I'm far from being into politics and religion but this story was completely moving. I would recommend this book to absolutely ANYONE; especially if you are: 1. Looking to forgive someone 2. Interested in reading about true love There is so many emotions that are in this book that it is just incredible.

These days, couples face problems and pull apart. I enjoyed this novel with the theme of a long-term marriage and forgiveness. As a wife of fifty-two years(!), I know that marriage is like a roller coaster: it goes up and it goes down. I believe that one of the secrets to longevity is to hang on until it levels out. Sally John, a best-selling author, took this premise, mixed in some cloak and dagger intrigue with a smidgen of temptation to illustrate how believable characters might react to some down-turns on their married roller coaster ride. The characters were carefully scripted, and the plot kept me curious. I must say that I had no idea where the story would lead or what decisions would be made. Thank you to Vicky Lynch at Tyndale House Publishers for my copy of this Contemporary Fiction. This is a good one. I recommend it!

Had a hard time putting this one down. Another good read with great characters. Good illustration of how faith enables one to handle life changes, shattered dreams, and hope for new ones. Look forward to reading more by this author.

The story is very interesting involving several characters with different problems, tragedies, betrayal. Sally tells the story of Calissa, Sheridan, Eliot, and Luke, their stories grabbed my heart. I felt like these were my real friends. Sheridan's life will make you thankful and may bring a few tears. Real life troubles. Trying to heal the hurts. There's tension and intrigue. Everything to make a great book.

I didn't know this was considered Christian Lit before I read it. The characters are interesting but often times their actions are a bit too sedentary for my taste so it slowed the pace of the book. Chapters are often very short and there is no sexual explicitness in this book. Anyone who has been married for awhile and having gone through a life-changing event can appreciate the premise of this novel.

Sheridan Cole Montgomery is the wife of Eliot Montgomery, Ambassador of Venzuela, living in Caracas. Her life is parties, meeting famous people, and doing her hearts desire, ministering to the poor women, helping them become a productive part of society. Then her friend is killed and her husband is severely wounded, and not expected to live. From that moment on, their lives are forever changed. Eliot survives, but is severely disabled, and when he is well enough, they move to a small village in the Sierra Madres in central Mexico. Their lives are divided into B.C.E and A.C.E. Before Caracas Event and After Caracas Event. After 13 months, Luke Trayner, the man who had been with them, when Eliot was shot, and who had helped her through the terrible weeks following, when Eliot was so bad, shows up on their doorstep. He'd been hired by her sister, Calissa to find them, and tell her that their father, Senator Harrison Cole, was dying, and she was needed in Chicago. Sharidan first refuses to go, but before long, she is convinced she has no choice. Sally John has written a very complex, interesting, entertaining, and most of all uplifting novel. It deals with the subject of what happens to a marriage, when things happen that people 'didn't sign up for' along the way. And how faith and prayer can help when dealing with these issues. Tyndale House Publishers I recieved no compensation for this review, I was given an Advance Reader Copy of the book to read and review. All opinions expressed here are my own.

When a dream life turns horribly tragic, Sheridan and Eliot Montgomery whisk themselves off to a remote place in Mexico to escape further danger. A year and a half later, someone Sheridan thought she'd never see again finds her and detours her quiet life into a whirlwind of the past--filled with deception, betrayal, and heartbreak. I couldn't put this book down. Ransomed Dreams pulls the reader through intrigue, misfortune, doubt, attraction, loneliness, revelation...and the list goes on! The main characters are flawed, relatable, and layered. The scenes are vivid, almost tangible. And the story filled me with a myriad of emotions, sometimes conflicting. Sally John has a wonderful gift of tugging at readers' heartstrings, jerking the rug from beneath them, and giving them a soft place to land. I L-O-V-E-D this book. Cover: Like it Title: Love it Publisher: Tyndale Publishing Pages: 391 Pace: Steady First Line (prologue): At precisely twelve minutes, thirty-five seconds past ten o'clock in the morning Venezuelan time, Sheridan Montgomery's world ceased to exist.

I just finished reading this book and was captivated by it. The characters seem like real, flawed people who just want to do what's right but are thrust into the middle of a situation that seems impossible. The setting is a small, cozy town in Mexico. It's an intriguing story and I loved the characters... well, most of them. The main character, Sheridan, is living with a husband who is not at all the man she married and finds herself in love with someone else. The reader really doesn't know what choice she'll make until she actually makes it. A poignant, touching read.

"Okay. Thank you." He doesn't bother to ask why Lanistar's name ends with star if she's leader. In the Gray World the leader's name ended with moon (unfortunate for the leader of BlackClan, Sunmoon); he figured that Color World leaders' names ended with star.
