A socio-political story about community and corruption. This book is based on deep faith which is all that keeps the good guys protected from selfish evil.

This story is written in a style that reminds me of older writing styles. Elegantly simple and to the point; getting us through the story. There is betrayal, murder, attempted murder (even that of a child), abuse, romantic love and the Might of Right.

The story is moving. I enjoyed the story and that unusual writing style. A community can come back to the true knowledge of the glue that holds them together. Sometimes the desire for personal gain and not paying attention will get in the way and the folks in the community have to learn the hard way with pain and loss. I recommend reading it from a political point of view — we must pay attention to what is going on around us. There are days when those who would be at the front of the line do not have the skills to lead or the best interests of the community at heart. When they are given more responsibility than they should be given, the givers are the losers. But the givers could have been paying attention.

This book is a Christian novel that is very well put together. I had read previously a little short story in the Christmas Visitor's book also written by DeEtte Beckstead. She wrote a sample chapter to her book as a hors d'oeuvre for her first chapter in her book Victory! In order to find out the story behind "Brown Eyes", I bought the book Victory. That first chapter made tears run down my cheeks because I could so relate to the foundling. I was not disappointed with the book Victory.
There is the Guest (Martin Percival the bad guy) and then there is the Stranger (Steve the good guy). Brown Eyes is an orphaned child that was brought to live with a distant relative in the city of Victory, Shirley. Shirley has had a really rough life and has pretty much turned her back on religion and has no real use for Brown Eyes except for the small check the State sends her every month. Now in any Christian story there is a fight for good and evil. This book is no different but what makes it so amazing is how DeEtte Beckstead weaves the story around the whole town of Victory. There is one lesson in there we all should know by now and that is not to judge people buy the clothes they wear, what they drive, or how they look but DeEtte Anderson brings forth a new lesson in which we all must learn sometime in our lives.
DeEtte Beckstead adaptation of good and evil begins with her very first line in this book which quoted states "If God is with us, who can be against us?" This book is a very good read whether you are a Christian or not and has one of the best life lessons to learn. This book made me cry in places and cheer in others.

This is such a well told story, I had finished it just a couple of days due to unforeseen interruptions. The book has a way of sucking you in, pondering the reality of what is happening and making me believe this could be any town USA...or honestly, is already true is some towns, villages in the world.

Great book and definitely look forward to more from this author!

Be prepared! Once you began to read this book you won't be able to put it down until you read the last page. The author uses words as a paintbrush that delightfully reveals the town of Victory and its inhabitants, as well as their trials and tribulations. Each turn of the page will cause you to be hungry for more!

`Victory' humbly addresses some of those values and beliefs addressed by Edmund Burke, the political philosopher famously noted for the popular saying, "All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." However, although widely attributed to Burke, the quote is not found in his works. The quote may very well be a modification of "‎Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing," a statement in the `Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents' (1770). In this work, Burke states, "When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle," Volume i, page 526. I write this as part of this Review, because this theme of apathy, promoted by evil threatening liberty, and all the good for which this notion of certain freedoms provides for in an open society, is what Author DeEtte Anderton is writing about in an a most accomplished style. Committing to humble, endearing argument premised on Higher Belief ... No, not argument, a reminder really of that Higher Belief, this is an incredibly comfortable read regarding huge ideological concepts, couched in a delicate religiosity and robust spirituality. Learning the works of the political and social thinkers, having learned the Bible I applaud DeEtte Anderton as she takes something as unexpected as the presentation of a contraband candy cane to an appreciative child, elevating the cause, the reminder of such endearing and important principles and beliefs to include our mandate to never simply look on and do nothing; to believe in nothing. Victory contributes, not only complimenting that body of work from Burke, Victory also fits well with the history of giving Prayer and Thanks, while not relying on the semantics of an oft misquoted parliamentary style notation, and, while not hesitating to maintain and tell a story about a stronger, prevailing belief system.
