Londonderry Dreaming shows how bitterness and resentment spill down to the next generation. The wheels they set in motion can cause much suffering and broken relationships. I loved this story of forgiveness and redemption. Five stars!
Five years ago Keith Wilson and Naomi Doyle were a young couple in love, but to Keith’s shock and subsequent heartbreak, Naomi’s grandfather had suddenly stepped in to whisk her back to the States to assist her in setting up a career as an artist. Naomi felt she had no choice at the time than to break up with Keith. And now five years later she has been called back to Ireland in a letter by Keith’s grandmother, only to discover that she has passed away. Keith and Naomi work together to try and solve the mystery surrounding the curious painting in his Grandmother’s attic and as they do, they are at a loss as what to do with their feelings for each other that have resurfaced – as neither believes their love is reciprocated.
‘Londonderry Dreaming’ is an enjoyable and sweet tale of friendship and forgiveness, of the rekindling of love, and of the importance of communication. It is a journey that takes the reader to both Ireland and the States to rediscover faith in God and in the power of love. And it’s also the story of a wise old grandmother that will not be kept silent, even from the grave! I highly recommend this engaging Irish love story that’s as enchanting with the romance as it is with the mesmerizing visit to the Emerald Isle.
This was a beautiful story about how that verbal communication can keep bitterness from taking root. How learning to communicate your thoughts and feelings can keep you from being controlled by others.
I loved how both Naomi grew in confidence and self-assurance in both her spiritual walk and her human relationships as she learned to verbalize her feelings to her Lord and those around her. I think that was the best part of the gift that Ruth gave to her.
I enjoyed the clean romance and the clean language in this novel. The beauty of the Irish setting added to the romance. I could hear the brogue in the speech of the Irish characters in the book. Ms. Lindsay created believable, loveable characters. I would’ve like to have known Ruth myself.
If you enjoy reading clean romance, you will definitely want to read Londonderry Dreaming. I gave it 5 stars out of 5.
Thank you to the author Christine Lindsay for providing a copy of the novel in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
The story opens with Keith trying to sort out his grandmother’s possessions, after her recent death, and while he is dealing with this an old love appears at the door. Apparently his grandmother had invited Naomi to come and she spend some time with her in Northern Ireland, and she has a gift for her.
There are surprises here that abound, and find some bitter individuals who try and manipulate the lives of their loved ones. This is what happened to this young couple, and the love they had for one another five years ago.
Is Keith’s grandmother playing cupid from the grave, in some ways yes, and in others she is trying to lead them down the path to Christ. Loved how she touched all of her loved ones with notes and charts before her demise, and with letters after.
This is a very quick 96-page read, with a lot packed into a few short pages. Once you pick this one up, you won’t put it down until the last page is turned. I really enjoyed this story.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Pelican Book Group, and was not required to give a positive review.
