What The Valley Knows
Heather Christie
Publication date: January 25th 2018
Genres: Romance, Young Adult

Millington Valley is a quintessential small Pennsylvania town: families go back generations. Football rules. Kids drink while adults look the other way. High school is a whirlwind of aspiration and rivalry, friendship and jealousy.

When smart and pretty Molly Hanover moves to town and attracts the attention of the football team’s hero, Wade Thornton—a nice guy with a bad drinking habit—longtime friendships are threatened and a popular cheerleader tries to turn the school against Molly.

The young couple’s future is shattered when Wade, drunk, wrecks his truck and Molly is thrown through the windshield. She wakes from a coma to find her beauty marred and her memory full of holes. As she struggles to heal, she becomes sure that something terrible happened before the accident. And there is somebody in the valley who doesn’t want her to remember.

MY REVIEW

This is the first book by Heather Christie that I have read and I have to say oh my!  This book was so good.  A roller coaster of emotions.  The author took her time building up the story and the characters.  I was drawn in from the very beginning of the book.

Molly just moved to Millington  Valley.  She is very shy and quiet.  But when she catches the attention of the star football player Wade, she quickly becomes hated and bullied by the cheerleaders.

The something terrible happens and Molly doesn’t know who to turn to.  The night she asks Wade to help turns into a horrible nightmare.  Wade wrecks the truck before she can confide in him and she is hurt badly.  When she wakes, her life is wrecked and there are so many  holes in her memory.  She is so unhappy that she pushes Wade away.  Will she be able to fill in the gaps and become whole again?

This book was definitely an emotional one.  Molly is one strong girl.  To endear all that she went through and still find the courage to move forward, is an amazing feat.  Wade has a tough road as well and he pushes forward.  Both strong characters making an amazing story.  A journey together healing and the bond of love that brings them together.

This book is not your cozy romance.  It is deep and dark.  It really relates to the problems of teenagers with popularity and beauty.  Not to mention the aspects of substance abuse and loss.  I was not expecting this book to be so in-depth.  But with the way the author wrote the book building everything up slowly draws you in and holds your interest tightly.  A small town drama rolled up with the romance of young love and the obstacles they have to overcome.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a good drama with deep emotion.  I am a new fan for sure.
