When Valleys Bloom Again by Pat Jeanne Davis is a fabulous debut novel set during WWII. It is full of Godly wisdom and insight.
During a time of war, people need God more than ever. “Where are you, Lord, in all this?” We cannot always see Him but Jesus has promised to never leave us.

This is a very well written book. It has suspense, drama and romance and keeps you turning the pages to see what happens next. I highly recommend this book. I received a copy from the author, but was not required to write a review. This is my honest opinion.

This book was a wonderful mix of a WW2 story from both the British and American views. The characters were drawn expertly, and the inner dialogue of each one described the tensions between them. I am looking forward to a follow-up novel.
I received a digital copy of this book from the editor, and a favourable review was not required.
