Review

*WESTERN HORIZON AWARD winner
*WYOMING STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY PUBLICATIONS FICTION AWARD winner
*KIRKUS INDIE NEW AND NOTABLE

Despite the technological, economical and social differencesbetween then and now, the heart of the story is timeless. Beautiful imageryaccentuates the compelling narrative that depicts an era gone but notforgotten. A poignant story...    
     --Kirkus    
Circumstances can throw us into peril after peril, but theycan also bring us a chance at joy. A moving read of the pains of immigrantlife and the woodchipper that life can be.       
   --Margaret's Shelf, Midwest Book Review
[V]ery well done...The narrative is well crafted as aportrait of the changing attitudes of two people thrown together in a situationthey are unprepared for... Their guarded relationship eventually turns to loveon both sides, and glides nicely to a satisfactoryconclusion.     
     --Historical Novel Review
A Top Pick, 4 1/2 stars.  "I thought this book wasreally wonderful. It had everything."    
      --Night Owl Reviews
Well-written in a casual, straight-forward tone, Willow Valeis a light read.  I particularly enjoyed the author's descriptions of thetowns and countryside. 
     --Historical Novel Society
This book is not only a fine read in itself, but it alsocould be a springboard to read with older teen-agers as an introduction todiscussing what real love and real maturity mean. A lovely, hopeful story.
    --Story Circle Book Reviews
Williams' brilliant use of imagery and description addsenchanting details to this beautiful love story.
   --Portland Book Review

From the Author

The historical novel readers wish was a true story.
Willow Vale was written as an attempt to discover the facts about Tyrolean emigration to America after WWI. That's my grandmother's passport picture on the cover of Willow Vale.Even without makeup ever touching her face, Nona was a beautiful woman, remarkably pretty even into old age. Willow Vale is dedicated to her memory. My grandmother emigrated to America after World War I, the new bride of a Tyrolean immigrant coal miner in Wyoming, just like Francesca. From there, my grandmother's real story and my character Francesca's entirely made-up story share a few basic facts common to all immigrants, and Francesca's fictional story of finding hope in her new country takes wing.
