Leon's most adroit balance of teasing mystery, Brunetti's droll battles with his coworkers and higher-ups, and intimations of something far deeper and darker behind the curtain. The appeal of Guido Brunetti, the hero of Donna Leon's long-running Venetian crime series, comes not from his shrewdness, though he is plenty shrewd, nor from his quick wit. It comes, instead, from his role as an everyman. Not so different from our own days at the office or nights around the dinner table.

This was a very interesting book by Bonnie Leon. Each one of the characters had to deal with alot of things. The Haspers lives changed for the better. It was interesting learning about the depression and all the worry and heartache it caused. Alaska was not affected as much by it. Lauren did a good thing when she stayed with her family. They all met some interesting people on the way. They experienced heartache as well as joy. When Adam first came into the picture I thought he was awful pushy and full of himself. He kind of started to change somewhat as the story went on. Robert Lundeen the other young man Lauren met I liked him alot better he was a real gentleman. He would have been good for Lauren if ADAM hadn't been there. But Adam needed God in the worse way he was depending on himself and what he could do. It was nice to see Lauren making a friend byway of Celeste when she got to Alaska. Celeste father was harsh toward the people who had come. He even caused somewhat of a rift with his own daughter. Who was in love with Robert Lundeen who was one of the new people. Robert didn't even know about Celeste feelings but Lauren did. So when Robert asked Lauren to marry him after Adam left it somewhat shocked her because she had nice feelings toward Robert but didn't love him like she did ADAM. But it took ADAM going overseas and finding God to see how much he needed and loved Lauren. Hopefully Robert will eventually find out how much Celeste loves him and hopefully her dad won't get in the way. I hope this series continues on because I want to hear more abot Robert, Celeste, Luke, Alex, Mattie and Brian and also how in turned out for Adam and Lauren. It left you kind of not knowing how it turned out for everyone else.

I liked that it was about a historical time for our country....the Great Depression that effected everyone....city or farm dweller. I grew up in the country....end of that era...and know that we were some of the lucky ones....never hungry....alWays had gardens and canning and enough animals for meat. And my mother always fed the tramps coming through....I remember friends said they had a network telling others who would give them food....and our house was surely on that channel...and mother was proud to be on that list. And I always enjoy reading about Alaska....and the brink of the Great War. We were just hearing about Hitler and his crazy and bazaar beliefs back then. And the love triangle....a. Very good book!

This was a terrific book. The characters are all fiction but the story is based on a true government experiment during the dust bowl - pre-WW II days. The government offers a new start to some farmers who have lost everything in the dust bowl in a selected few states. They were from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan. They are given transportation, food and supplies to the Matanuska Valley in Alaska including 47 acres each. They must start over and in five years begin to repay the debt. Laurel comes from a very large family and meets Robert who is a young adult taking care of his widowed mother and his sisters. She also meets Adam a reporter who is hired to tell the story of this experiment. It is Christian fiction at its best and is the first book in a series. .

I just finished reading Valley of Promises, and was stunned by the excellent story. I love to read fast-paced, powerful stories like this one, with rich characterizations, a realistic God-loving theme intrinsic to the warp and woof of the plot (not the too frequent tokenism of today’s Christian novels), well-crafted multiple male and female points of view, a light and patient yet beautiful touch in descriptions, and compelling emotional magnetism. Nowadays, it’s easy to quit books (especially e-books) at the first bump in the road—something rubs our fur the wrong way and we put the book aside and never pick it up again. I suspect very few modern novels are read through to their final page. With a Type A male personality like mine, one tiny “girly-girl” description can shiver me timbers. And I ran into one tiny bump in a female P-O-V scene that made me lay this book down last night. However, I couldn’t resist the emotional magnetism I mentioned earlier, and ran back to finish it in a 4-hour spurt today. Worthy of more than 5 stars.

I like Bonnie Leon's books so much that the best advice I can give anyone about the ones I have read is see for yourself. I was disappointed to find the other books in the Matanuska Series are not on Kindle. One of the reasons I love this book so much is that I have visited the Colony Farms area and have a friend who was raised on one of the farms which her parents had purchased years after they were first settled. I would have loved to grow up there in spite of the challenges.

This is a very good series. Living here near Palmer, it is very interesting to me to know how different it was, or could have been. Except for the
mosquitos, they are the same. Maybe not so bad because of the lack of trees.

This story was very sad in many ways and cold weather of Alaska and the beginnings of a new colony there. The characters were easy to connect with and the Lord was a integral part of their lives for most. I recommend the author
Good read..it was a book that held my interest..very true to life..sadness along with happiness defeat along with triumph...liked it a lot!!
