Publisher's Summary

From the USA Today best-selling author of the Longing for Home series, Valley of Dreams is a new romance novel set in the beloved world of Hope Springs.

Patrick O’Connor has seen far too much of the cruel and unforgiving world. Life has beaten him down relentlessly. Out of hope and out of options, he makes the terrifying and desperate decision to return home to the family he has lied to for years. The family he knows will never forgive him.

Widowed and nearly unable to care for her tiny daughter under the weight of extreme poverty, Eliza Porter jumps at the opportunity to leave behind the slums of New York City for the promise of a new life and a new beginning in the frontier town of Hope Springs.

Fate tosses the two of them together more and more often, while the burden of his tightly-held secrets and the ache of her abandoned dreams pull them further and further apart. Clinging to the whispered possibility of something more than the pain life has offered them thus far will require every bit of hope they can find in this peaceful but precarious valley of dreams.

WOW! Another Beautiful Story w/o Sex and Violence!!

After having listened to all the other books in the series, I was anxious to listen to this latest one. It was worth the wait! I can’t say it was my favorite as they are all my favorite! The author proves that indeed a moving, entertaining, human story can be written without sex, violence, and foul language .. not just once but multiple times!! And Nancy Peterson’s narration is perfect! Her Irish voices are spot on, as well as the American and English, and she is able to switch back and forth seemingly effortlessly. As one other reviewer said, now we will wait for Finnbar’s story.. FINALLY!!!

Please Tell Me There's More to Come!

I've read or listened to this entire series now and I've loved every moment! For me, the Irish dialog connects me to my own Irish ancestry and makes me think of what their lives must have been like. I think also of my mother, who grew up in a log cabin in one of the beautiful valleys of Wyoming. Sara Eden has created such a beautiful blending of the historical struggles with the development of rich characters, each of whom has their own histories to overcome, and she does it all with ease and believability! There are more characters to explore, and I sure hope she takes the time to write their stories as well. If I could, I'd move right into town with them all!

Well written, thoroughly enjoyable, clean romance

I have read the entire series, and this one was one of my two favorites out of the series. I love how this author writes such vivid characters. This series has painted a lovely portrait of the Irish community as well as the beauty of overcoming hardships. I also very greatly appreciate an author who is willing to write such a good quality story without graphic sex, violence, and foul language. It goes to show that such things aren’t necessary in order to make a very interesting and enjoyable read. The author paints a picture of a town that I would love to live in, and people that I would genuinely like to know. I’m going to miss these characters while I wait for her to write the next book… Hopefully finishing Finbar’s story.

Dream of an Irish Hero

Patrick O’Connor‘s lets his family think he is dead for 13 years. Like many us he believes he must stay in the role the family expects. Selfish and brash. And like so many in the war between the states, he hides in a bottle.
Eliza Porter joins her friend for the promise of hope in Hope Springs.
Sarah Eden brings the wonderful Irish character to the American west. Excellent characters.

Entertainment... indeed!

Ms. Eden, your characters were so real and filled with intrigue. Family was epitomised by the wonderful family that had struggles by members but overcame them with a deep love and true devotion to family! Ms. Peterson's performance in bringing them to life was superb! I have listened to it twice and shall keep it handy for frequent repeats! Thank you ever so much for quite the story & performance!
