From "My Book Bag"
Valeria's Cross is the story of a woman strong enough to bend, but never break. Fulfilling the prophecy of a blind priest, her life becomes a powerful testimony to Christianity. She's not perfect. Costly mistakes are made, which only make her story more believable. But Valeria's ultimate faith in God, and trust in His plan, is a shining example of total submission...all the way to the end.
Not your everyday love story. Based in part on historical events, Valeria's Cross is almost too realistic. It is not an "easy read." Not the book to pick up for an afternoon of escape from reality. Neither lighthearted romance nor edge-of-the-seat suspense. But if you enjoy a well-written book with no promise of a happily ever...if you like an interesting storyline with disturbing undercurrents and a healthy dose of history, this could be the book for you.
You will close the last page determined to be a better, stronger, more dedicated Christian.
