"For a memorable story of life as an indentured servant in the late 18th century, look no further than Rita Gerlach's Beyond the Valley. Readers will root for Gerlach's heroine, who surmounts horror and heartbreak to find hope and happiness beyond the valley.
Amanda Cabot, author of Waiting for Spring
The author skillfully weaves through the exquisitely written pages, the message of hope and freedom and redemption. It's a message the world desperately needs to hear today, that despite tragedy and hard times, new life and hope are right around the corner. Readers will also appreciate the cross-over with other characters from the prior two novels. All in all, Beyond the Valley is a delightful escape of adventure and romance and a sweeping saga of tragedy and hope that you won't want to miss!
MaryLu Tyndall, author of Surrender to Destiny Series.
Creating characters with intense realism and compassion is one of Gerlach's gifts. Her books typically involve dramatic situations, giving her characters a chance to rise above their adversity. Beyond the Valley is a shining example of that, reminding us that we are never forsaken. The historic setting is vividly descriptive, bringing the story to life, almost becoming a character unto itself. You may shed some tears, but you'll come away with deep contentment and satisfaction of a story well told.
From the Back Cover
Will his love be enough to find her again within the wilds of the Maryland frontier?
When Sarah Carr's husband Jamie drowns, her young life is shattered and takes a turn she never expected. Pregnant and now widowed, she reaches out to Jamie's family for help but they are unwilling. Instead they devise a plan to have her kidnapped and taken to the Colonies to live a life of servitude.
Sarah endures the hardships of a sea voyage, the debasement of the slave auction, and the loneliness of servitude. In despair, she puts her trust in her Savior and finds her new life in the Colonies surrounded by a family's whirlwind of secrets, while she hopes the young doctor she loves will bring her freedom.

Sarah really had a lot of hard knocks in her life. Losing her husband in such a short time, betrayed, losing her unborn baby, being indentured, and the list goes on on. But as it's says in the Bible, weeping may last a night but joy comes in the morning and beauty for ashes. In my life I've had both of these statements come true like they did for Sarah. Sarah has a lot of sorrows but she's a strong woman and relies on God and her faith to get through.
Because so many reviewers have already presented a synopsis of this novel, I am not adding another story-line review. I pre-ordered this book Sept. 5, 2012, and only received it last week. I would have been happy to be one of the first to sing Rita's praises for "Beyond the Valley" is her best work, and it deserves to be nominated for this year's Christy Award.
