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)

    "Enjoyable Story"

    While I enjoyed the story I felt it missed several opportunities for drama and was somewhat predictable. The reason I gave it 5 stars is because of Davina Porter. She is my absolute, all-time favorite narrator---especially when there is a Scottish accent involved.

    "Very entertaining"

    This book proved much better than I actually hopes for initially. The first 3/4 of it were great and some scenes were very funny and memorable. It lost steam towards the end though and ended very flat. The narrator did a great job with it.

    "Love Davina Porter and Days of Gold"
    What did you love best about Days of Gold?

    I love the way Davina Porter tells a story. She is amazing at keeping each character alive in the story with individual voice acting. The Days of Gold story was enjoyable and I was hoping to find a continuation and book three. Sad the story didn't continue on.


    What other book might you compare Days of Gold to and why?

    Compares to Outlander


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

    I love the way Davina Porter changes her voice, tone and accent for each character she reads. Davina is the best story teller and after listening to her tell a story... other story tellers seem quite boring.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Finally the couple find each other than the story is over, which there was a book three with Davina telling the story.

    "Horrible."

    Ridiculous story. Silly characters. Nonsensical dialogue. Davina Porter is great as usual, but she cannot overcome the material.
