Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

          This an not just an entertaining collection of stories about a fabulously rich culture. Valentine is MEMORIALIZING her people, and her town. This becomes more than just a novel, but also a fascinating and educational look at a region and culture relatively unsung in American literature. THE WHISKEY BOTTLE IN THE WALL, VOL. I: SECRETS OF MARIENSTADT, promises that the entire collection will be more than just a slice of small-town America. It will be a tribute to a people and a place, the Pennsylvania Dutch, and their contributions to American history. With compassion and satire, and beautifully detailed writing, Valentine has delicately chiseled out of these seemingly ordinary lives, the unique, profound, and quixotic traits that make each character memorable, even epic. We are offered history as well as comedy and tragedy.
          With compassion and satire, and beautifully detailed writing, Valentine has delicately chiseled out of these seemingly ordinary lives, the unique, profound, and quixotic traits that make each character memorable, even epic. We are offered history as well as comedy and tragedy. So, please read these stories slowly, then read them again, because while we are reading about life, love, and birth and death, we are also learning the rich culture and traditions of one of the most fascinating communities in our United States.  I predict the entire collection of THE WHISKEY BOTTLE IN THE WALL... will become a classic. I can't wait for Volume II! Thank you, Kathleen Valentine. -  Kiana Davenport, author of Shark Dialogues and The Spy Lover

The characters are so real and the author describes the town of Marienstadt along with its history beautifully. Each chapter is a short story of its own coming together as a book! Great characters, well written and refreshingly quaint!

I enjoyed reading this book where you have a town of caring people, eventhough there are some real "characters" residing there. The flavor of a town where people help each other in need; though you have some villains residing there.

It doesn't hurt when your Sheriff if quite the "hunk" too. There is humor and pathos too.

I enjoyed having several generations still there and the history of the town.

This could have been an interesting series of stories but she goes too vile for me to want anything to do with it...it's a shame.
Be careful in purchasing books in this series -- I bought all of this series only to find out three of them were nothing but repeats - there should be a warning about duplicates.. About four of the stories were okay but this author seems to like the low life. A town the size the stories indicates this one is would have several churches, however she only seems to want to bash the Mormons but it pushes the catholic church on nearly ever page. At least one has the vilest perverted sex. This author starts one story and then leaves it to throw in two or three other stories then back to the original story. I have removed this author from my list of authors I will purchase. Stick with Steena Holmes, Catharine Hyde, and Bette Lee Crosbyand several others.
