Within Golden Bands

By Norma Gail


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?

Book Takeaway:

This book shows that when we focus on the storm rather than the love of God we lose our way. When we focus on God, who understands our pain, the loss will only make us stronger.

Why the author wrote this book:

This is a sequel to my 2016 release, Land of My Dreams. It continues the story of Bonny MacDonell, an American college professor who married a Scottish sheep farmer, and learned that the greatest blessings come when you leave the familiar behind and take a step of faith.
Of course, I want to entertain. As a Bible study leader and devotional writer, I have seen a lot of people struggle with trusting God when hard times come, and I have struggled myself. It is helpful to use real-life situations to illustrate biblical principles.
Good fiction can teach valuable spiritual lessons. People who would never attend a Bible study will read a novel, and they can learn how to live the Christian life. A novel is a very non-threatening way to introduce someone to the gospel or get a spiritual message across. It might open someone open up to talk about things they might not otherwise discuss.
