In Ransomed Dreams by Sally John, Sheridan Montgomery has grown used to living an isolated life in Mexico with Eliot, her husband who was crippled both physically and emotionally by a severe bullet wound eighteen months earlier. Then Luke Traynor, the man who saved her life the day Eliot was shot, re-enters her life. He brings news of her father’s stroke, and Sheridan is yanked from the safe haven she created for herself. She must confront the truth of her father’s past, while battling the growing feelings she has for Luke.

Sally John tells a story filled with human anguish and deep struggles. Her characters, especially Sheridan, are well rounded and endearing to readers. The story’s plot may at first resemble a tale too often visited—a woman falling in love with another man because her marriage has grown stale. However, John’s story is surprisingly refreshing and completely upholds biblical truths of faithfulness in marriage.

Ransomed Dreams shows the stark reality of a woman forced to live a life she never would have chosen. Sheridan must learn to “listen for Jesus,” as her mother always told her. Verses such as Jeremiah 33:3—“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know”—are clearly reflected here. Readers of this book will not only enjoy a good story, but they may also learn valuable truths along the way. – Ruth Anne Burrell, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Publisher's Weekly

John (Safe Harbor series) sets her new novel in the world of diplomacy. Sheridan Montgomery is the wife of Eliot Montgomery, ambassador to Venezuela. When an assassin’s bullets cripple Eliot and wound his wife, the traumatized couple retreats from the world to an off-the-map hamlet in Mexico. Sheridan is called from there when her father, a U.S. congressman from whom she is estranged, is dying. She returns to her family home in suburban Chicago to confront her past and make some decisions about her present, which includes her atrophied marriage to an invalid. The tangled relationships are engrossing and evolving, especially between Sheridan and her sister, Calissa, and between Sheridan and Luke Traynor, the government man who saved her life in Venezuela and returns to complicate her life. The criminal elements in the plot are less compelling than the human elements. The religion element required in Christian fiction is unobtrusive and natural to a story about healing. A thoughtful and engaging novel. (July) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    LOVED this incredible story

    The opening scene of this book (in the prologue) captured me. Sheridan finds herself face down in the dirt, being held to the ground, and staring at her broken watch that reads twelve minutes, thirty-five seconds past ten o'clock. Her husband lays beside her, his shirt turning crimson red.

    I couldn't put this book down. I loved the setting (mexico) and believable characters. Sheridan is so easy to relate to, and so human. She experiences conflicting emotions that I feel any woman would feel in situations she experiences - though many wouldn't admit to it.

    The characters were real, the family relationships were complex, and the emotions were raw. I loved every second of this book and highly recommend it.

    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.

    Sheridan is married to an ambassador to Venezuela. When both are injured, they hide out in Mexico. Sheridan then goes to Chicago, where her estranged father is dying. She must deal with several relationships while there.

    This is a decent book, but I was rather bored with the storyline. Don't know why but I had a hard time sticking with the book. I am glad all the secrets hinted at during the book were revealed at the end.

    I was absolutely riveted to this book after I started it! The plot was incredibly woven in all the lives explored in this absorbing book. I may read it again, just to see the details as they work together (now that I know the ending). Fabulous read!

    Continued to hold my interest. Well written. Wonderful relationships between characters although could get "testy" at times. I could just feel the locations the sisters went and lived: tiny Mexican mountain town, Chicago,etc.
