    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 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!

    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 :)

    In the spirit of Cara Putman's Shadowed by Grace and Kristy Cambron's The Butterfly and the Violin, Johnnie Alexander debuts her historical fiction novel, Where Treasure Hides. Alison Schuyler's family has spent the last three hundred years building an international reputation of their art gallery in the Netherlands. Her father moved to Chicago years before, disrupting that legacy, while trying to distance himself from a tragic history that devastates every generation of the family. On a journey through London, Alison meets British Army officer Ian Devlin, a man with his own tragic past and an undeniable quality that captures Alisons attention and heart. With the outbreak of World War II, Alison and Ian find themselves separated by their battles for freedom and oppression under the Nazi regime, Ian's on the battlefield and Alison's through her work with the Dutch Underground. Faced with the choice between saving the lives of the people they love and preserving the world's greatest art, Alison discovers an indescribable hope in God amongst the destruction of a world at war.

    Overall, I was rather impressed with Ms. Alexander's novel. I found the story to be quite interesting and the characters well planned and developed. In comparison to many other Christian fiction works related to World War II, Where Treasure Hides also holds the distinction of delving firmly into the topic of art preservation, while remaining relatively believable. Some other works rely heavily on external sources (particularly the recent publications on the Monuments Men), which results in them having generally diluted storylines. In comparison, Ms. Alexander utilizes the strong art background of the main character and her ancestral family to unify the art-inspired elements of the work, creating a natural connection between the overarching storyline and the characters' interaction with world-renowned artwork. The greatest weakness of the novel comes as a result of its generally slower pacing and denser style. Some readers who may enjoy the general storyline concept and the characters, but may be challenged to move through it or even finish it, again depending on their reading pace.

    Special thanks to Tyndale House Publishers for an advanced copy of Where Treasure Hides!

    Thanks!
