Publisher's Description

Artist Alison Schuyler spends her time working in her family’s renowned art gallery, determined to avoid the curse that has followed the Schuyler clan from the Netherlands to America and back again. She’s certain that true love will only lead to tragedy—that is, until a chance meeting at Waterloo station brings Ian Devlin into her life. Drawn to the bold and compassionate British Army captain, Alison begins to question her fear of love as World War II breaks out, separating the two and drawing each into their own battles. While Ian fights for freedom on the battlefield, Alison works with the Dutch Underground to find a safe haven for Jewish children and priceless pieces of art alike. But safety is a luxury war does not allow. As time, war, and human will struggle to keep them apart, will Alison and Ian have the faith to fight for their love, or is it their fate to be separated forever?

    This review was written for Where Treasure Hides.
    WWII is a hard time period for me to read about or watch. It was a dark time for many people and as such, I often shy away from it. But the plot for this novel here drew me in and while I wasn't sure how well I would like the book, it turned out to be in my top three list for the year. Yes, I loved it!

    Mrs Alexander does an excellent job with research, causing the reader to feel like they have been picked up and set back down in a different era. The attention to detail allows you to hear the violin as little Josef plays, smell the scones at Minivers, brush the rain from your shoulders as you rush with Alison from the car to the house and even feel the despair as Ian makes a decision to take a life in order to save another. These characters were so real, the book would be excellent made into a movie, that at times I felt like I knew them.

    One of my favorite aspects was the history. I had heard of the Dutch Resistance but I never realized all it detailed. What went into the rescuing of Jewish children, hiding them and forging the passports, while risking their own lives to do it. Also the hiding of art from the plundering of the Germans. I found myself going to the internet and searching for more information, especially about the artwork being hidden in caves. All in all it moved me like no other story has yet this year. Brilliant writing that draws the reader into that time period, steadily moving along on a ride of ups and downs. My heart ached for Ian and Alison, so much in love and yet held apart by more than just distance. The secondary characters were just as much a part of the story, including young Libby (a refugee in her own right), Ian's sister Trish, and even Theodor, the German in love with Alison. My only complaint? the story just ends, leaving you with a teaser! Definitely not right! My fingers are crossed for a second installment shortly. Again, an amazing book that I would urge everyone to pick up and read, even if WWII is not your favorite genre. A+!

    *Disclosure* I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are 100% mine.

    Alison is a Dutch artist who meets a British soldier while in England. As World War II starts, she must hide priceless art and Jewish children from the Germans, while hoping to see the man she loves again. I thought this book was very good, with plenty of plot twists. I wish there had not been a somewhat cliffhanger ending and hope it is resolved in another book.

    Where Treasure Hides is a captivating Romantic Historical Fiction novel set during WWII in England and the Netherlands. Alison Schuyler is an artist and the young heir to her familys renowned art gallery. If you enjoy love at first sight stories, then this novel will be a treat for you. British Army Captain, Ian Devlin, falls head over heels for Alison when he first sees her at Waterloo Station.

    The War separates the two of them. Alison spends her time during the war hiding art masterpieces and finding safe homes for Jewish children. Ian fights on the frontlines and eventually winds up at Dunkirk. The reader is pulled into the story on both fronts, making for a quick read in anticipation of a reunion between the two protaginists.

    This is a great story of heroism and bravery, keeping the reader on the edge of their seat. Im really hoping the author writes a sequel.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher, through The Book Club Network (bookfun.org) in exchange for my honest review.

    This review was written for Where Treasure Hides.
    This was one of those books I could hardly put down. It drew me in right off the bat and held me throughout the book. Since it was published in 2013, I went looking for a sequel but was disappointed to find it hasn't been released yet!

    Alison Schuyler and Ian Devlin are introduced in a very touching scene with a group of young Jewish refugees. Their love story unfolds with unexpected turns throughout the book. The intrigue comes with both Ian's undercover work during World War II and also through the art gallery belonging to Alison's Dutch family from 1939 to 1945.

    There were many chapters that put me on pins and needles as the characters very lives were in jeopardy more than once. There were surprising twists and turns in the plot, many heartwarming scenes. Ian saves a little German girl while he is on the run and brings her back to his family. Alison saves the daughters of a friend, taking them out of Holland to England.

    I heartily recommend this book!

    This review was written for Where Treasure Hides.
    In Where Treasure Hides I was taken to a world of very real characters going through very life-like circumstances. With each page I turned the deeper I went into the story of Alison, Ian, and the heartache of war.

    Alison and Ian met at Waterloo station and it was pretty much love at first sight. In no time at all Ian was proclaiming his love for Alison which you're probably thinking, "Whoa, isn't that a little fast and too fictional?" I will admit that I was a little skeptical about their "love at first sight," but as I soaked in their story I was enchanted by their connection - a connection that went deeper than mere looks, a connection that was so well portrayed that it felt real - and through the beautiful writing of Johnnie Alexander I was swept away by Alison and Ian.

    Johnnie Alexander did an outstanding job of writing about World War II. She paints quite a picture {without being too graphic} of what battle and prison may have been like. . . the heartache, the terror, the desperation, and the victory makes a lasting imprint. She writes in a way that causes the reader to pause and remember what those men, women, and children went through.

    The author also put a twist on the "typical" war novel by writing about art preservation during World War II. The Schuyler family have spent over three hundred years building an impeccable reputation of their art gallery in the Netherlands and when war breaks out they will do what they must to protect the beloved artwork.

    I was very impressed with Where Treasure Hides and applaud Johnnie Alexander's beautiful writing skills and the ability to write a memorable story. This is a book that stayed in my mind and heart for a long while after turning the final page. There is love, World War II history, the blessing of God's grace, and art preservation all packed into this book - let's see if you can put it down :)

Author/Artist Review

Author: Johnnie Alexander Donley
Submitted: January 07, 2013

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Author Johnnie Alexander Donley writes stories of suspense, intrigue, and romance set in World War II. Her debut book, Where Treasure Hides, won the American Christian Fiction Writers Genesis contest for Historical Fiction in 2011. A history enthusiast, Johnnie has also edited nonfiction manuscripts and textbooks. She serves as president of the Central Florida chapter of American Christian Fiction Writers. A longtime Florida resident, Johnnie treasures family memories, classic movies, shelves full of books, and her papillon Rugby.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  While researching different aspects of World War II for another project, I became fascinated by the overwhelming amount of art looted by the Nazis and heartbroken over the horrendous plight of so many of the children. Readers experience both these issues through this story.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  The protagonist, Alison Schuyler, descends from a long line of artistic Van Schuylers. Protecting her family's art gallery from the Nazis means more to her than anything. But as the war drags on, she has to make choices about what, and who, to protect. Despite everything that the war takes away from her, Alison learns to trust God with her future (Proverbs 31:25).

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Horrible things happen during war, especially to children. It wasn't easy reading accounts of parents having to make agonizing decisions for the sake of safety. Certain scenes in the novel were very difficult to write, but they needed to be included because they show how horrid it was to live under Nazi occupation.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My writing is deeply influenced by Christian themes such as forgiveness and grace. I love epic movies and books such as Les Miserables, The Lord of the Ring Trilogy, and The Secret Garden. Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr, Ingrid Bergman, and Audry Hepburn are a few of my favorite actors. Favorite authors include Daniel Silva, Kate Morton, Anne Perry, Jane Kirkpatrick, and Davis Bunn.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Before it was published, Where Treasure Hides won the 2011 American Christian Fiction Writers Genesis Contest in Historical Fiction.
