A Reader's Opinion: TO DREAM OF LANGSTON by Màiri Norris

Updated: Feb 4, 2020


TO DREAM OF LANGSTON by Màiri Norris takes the reader from the wilds of England to the rolling hills of Kentucky. The author made me feel like I was there on the moors before I was swept away to America's horse farms. Katherine Fairbanks and Jayce Langston are likeable and endearing characters who deserve love, but the best things don't come easily and these two have to fight for what they want most. The author describes the settings in rich detail, and she moves between the romance and drama and adventure smoothly. Màiri Norris stirs up happiness and a touch of suspense in TO DREAM OF LANGSTON. This is a tender story of loss, love, and hope that something beautiful awaits those willing to wait and work against the odds.

From the wild, beautiful landscape of the moorlands of England's North Yorkshire to the rolling bluegrass paddocks of Kentucky, one young woman's passion carries her from love's first bloom to a love everlasting. On the brink of womanhood, Katherine Fairbanks glories in the sweet love of the boy next door. When her life is brutally ripped apart by tragedy, she believes she will never love again and seeks only peace for her life. But betrayal sweeps her across the sea and lands her in the hands of a man she dares not trust. Thoroughbred breeder Jayce Langston has little interest in taking a wife. His time is consumed with the struggle to help his family recover from the devastations of America's Civil War. But when a beautiful, mysterious woman pursued by thugs drops in a prolonged swoon at his feet as he leaves a New York club, Jayce is both captivated and intrigued. He returns with her to his Kentucky stud farm in hopes of learning her identity. Together, they must work against terrifying odds to secure a future where love triumphs over loss.
