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)

    Yes. Jude Deveraux is a wonderful storyteller and it was so much fun listening instead of reading. Loved it.

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

    She did a great job of reading and I loved the accents.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I didn't get to but I would have liked to

    "pure romantic escapism"
    What made the experience of listening to Days of Gold the most enjoyable?

    A great Jude Deveraux classic, with all her elements of romantic fantasy and adventure.


    Did Davina Porter do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Davina didn't always change her voice enough to distinguish between characters, I found myself losing track sometimes, and her voice was too deep for the character of Edilene.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Jude D's stories.....always a great talented and strong female who has to fight for her very handsome dreamboat of a man!

    "Excellent narrator"

    I gave this a lot of stars because of the narrator; I don't remember much of the story. Davina Porter could read the phone book and make it interesting.

    "Great Performance, Weak Story"
    What disappointed you about Days of Gold?

    Great performance, weak story. That just about sums it up and I don't have too much else to say. Perhaps, I will add that the main characters are daft and irritating, and when Angus goes off to do his own thing, the story becomes so disconnected from the story and without apparent point that I could barely pay attention to what was going on.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jude Deveraux again?

    Not likely, unless someone recommends me one with passion.


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    She is an amazing narrator. The two main annoying characters were even perfectly described with annoying personification.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Days of Gold?

    Most of part two.

    "Good story"

    The overall story was good but drug on at times and the stupidity of some of the characters was irritating. Did not care for the narrator the male voices were too pretty.
