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?

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.
