Catherine flung out her hands as if her flesh could protect the children huddled behind her from musket balls and tomahawks. She raised her head and stared into the war-hardened eyes of a Mohawk warrior. A weapon clutched in each hand, his body smeared with grease paint and blood; he had come to wreak destruction he had come to kill. In 1753, Catherine Wasson and her exten ...more

Blood In The Valley is a fascinating, rich, and layered read - it tells the story of Catherine Wasson/Clyde and her immediate and extended family through several decades, through some of the key points in America's history. This story is based on true people.

I do not read much historical fiction, and as a Nothern European myself, I knew only the very basic timeline of the events described in this book. Much of it was wholly unknown to me. Therefore I am even more fascinated that this kind of st

Elizabeth Merry's review of "Blood in the Valley" by Jean M Roberts, historian, genealogist, blogger and novelist.

I was sorry to come to the end of this book. Although it finished in exactly the right place I was loathe to leave behind all the characters I had come to know. This is a story about the birth of the United States, and although I briefly studied the American War of Independence at school (a long time ago), it was so interesting to read about it in a novel, and to see what it must ha

I loved this book! The story is gripping and kept me on the edge of my seat. The author does a wonderful job of transporting the reader back in time to the beautiful Mohawk Valley. It is set in the years leading up to and during the American Revolutionary War - the birth of our nation. It is an amazing story of resilience and shows a side of the war that I had not heard of before. It captures far more than just the war. It is really a look at the daily struggles and harrowing conditions that peo ...more

This book pays wonderful attention to detail, bringing to life the lives of the peoples who endured the American Revolution. As a result, Blood in the Valley is a spellbinding read. I felt totally immersed in the historical times when Catherine and her extended family lived, and I was caught up in their daily struggles as they dealt with the hardship and loss of home and loved ones that war brought. The strength and perseverance of those early settlers can only be described as extraordinary. One ...more

My love of genealogy was the genesis for my first book, Weave a Web of Witchcraft. My first foray into writing was blogging. It was love at first type.
