A wonderful story if you love people. It's no wonder this was made into a Hallmark TV movie, but don't let that put you off. It's better to pretend this is a book that only you have discovered.

Noah Locke, a native of Georgia, has returned from WWII where he was a member of the division which liberated Dacha. His mama and daddy are dead and his brother is in jail so he becomes a wondering fish seller and listener. His wandering takes him to Bowerstown Community in North Carolina where he meets friends, gets a job, and becomes known as a master at fishing. This Southern novel has its twists to hold hold my interests. Hey, it's a Terry Kay, and made my day.

I only recently discovered Terry Kay (where have I been?) and I'm on my fourth book right now. The Valley of Light was exactly what I expected from Kay--good writing, perhaps even great. Should I ever write a novel, I would hope it would be as good as this one.

This is the story of a young man who has returned from WWII and is roaming around the Southern part of the U.S. He meets someone who tells him about a wonderful fishing spot and he travels to this area. In this area he meets warm and friendly people and he makes a decision about his future life. It is a warm story told in the slower pace of life back in the 40s and well written. It is only 248 pages. Because I enjoyed this book, I read another of his books, "Taking Lottie Home".
