Angus McTern is respected by the men of his clan and revered by the women. He takes his duties as laird seriously and has everything he wants in the life, until Edilean Talbot shows up. Strikingly beautiful and born of her privilege, Edilean needs Angus’s help to retrieve the gold she inherited from her father. The treasure is destined for America, but when Angus tries to seize it, he is accused of kidnapping and theft and is forced to leave everything he knows to flee to the new country with Edilean. There they discover almost insurmountable obstacles and a love as wild and free as the country itself.
The second book in the intergenerational Edilean series, which began with the contemporary novel Lavender Morning, Days of Gold, is filled with humor, passion, and adventure. Exciting and masterfully acted, this is Jude Deveraux at his best.

I’m sorry my review is so different from everyone else’s, but I really liked this story. I’ve been reading Jude Deveraux for a good fifteen years (some great, some mediocre, and some worth skipping) and this book comes as close to equaling his classics in my opinion.
No, the second part of the Edilean series did not tie the different stories and timelines together in the way that Deveraux initially hoped it would. Yes, Days of Gold could be read as a standalone story. And yes, J.D. uses his favorite types of hero/heroine characters and his love/hate story. But if the reader is simply allowed to enjoy the story for what it is, it is a classic tale in the tried and true story of J.D. of the Scottish/early American/heartwarming family saga.
I loved that the story had really strong main characters. The reason they were apart for so long seemed silly, but it worked within the story. The “girl fight” was hilarious and unexpected. The “shootout” towards the end was totally unexpected. I didn’t expect it to come full circle, but I was happy with it. This story definitely had some good, cute, and funny moments (especially the mention of Thomas Jefferson).
The love scene in the story was quite heartbreaking, mainly because of all drama and confusion that followed. In true J.D. fashion, this scene was over the top and very… “earthy” (and not just in nature). What also really drew me in was the apparent beginnings of the other Edilean ancestors of the families mentioned in the first story: I just wish J.D. they would spend more time developing their stories instead of repeating the same thing about Angus and Edilean and their game of cat and mouse with Harcourt.
I had a hard time believing that this story was taking place around 1770. Especially after Edilean and Angus arrived in Boston, the characters’ language and actions made it seem like the story might have taken place in the more modern 20’s or 40’s. I’m sorry to say, but a business run by a woman (it sounded more like a modern business) is truly amazing for the year 1770. Right before “Part Two”, the author’s voice made an obvious change from staying in time to being more popular and modern. Honestly, that threw the story out for me.
I felt like I had to keep reminding myself of the RIGHT time frame. I also found it annoying that Deveraux had to sneak in random mentions of Williamsburg. Obviously, this couple will start their town in Virginia, so having random random characters suddenly talking about life in Virginia didn’t make sense. The way Angus got his property in Virginia was also a real disappointment. (A business transaction?? Really??? Not even remotely romantic!!)
Overall, Days Of Gold story was much more solid and entertaining (despite the obvious hiccups) than the previous installment in the Edilean series. Had I read Days of Gold first, I would have been VERY disappointed with Lavender Morning. But this second story was definitely closer to what J.D. made a favourite. I have no idea how Deveraux plans to end this series and I won’t even try to guess, but I’ll probably read it no matter what.
