This is one of the better Jude Devereaux romances. The chemistry between lead characters is great. Although there is adult content, I wouldn't hesitate for a teen interested in historical romance to read. I'm not sure where this story fits in the chronology of exactly when it was released in the series by Devereaux, but it is the background story of the town named Edeline This town appears in Lavender Morning, and if I'd known, I would have read Days of Gold first.
The real star in this story is the reader, Davina Porter. She is, hands down, my favorite female reader and I have no doubt I enjoyed the story partially because of her narration. Her diction is superb, the male voices excellent. I highly recommend anyone interested in the world of audio books listen to Davina at least once. In addition to Devereaux books, Davina Porter is the reader for the Outlander series by Gabaldon. The lead male character in Days of Gold is a man named Angus. He has the same voice as Jamie in the Outlander books ... but that won't bother you, in that both characters are authentically represented as Scotsman, kilts included with the brrr of their Scottish brogue.
It's all in this story, the reluctant hero, the feisty beauty, forbidden love, and a wonderful supporting cast of good guys and bad guys. Fun listen, and not likely my last Jude Devereaux.

This book was like Diana Gabaldons Outlander series. It was a good book and I recommend it. The only problem with buying another in the series is that the characters are all different. Instead of following people it seems to follow a town that the original character founded and named. The biggest problem I see in buying another in the series is the change in narrator's. You just can't replace Davina Porter.

What would have made Days of Gold better?
Unfortunately this story was poorly written. The author dwelt on a problem ( and there where many) for pages and pages and then all of a sudden there was a solution. There was no change there was just a solution. Then at the end when some of the decisions where explained it was so far fetched that it was ridiculous.
Would you ever listen to anything by Jude Deveraux again?
Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Yes. She was good.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I was annoyed and disappointed that I paid money to listen to this book.

after initially disliking Davina's voice I have come to appreciate her ability to do any number of voices. she's great to listen to when you get used to it.
loved the book, lived the narration! even liked it more than the first one in the series.
