Editorial Reviews

Review

"Fritsch grants his characters an easy, unforced humanity that is instantly inviting. His people sound like individuals. They make the story memorable. A strange, primitive world that feels winningly real." Kirkus Discoveries

"A good tale that feels real, with a strong promise and a good twist at the end. Fritsch presents us with a primitive society, in the manner of Jean Auel's books, but with much more compassionate characters." The US Review of Books

"You'll enjoy Promised Valley Rebellion if you like in-depth characters, a mystery that's not easily solved, and a subtle twist that could change everything." Reader Views

"Fritsch develops his characters with sensitivity and depth. Their youthful optimism and enthusiasm ring so true the reader can't resist rooting for them. Shining through the simple but expressive prose is an affection for the human condition: vulnerable, frequently confused, but always capable of great heroism and love." Feathered Quill

"I found the characters to be unique and what truly made the book. There was also an element of suspense. I wasn't able to predict how the book was going to end although a couple of times I thought I knew (but I was wrong). I recommend this book if you enjoy historical fiction peppered with a little suspense." Rebecca's Reads

From the Author

Ron Fritsch has published a four-book series of Promised Valley novels: Promised Valley Rebellion, Promised Valley War, Promised Valley Conspiracy and Promised Valley Peace. The novels have won a number of awards and highly favorable reviews. The series is complete.

In the epic Promised Valley adventure, prehistoric farmers inhabit a fertile river valley they believe their gods promised them in return for their good behavior and obedience. Their enemies, hunters roaming the mostly barren hills beyond the mountains enclosing the valley, believe their gods gave it to them.

Both sides, though, value individuals who partner with persons of their own gender. Because they have no children to raise, they take leadership positions, especially in times of war.

The four Promised Valley novels ask whether civilization and history, with their countless heaven-sanctioned wars and genocides, could've begun differently.

The individuals who live, struggle, revel, die and survive in the novels confront fundamental questions:

How factual are the stories their ancestors handed down to them?

Despite those stories, are they and their enemies equal human beings who deserve to be treated as such?

Are their gods -- who appear to be the same deities for the farmers as well as the hunters, even as they exhort both of their supposedly favored peoples to kill the other -- truly benevolent gods?

Or do their gods, outside of those ancestral stories that might not be true, simply not exist?
