense and mystery." - Amazon review ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "It’s so refreshing to read a story with love, family, mystery, and drama that at the same time is spiritual as well."" - Amazon review 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.

For Kieran, and especially for me as a new wife, romance often shows up in those painful moments when life beats us down. I suppose that's why I tend to think of our story as uplifting women's fiction. Romance in the midst of a miscarriage seems so superficial. What I needed during my moment of tears was Kieran's love. Though our story may not be what some think new contemporary romance should be, I've always felt our time in Fort William, Scotland prepared us, as newlyweds, for the tough times that came with life on a farm. Is our story popular adoption fiction, popular romantic suspense, popular Christian marriage fiction, popular family secrets fiction, or popular rural romance? You decide.

Kieran fears the kidnapper who stalks me has returned and . . .
