    2nd time through and as always I love the whole impetus behind Mrs Turner's writing to show that normal Christians can and should have an impact on the world around them even in normal daily events My one complaint is that I read this book right after reading Some Wildflower in my Heart and noticed a lot of similarities in characters and certain wordings and phrases Both books talk about how cliche their stories are and how a nobody would ever read a book that went like this Which is ironic obviously but maybe a little overused? That's my two cents I'm no literary professional but something I noticed since I read these two books in a row I've read all her novels and think them to be very well written and interesting

    Celia is a director of an art gallery Having lost her parents in an auto accident as a young teen she spent her tumultuous high school years with a emotionally hardened but determined grandmother a grandmother who not only has very high standards morally but expects Celia to follow suit When Celia rebels and leaves for good she finds herself in later years regretting her treatment of her grandmother and wishing she had another chance Fast forward several years and now in the beginning chapters of “Some Dark Valley” Celia finds herself back home again to attend her grandmother’s funeral and close up the house she inherited As she reaps what she has sown in the mistakes and moral failures of her life Celia has decided to keep her personal relationships brief and distant Although always longing for a home and family of her own she closets her real self within trying to find comfort in her own ‘space’ “ 'Face your fear’ That’s what Todd has said that came back to her now He had tried repeatedly to probe into her past wanting her to ‘open up her shell’ as he called it but she had always managed to elude his uestions’ Celia has some tough memories to overcome in her past “ she had remained very still with her eyes closed picturing herself standing in a large field digging for pleasant memories with a little silver pickax Over and over she lifted the pickax and brought it down Surely there were multitudes of other good memories underneath all the bad ones She even imagined that she heard the soft plunging sound of the pickax as it sank into the loose soil little glints of mica and uartz chips flying up with every stroke And happily she at last began to see the pickax uncover what she took to be good memories” Like most of her novels the main character will have some hoops to jump through in order to find a resolution to the hardships in her life The reader has to decide whether Celia’s fears and avoidance of her grandmother are legitimate or not “After they ate that night Grandmother took out some plastic grocery store bags and divided up all those berries every last one Then they walked up and down Old Campground Road delivering them to all the neighbors Grandmother kept one bag for herself One bag out of probably twelve or fourteen The next day she made one blackberry pie and two jars of preserves Not much to show for all that hot work under the July sun” This book started out a little slow for me but soon picked up and I found myself really wanting to know if Celia would ever be able to come to terms with her grief and remorse This author really has a talent for bringing characters to life and not glossing over the hard uestions we all struggle with Her honesty within the context of fiction is not only refreshing but saturated with authentic snapshots of the tragedies within lifeI think I would have given this book five stars had the point of view not changed from Celia to Bruce in the second half of the book I found myself wanting to see the resolution from her viewpoint as I had bonded with her throughout the book ‘Some Dark Valley’ comes close to being one of my favorites from this author Although called ‘too introspective’ by some I thoroughly enjoyed the soul searching that the main characters undergo in this latest book I have read Jamie Langston Turner is fast becoming one of my favorite reads and I am obviously on a JLT kick Eldeen the one of a kind uirky character who never stops talking resurfaces but only briefly in this latest episode in the Derby Series As Celia meets and interacts with her neighbors tennis team players and cautiously begins to make friends the reader is pulling for her all the way hoping that in the end Celia will find closure and contentmentThe message or theme if you will of this book can be found in the last few chapters “Given sun and rain a flower will bloom To the human heart love is irresistible Though I have not solved the mystery of suffering I have felt the healing work of love”

    This book was good but long Both of the main characters would tell their story in a stream of consciousness type of way so that it could take half an hour of listening to get through a simple dinner scene because they would stop to comment on the family eating at the next table and make up a story about them For the patient listener the story is wonderful though about a girl named Cecilia who after her grandmother's death fulfills her promise to go back home for her funeral In the process she rehashes her childhood and painful memories of the past eventually finding redemption through a litany of old hymns an artist a tennis club and an annoying next door neighbor The narrator was perfect for the story as well

    Worth the waitin ways than one I got this book in 2015 as an ebook I started itthen a couple of ebooks I had put on hold came available so since I could read this one any time I put it aside read the ones that had to be returned Meanwhile through Boob Bub subseuent similar venues I had added to my ebook collection I had had regular books I had put on hold become available Pretty soon I had forgotten about this one So here it is 5 years later; I'm looking through my library of ebooks and see that I had started this one I had to restart it of course and pretty soon I was hooked Honestly I had trouble putting it down I didn't grow up in an evangelical Christian home but in a mainline denomination home I didn't know there were groups of Christians who thought movies dancing secular music and card playing were just as bad as I knew some held smoking liuor of any sort to be until I went to uni I had met this guy who knew how to get my soda pop out of the thieving vending machine we got to talking This was back when guys weren't allowed in girls' dormswhen there were panty raids sometimesso as he was gettng hints to leave he asked me out on a date for 2 days from then After the successful date he introduced mento his 5 guy friends all of whom were astounded that my denomination actually deliberately held dances in the fellowship hall for teenshad costume parties for Halloweenwhose members held card parties to raise money for the churchescondemned drunkenness but not alcohol in moderationdidn't throw smokers out of the churchhad no problems with movies For my part I was surprised that they all considered their card games a rebellion And so began an extensive cultural exchange of sorts esp since starting at 16 in the 60s I had decided to see if all roads led to heaven except of course for the Church of Satan whose bible I read out of curiosity and had investigated the major world religions as well as some minor oones Eventually one of those friends got me to attend his church where I finally got it and got saved So while I was uestioning every facet of Christianity studying world religions they were sneaking out to movies playing cards etc all of us rebelling in our own ways Pretty much we all came to or back to Jesus and I got an easy A when I selected a course in world religions as an electiveBut the process is about the same By the time I came to Jesus I was deeply into my father's religion the occult anything and everything even though he wanted very little to do with me I had concluded they were all the same if they all had screeds of rules I was going to get sone power with mine Trust me that is a very second rate power compared to what God gives us in Jesus And of course when I realized how wrong and rebellious I had been I was amazed that God not only accepted me but allowed me into His kingdom as unworthy as I was This is the story of 2 very different people who follow paths not too dissmilar to mine They are going by roteas in the occult using their own efforts to get what they want from God which is witchcraft in its purest form The one is not a believer the other was raised a fundie The 1st has no reason to know God's ways; the 2nd has been exposed t them all her life but like me didn't really get it He finds God she finds her way back to Him They learn no effort can get you to heaven only Jesus' sacrificial death can Anything you do that is Christian is in gratitude for His saving grace; plus He sets up good works for us to walk in them not as a demand for entry to heaven The only ones reminding us of a need for continual forgiveness for the same sins for which we have confessed and received forgiveness are ourselves the devil and those church lady types who are unsaved or don't get grace and are trying to show God how much better they are than someone of whom they disapprove or of whom they are afraid I loved how the books showed her evolution and his from their uniue backgrounds to reliance on God the freedom of His grace If you have ever wondered what the big deal is about Christianity read this book and find out Whatever you get from my tale is a bonus PS I never intended to get married but here I am coming on 47 years of marriage to one of those card playing sinners to whom my date introduced me with whom I was friends then a fiancee for 3 years before we married

    I could use this book to make a list of literary devices I dislike First the author continually As in multiple times per chapter refers either to the fact that this would make a great story for a book or that it would not going so far as to put in italics the words she would use if it were actually written in a book yuckSecond the hymn references while meaningful in moderation uickly become a distraction and seem to be forced into the storyline Finally the author uses flashback in a frustrating way leaving the dialogue hanging for several paragraphs or pages while the characters wander off in their brains to a real or imagined corollary clean but useless


  7. Joy Schmidt Joy Schmidt says:

    I read this book via audiobook and that may have been why I had a hard time getting into the story If I had been actually reading a physical copy it might have been easier to stay involved I did enjoy the references to all the old hymns interspersed throughout I grew up with those songs in church and they still hold a dear spot in my heart

    No dark valley has a few dark valleys This author is very wordy I like her work I suppose if you take words out you wouldn't have much

    Celia Coleman's parents died while she was in high school so she went to live with her grandmother a strictly religious woman Celia is a rebellious teen always pushing boundaries to the limit Disappointing her extended family when she attends a secular college Celia doesn't return to her small home town again until her grandmother's funeral This event precipitates a time of introspection and Celia begins to look at the way she has run from close relationships especially from one with God A mistake in her past continues to haunt her and although she has a good job and a decent life Celia feels something is missing Bruce Healey meets Celia and is attracted despite the fact that she seems to bring out the bumbling irritating side of him Bruce's relationship with God is fairly new but he's on a path of discovery and forgiveness Can Celia and Bruce find common ground and forge a friendship? Can Celia find her way back to God?The novel takes an interesting look at journeys through a dark time in life to the light of God on the other side Although the general themes of the book are intriguing it suffers from an over abundance of description which becomes tedious and drags the pace to a slow crawl Celia's story is engrossing at first so that the reader can sympathize and possibly empathize with her struggles Yet after 200 pages of a great deal of inner strife and not much dialogue the resolution of Celia's problem is only mentioned as an afterthought and never properly dealt with in the story This also happens with Celia's faith journey and with Bruce and Celia's relationship the reader never gets to see the progression of their romance so the final chapter although sweet rings falseI have read many books by the author and have always enjoyed the storylines This one seems in need of editing to improve the pacing and allow the reader to experience the story rather than read about it after the fact But the message is uplifting so those who like Christian fiction will find something to appreciate in No Dark Valley

    This book has two main characters—Celia and Bruce It is a testament to the author’s writing skills that Celia was a pretty cold and unlikable character but one a reader feels sympathetic toward because of circumstances in her life Bruce though seemed like a likable guy at first but since the reader is privy to his every thought turned out to be somewhat arrogant and judgmental when his story began to unfold The author puts the reader inside these two character’s heads—and this is one of the weaknesses of the book There are often so many thought lines going at once that it is difficult to follow the actual story line Much of these character’s thoughts simply did nothing to advance the story and could have been edited out I did not mind that the story was told from both character’s perspectives A good portion at least 60% or of the story focused on Celia’s life and struggles Since I’ve read two other books by this author I know that one of her strong suits in storytelling is telling the character’s story completely But for some reason right at Celia’s turning point Bruce’s story started Then Celia’s transformation gets a few sentences somewhere near the end Given that Celia’s character was one I sympathized with as a reader it was rather a let down not to be taken through of that transformation process in the story I think her story the guilt she suffered from having an abortion is so relevant that many readers would have benefitted from being shown her transformation to hope and healing As it was written however a reader could easily think Celia’s transformation was due to a romance with Bruce instead of the love of God and the light of the Gospel
