"There are authors who touch the heart, but this one grabs hold of your soul." --Romance At Heart Reviews

Down in the Valley is a keeper.”—Catherine Lanigan, author of Romancing the Stone

In Virginia, 1883, some things you can run from. . . some you have to fight.

Pauline Ray is on the run, and she won't get far. With thirty-four dollars, two small children to feed, the cold coming in fast, she has no idea how she'll hide her tracks from her monster of a husband, let alone support her family. But Pauline is done with convention, and with nothing from her old life worth preserving, not even her name, she's free to become a whole new person.

All she has to do is singlehandedly turn a run-down homestead into the haven she and her children need, in a town full of wagging tongues and watchful eyes. But one man is watching her with more than judgment. Pauline would never have considered his scandalous proposal in her days as an obedient, suffering wife and daughter. But "Lizzie" might dare to accept him--his love, his work, and his secrets--and wrest her story toward a happily ever after all her own...

This book has a lot going on. It keeps you turning the page to find out what is going to happen next. I felt like I was right there. Very realistic, some parts may be hard for some readers. This is the first book I have read from this writer. I will be looking for more from this author.

A woman on the run from an abusive husband winds up in a town she's never been in before and within 24 hrs winds up owning her own home. For free. Yeah right. It does need work. A man knocks at the door and offers to fix the roof. She not only invites him to dinner she tell him he can spend the night in the guest room. HER 8 year old thinks this is stupid. She's right. The man has two homes. He's a coal miner and has company housing and he owns a cabin. Fortunately he's the hero and not a child molester or ax murderer. You don't even want to know how the hero wind up with a small fortune. There is also a cast of helpful friends and neighbors who are thrown because they have books of their own which you will now be dying to read. Not hardly. There is no plausibility in this story. At all.

Held my interest. Good story line. Not phony like so many romance novels are. Would recommend.
