About the Author

Ann Levingston Joiner is a native of Orange, Texas, where she lived through her mid-thirties. At that time, she was a stay-at-home mom who spent her free time volunteering and writing poetry in a spiral-bound journal. After returning to college during the late nine-teen seventies, she moved her children to Houston and began her career as a high-school English teacher. Teaching in experimental programs, she wrote curriculum, authored textbook supplements and conducted workshops to help students develop their writing skills. Before she retired in 2002, she developed the English and Language Arts portion of her school’s computer-based credit recovery program. During the years of her teaching career, she pursued an interest in comparative mythology, particularly focusing on the works of Joseph Campbell and the Hero’s Journey. After retiring, she moved to San Antonio, Texas, to be closer to her children, and to pursue a new career as a writer. Her published works include two poems, “Lady Audrey” and “The Rest Home,” and a non-fiction work, A Myth in Action: The Heroic Life of Audie Murphy. Now a grandmother, her current interests include genealogical research and writing fictionalized stories about the lives of her ancestors. She is also working on a series of fantasy western novels, set in the Texas Hill Country and involving its legendary Enchanted Rock.

Very enjoyable book-- reminiscent of The Mirror and The Skin Map, with Comanche mysticism thrown in. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Texas history, mysticism, or who just wants a good read.

Format: Paperback
The setting is Texas in the late 1800's. A young Spanish girl meets a young man raised by the Comanche's. They fall in love. Their common goal is the protection of the area surrounding the ancient granite hill, a legendary Enchanted Rock. The energy flowing from this rock affects all those who come in contact with it - a power source.

The struggle for survival includes the effects of the Civil War. The author gives the reader much insight into the lives of the people of the area including the language used at that time. The Spanish and German influence of the settlers is brilliantly woven in the story. Romance is an integral part of this saga and lends credibility to the lives of its characters. Thoroughly researched, the author presents the reader with the politics existing at that time and the relationship with the Native Americans. The Native American influence is revealed in the main character, Daniel He-Who-Rides-Two Horses Thorne-Redstone.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. There are a few minor spelling errors as found in most every novel; however they do not detract from the story. When I finished the book, I wanted more. I look forward to a sequel.

Format: Kindle Edition
Ms. Joiner is an engaging writer, and her story of the Texas Hill Country, that environment and scenery and most especially the characters, Daniel, Maria, and their relationship and the surrounding characters, are so well-crafted that you forget you're reading a story and are yourself there, living it and seeing it all happen. Redstone's Valley is a short novel, a quick and enjoyable read, and historical fiction at its finest.
