Where Treasure Hides Book Review

4 out of 5
Historical Fiction

After being raised by her grandfather, now an adult, Alison Schuyler works in her family’s art gallery in the Netherlands. Unable to cope with the death of his wife, Alison's father travels the globe to forget. Alison struggles with what she believes is a curse for the Schuyler family and is determined to avoid the pain it causes. 

While in London, she meets Ian Devlin at Waterloo station just prior to WWII. Ian shows his compassion to a small boy and immediately Allison is drawn to the British Army captain. 

As the war moves in, Ian is on the battlefield while Alison works next to her father and friends with the Dutch Underground. They aid Jewish children and hide priceless art from Hitler's followers.

Where Treasure Hides is an historical novel with elements of love and faith. It is an easy book to get caught up in and reminds us of the presence of evil in the world and the extremes we will go in order to stop it. 

Alison and Ian's story is engaging and I had a hard time putting this book down at the end of a chapter. Johnnie is a marvelous storyteller and I look forward to reading more of her work. Find out more about this book here.
