I'm half way through this book and loving it. Norma Gail captures your attention with beautifully vivid scenes of the Land of Enchantment (New Mexico) and Scotland - the land of green hills and of blue locs. Then, with tender details of loss, pain, and finally, renewed hope, the excitement of new love unfolds and draws you in. The Author of Life and Love is behind the scenes weaving together their tapesties of real life, and drawing them to Himself. Each day, I look forward to coming home from work to open Land of My Dreams and see what God has in store for the lives of Bonnie and Kieran and their friends. Thank you Norma Gail!

Reading Christian romance is always a pleasure, as you know the scenes will not be overly explicit. Author Norma Gail comes through, yet still manages to fill "Land of My Dreams" with many sigh-worthy scenes that will nourish a romantic heart without offending one's Christian values.

Set in beautiful Scotland, this novel fills a reader's mind with scenes of the lovely countryside, described in such detail that a reader feels they are there. The characters are both charming and flawed, suffering from emotional wounds that have drawn their previous faith into the depths of doubt. Their healing depends on their choices.

There are various twists in the plot that take a reader by surprise, but the ending is satisfying.

While I was caught up in this story, at times it dragged. Rather than 400 plus pages, 300 would have been sufficient to tell the story. The biggest area of interrupting the reading flow was the excessive use of the Gaelic language. While a little goes a long way, too much becomes distracting. I ended up leaping over passages and ignoring it. Having a "Gaelic guide for translation" at the end of the book was not helpful, especially when you're using a kindle.

Overall, a sweet story with a faith-building message of putting the Lord first in our lives.

I ventured into this Scottish realm after coming down from reading several very intricate and dense novels that required a lot of thought and pondering. It was a relief to turn the pages of a book that didn't require anything other than sitting back and letting it carry me into the "Land of My Dreams."

Truthfully, I have never read a book that was so full of the phrase "I love you" or that contained so much shedding of tears by characters. In the first instance, the words upheld the strong romantic narrative. In the second, the tears were nearly always shed out of pure joy rather than anger or sadness. This tale is truly one of romance and the meeting of two souls who are destined to be together. It is also a novel with a strong Christianity influence that applauds the power of prayer, faith, and trust.

Author Norma Gail's characters are strong and nicely rounded out and easy to identify with. I especially enjoyed the Scottish history and the adept interspersing of common phraseology and its meaning in this book. This was done very skillfully without detracting from the storyline.

The author has a knack for writing great descriptions. Readers can probably almost feel the dampness of the endless mist and rain, as well as envision the dress and accents of the people. Personally, as a woman who relishes ethnic fare, I very much enjoyed the enticing descriptions of foods native to Scotland. As far as the story itself, some parts are a bit implausible but that is a matter of opinion rather than a critique.

One thing I found a bit distracting in this book is something that is encountered frequently in novels: descriptive chapter titles.

Lovely story. Would love to read the sequel. The Scottish setting was enchanting. The tension between the two men in Bonny's life represented a realistic struggle between good and evil. So often in our lives the enemy presents as an angel of light masking the evil that lies within. Only time and discernment reveal the truth. Gail's portrayal of this reality in the relationship triangle with the main character and the two men interested in her is excellent.
The story does drag a bit at times and occasionally seems disjointed because of it. But all in all, a great read.

I absolutely enjoyed reading "Land of My Dreams". I confess, I was suppose to keep up with my cousin in reading this book, but I could not stop reading, so, I do not know where she is in these pages of this most delightful book, But I will tell you that once I picked it up, I did not want to put it down, Since she is on vacation, I have not heard from her, but I am sure she feels the same way. I do hope the author writes a sequel. I am waiting in a hopeful mood. Just incase, it was a wonderful read, I wish them well. I do appreciate the fact that when she could have ended the story, the author gave a little bit more, So, I am hopeful that she is in anticipation of continuing with the lives of these most unforgettable characters. This book captured my interest and had a beautiful arc, whereby the conflict and trauma was positioned in a way that made you want to read more of the story. The characters are believable and the honesty with which the story develops is so real that you'll find yourself crying and laughing alongside them. In Scotland, land of my dreams where two broken hearts are mended and become one united in love. Blessed my a mighty God. Congratulations to the author, Norma Gail, for creating this lovely story to help us escape into her characters' world.
