Where Treasure Hides, first novel by Johnnie Alexander is one not to be missed. A wonderful story of WWII intrigue, love and heartache. Alexander has captured the WWII era well with a realistic story and believable characters. Readers are given a glimpse of life in Europe during a horrendous time in our world. The impact of the Nazis on the art world and the impact of the war on the Jewish people, especially children are well portrayed. Through the lives of Alison, a lovely miss from the Netherlands and Ian, a British Army captain readers are given a gripping and compelling love story that endures through the horrors of war. There are a number of twists and turns to the plot that keep the pages turning. Alexander has woven the powerful impact of the scriptures throughout the book as her characters bring to remembrance Bible verses that bring comfort and strength. Two especially effectual quotes are: "Strength and honour are her clothing," she recited, her voice barely a whisper. "She shall rejoice in time to come." and "Thou are my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance."...Ian believed God's hand was upon him, to preserve him and deliver him. A marvelous debut novel. I received a copy of this book through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
