Publisher's Summary

Alone and betrayed, American professor Bonny Bryant longs for a haven of peace. She accepts a position at a small Christian college in Fort William, Scotland, craving escape from her painful past. The passionate love which develops when she meets fellow professor and sheep farmer, Kieran MacDonell, is something she never anticipated. 

Kieran harbors a deep anger toward God in the face of his own devastating grief. When Bonny’s former fiancé reenters her life, Kieran’s loneliness draws him to a former student. 

How will Bonny decide between her rivals? Can they set aside the past to make way for a future, or will it drive them apart? 

Land of My Dreams spans the distance between New Mexico’s high desert mountains and the misty Scottish Highlands with a timeless story of overwhelming grief, undying love, and compelling faith.

Romantic story with a religious tone

Bonny is left heartbroken after the death of her parents and her fiance leaving her. She decides to move from America to Scotland to start over. She meets Kieran there who has his own past hurts but they end up healing each other. When Bonny's ex tries to win her back, it causes some drama. Who will she choose?

This was a cute romantic story. The descriptions of Scotland were very vivid and made my imagination picture the scenes like a movie. I didnt like the religious aspect embedded therein but otherwise liked the story. There were a few 'edit' issues in the recording whereby some sentences repeated but these things happen.

Holly is an excellent narrator with awesome intonation. She even sang a bit in this one and it was epic! Holly really made the story more enjoyable for me.

Long way home

Land of My Dreams
A Home for My Heart
: Norma Gail


This is a Christian romance fiction featuring two broken people that aren't looking for a second chance. Bonny Bryant has lost everything. Her parents died within months of each other. Her fiancee broke their engagement the day after her father's funeral. Kieran MacDonell's wife died in childbirth along with their son. Both have lost their faith and are angry with God.

When Bonny gets the chance to leave New Mexico to teach in Scottish Highlands, she meets Kieran. This is the story of their roller coaster friendship and romance. They will have others interfering, as well as their own misgivinings. It seems like a long listen, but the story takes time to evolve.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed by Holly Holt.

Beautiful, Uplifting Scottish~U.S. Romance

A poignant Christian romance that takes the heart on a rollercoaster of experiences from New Mexico to the Scottish Highlands. 30 year old broken hearted and spirituality disillusioned Bonnie heads to Scotland to teach at Ft. William University for a year. While getting settled, she meets Killien, a 40 year old emotionally devastated and spiritually disillusioned Scot who lives in the Highlands and tutors at the University. Their romance is beautiful as they begin to heal. But emotional and spiritual healing are complex issues and my heart almost couldn't take all the issues that arose!! The NM fiancee was an idiot who just drove me nuts and sometimes I wondered about the advice from the two best friends.

As much as I appreciated the lessons being learned and enjoyed the story overall, I felt it needed to be tightened up a little as the drama and trauma goes on a little long. But this is a beautifully uplifting book about the importance of turning to, relying on and heeding God's directions in our lives. It is 100% clean and while as in life, we cannot always see how there could possibly be a happy ending, I assure you, it will be there.💗

Holly Holt does a lovely job narrating the novel, with her soothing, melodic voice. The brogues were not always consistent but it didn't interfere with my ability to enjoy the story.
