Publisher's Description

For reasons beyond her control, Sophie finds herself alone in the war-torn Spanish countryside. What was once a thriving paradise has become a battleground for fascist soldiers and Spanish patriots. It doesnâ⿬⿢t take long for Sophie to realize just how far from home she really is.


Caught in the middle of what is quickly becoming a bloody battleground, she receives tragic news, but remaining in Spain is her only option. The route to safety is blocked and fighting surrounds her. On her darkest night, Sophie takes refuge with a brigade of international compatriots. It is among these volunteers, through the use of her fiancÿâ©s camera and her art, that she pledges to make the plight of the Spanish people known around the world.

    I bought the trilogy because my husband is a Basque who was born in Spain. His father fought in the war on the side of the Republicans. He was shot and badly wounded. Sophie, the lead character, is on the side of the Republicans and doing what she can for the injured soldiers and the people of Spain. The first book was a little confusing at first because it follows the stories of 5 major characters in the book. I am enjoying the history more than the storyline. It helps to have my husband and mother-in-law around to clarify what was actually going on since they are both from the town of Guernica which figures prominently in the story.

    Lets just say I'm not the type to read books, but this one is so amazing that I'd actually stay up to 2AM to read the book. The way Tricia Goyer describes things you feel like your right there and makes you want to know more about the Spanish civil war. I LOVED IT!!

    The first novel in a new series about the Spanish Civil War, A Valley of Betrayal unfolds with a distinctively Goyer-esque feel to it. In this book, author Tricia Goyer does another brilliant job bringing history to life with vivid characters searching for their meaning in the midst of conflict, each wanting to contribute their utmost for their cause. In this time and place in history, it's the middle of the Spanish Civil War. The Nazi's are exerting their influence from one side, strong-arming Fascism over the country. At the same time, Russia is enticing the area with the idealistic vision of Communism. Spain is divided between the two political perspectives, and the resulting battleground ravages the country in the process.The most serious fighting isn't found on the front lines, though, but in the internal struggle of every individual who must decide who they are and what they truly believe in. Some of the characters are natives of Spain; others from different countries who are drawn to the area for their own reasons. Some come to fight, and some to serve, but they all discover themselves in the process. Each naturally feels that their side has the most righteous cause, and all are willing to risk everything in the effort to win the war. Goyer tries to communicate the struggle of a people searching for themselves amidst the rubble of their ideals. It's not an easy struggle, nor an easy story to read considering the cost of the war. But despite the fact that no one seems to emerge on top in this bloody battle, the novel itself is a winner. I highly recommend A Valley of Betrayal by author Tricia Goyer, and eagerly look forward to the next installment in the series.

    I'm so used to Tricia's Nazi era books that this one took me a while longer to get into at first. However, she had me hook, line, and sinker on this one to the end. Trica is so adept at describing scenes that you feel like you're there. The blood, the smoke, the cries of the dying. Her descriptions are an amazing treat for the senses. Tricia does a fabulous job describing the horror of war. Her writing style is always a cultural banquet and I felt like I got a real taste of war-torn Europe.She also had me going there for awhile about Michael. I'm still not sure I like the guy. Plus, there is still some major mystery lingering by the books end. And the romance! Oye ve! She BETTER address some of that in the sequel or I'll have to hunt her down. I can almost feel the rope burns on my neck from where she left me hanging! I wish I had the sequel on hand because I'd whip it out and continue the saga right now! Great new series. Makes me want to kick back, put my feet up, roll my Rs, and eat a torta! :)

    I think I enjoyed this book a lot more than the average person would because I'm a history major. There was LOTS of information about the war and the circumstances surrounding it, and how it leads up to WWII (thanks for doing the research for me Tricia! lol). I can see if you're not a history buff how some of this info would be boring since this is not an American war. Like I said though, I really enjoyed learning as I read. I've read other books about the Spanish Civil war that don't really give you any details about the war itself, they just send in Americans to save the poor helpless Europeans. Valley instead shows the pride of the Spanish people and allows the reader to immerse in the culture. You get caught up in the character's lives, both Sophie's and Phillip's, as you read about the people they are seeing, the death happening around them, the run for safety. I really felt for Sophie when she finds out the truth about Michael and the lies she must now face. To me that was when her character has to grow up and makes the change towards maturity in the story. She is no longer on vacation in Spain, she is on a mission to survive. The only thing I didn't like about the book was that I'm left hanging at the end of the story and I must wait till fall to find out what happens. Until then, I highly recommend this book if you like an excellent story with rich historical detail.
