Her family is financially well-off, there is an abundance of everything except harmony.
As a child, she is hurt, as a teen insulted, and as a woman, abused and discarded. Haunted by her extreme obesity, Val slips into a world of reckless debauchery and alcoholism and substance abuse of all kinds. All other kinds discord ran like wild fire through her life in much the same destructive manner.
Is there hope for her? Can she redeem herself? The only soul she can turn to is her childhood friend, who is in fact a local servant girl. Can her friend guide and mentor her, and eventually pull her out of her bottomless pit of despair?
With an epic sweep that spans well over forty years, Valley of Victory is a touching tale of one individual's fight against the society, its hypocrisy and a system that is rotten to the core. It is the moving story of a woman's determination to take charge, change herself and the world around her.
And along the journey, Valley of Victory asks questions that are as simple as their answers are complex. Who are we? Why are we here? What is our connection with our Higher Power? It tackles issues head on, with a sharpness that pierces the heart and a bluntness that dents the soul.
Leading us to the final question: If all human beings long to attain Peace, why is Love the most ignored emotion?
