For every marriage that takes an unexpected turn.

Ransomed Dreams

With the flash of a bullet, Sheridan Montgomery’s world ceased to exist.

Her husband, Eliot—the U.S. Ambassador to Venezuela—may have physically survived the assassination attempt, but he would never be the same again. And Sheridan had accepted that neither would their marriage.

But when a man that Sheridan had hoped to never see again brings new information about her past, it spins her life down a side road—a path that makes her question everything she thought she knew about herself, her husband, and their life together.

Does a promise last forever when everything has changed? With honesty and grace, best-selling author Sally John tells a moving story about the unexpected detours our lives can take and the hope that it’s never too late to find our way back.


“A wonderful story about the twin truths that forgiveness is costly but love can meet the expense head on. Sally John is an insightful, inspiring storyteller.”

Susan Meissner, author of The Shape of Mercy

'“Ransomed Dreams” is for anyone who has ever wanted to walk away from a difficult marriage, who has ever felt hopeless, or who has lost a dream. It’s an inspiring story of faith and emotional healing."
Michelle Rayburn (New Auburn, WI)
"For anyone who thinks that fiction is simply an indulgence to escape reality, this book will be a huge surprise. The story will resonate with anyone who has ever found himself in the midst of unexpected and disappointing life circumstances and asked, "How did I get here, and how can I escape?" ... The story is dramatic and action-packed, but it is also full of life-changing truths. This is surely one work of fiction that will be worth your time!"
