Piwi Mama reviews: Where Treasure hides.

This weekend it was nice to have an excuse to read an good Novel!

Where Treasure Hides by Johnnie Alexander Donley

From Amazon: Book Description: Artist Alison Schuyler spends her time working in her family’s renowned art gallery, determined to avoid the curse that has followed the Schuyler clan from the Netherlands to America and back again. She’s certain that true love will only lead to tragedy—that is, until a chance meeting at Waterloo station brings Ian Devlin into her life. Drawn to the bold and compassionate British Army captain, Alison begins to question her fear of love as World War II breaks out, separating the two and drawing each into their own battles. While Ian fights for freedom on the battlefield, Alison works with the Dutch Underground to find a safe haven for Jewish children and priceless pieces of art alike. But safety is a luxury war does not allow. As time, war, and human will struggle to keep them apart, will Alison and Ian have the faith to fight for their love, or is it their fate to be separated forever?

I was expecting an historical romance from the description but there was also plenty of drama and adventure (and it doesn’t let up until the end). It isn’t just about a Woman waiting for her beau to return from war. It is about the realities for them as they each fight the Nazi regime.  The story is set over multiple years and in multiple countries but the chapters switch easily between the characters.
This novel is Historical Christian romance. The likeable main characters, history and adventure alone make me believe it could be enjoyed by anyone looking for a page turner. There is discussion of prayer and faith by the characters but even if you are not into Christian fiction it is  not  preachy.  If, like me, you do enjoy Christian inspiration then you will enjoy the mediation/discussion questions at the end of the book that really get you thinking about your relationship with God and his plans for your life. I would recommend it to other Mama's out there. Sit down with a Mug of coffee and read it. You will be inspired, entertained and can brush up on WW2 history.
