AnnelrBrighton, MIAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A treasure more important than the Mona LisaMay 1, 2016AnnelrBrighton, MIAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Where 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 Gods 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.

Where Treasure Hides by Johnnie Alexander, 2013
World War, 1939-1945
She felt a kinship with the embroiderer, the mysterious need to preserve a slice of time before it flowed into the mists of memory.
"I had to capture the moment."
--Where Treasure Hides, 13
August 1939 ~ London, England
A strain of music drew her as she waited at the train station ~ "Rule, Britannia!" and the holder of the violin not more than seven or eight, played with his heartstrings for all to hear and believe. That Alison Schuyler should be there at the exact same moment Lieutenant Ian Devlin was watching out for young Josef Talbert, Kindertransport identity label 127. Boarding his train, Alison notices she has missed her connection ... and her heart that day, as Lt. Devlin invites her to tea and memories. He was a soldier on the eve of war. A chance meeting at Waterloo Station....
I have just finished reading Chapter Four and tears cover my eyes, hating for them to part. Especially, with her parting thoughts through the window of the train: "You're safe now, Ian Devlin," she whispered. "I've left you, and now you're safe." As her train continues down the track, I cherish the few moments they have had together.
Can a day change your life? Ian Devlin hopes it is so. An image to take to war with him with hopes that they will indeed meet again.
This is a story of the hiding of the irreplaceable art of the Masters. Alison lives with her grandfather in Holland where he owns an art gallery. Believing that anyone who touches their family comes to ruin, she tries to guard her heart against the memory of Ian. When England declares war on Germany, Ian is recalled to duty.
Johnnie Alexander has visibly taken us through the throngs of war during this time period in history. I would like to see a continued story beyond Where Treasure Hides by this author. Very deftly written, you will follow the characters amid every turn in their unknown days to come.

NanceeGrand Rapids, MichiganAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5World War II readers will enjoy this enlightening novel!March 25, 2016NanceeGrand Rapids, MichiganAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Johnette Alexander is a new author to me, and I'm impressed! Her first novel, Where Treasure Hides is a strong and unpredictable novel! Taking place in WWII her facts are well researched and her characters believable. Portions of this book are so beautifully descriptive that they are poetic.
This momentous time in our world's history affected the art collections of the world's masters. Alison Schuyler assisted in the Dutch Underground activities to find safe havens for Jewish children and priceless pieces of art. The activities surrounding Alison, her family and their famous art gallery in Rotterdam are informational as well as interesting.
I will be following this author in the future. I'd like to discover what else she has written. Where Treasure Hides being her first novel, I'm looking forward to reading more of her works. WWII fans will enjoy this novel. I highly recommend it!

Kate5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent!February 18, 2016KateQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Where Treasure Hides by Johnnie Alexander is an unforgettable story set in WWII Europe. Combining romance, intrigue, and adventure, Alexander weaves an emotional journey through the perils of war. Her book is filled with events and dangers of the time period, all brought to life in a page turning novel. From cover to cover, her characters take you through a time riddled with danger and a quest of justice amid chaos.
The book features the story of Alison and Ian as they each struggle with different aspects of the war. For Alison, it is rescuing children and art from the Nazis. For Ian, it is fighting on the front lines and enduring POW camps. And through it all Alexander blends in the emotion of losing loved ones, the fear of battle, and the fight to preserve treasure in the face of Nazi destruction.
I really enjoyed this story. The plot moved swiftly and engaged me all the way through. I appreciated the continuing suspense and variety of characters who were both endearing and abhorrent. I hope Alexander has a sequel planned, because she ended the book with a perfect lead-in to one!

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.
