About the Author
I’ve tried many times to analyze the phenomenon of tragedy – how a single moment, a single event, a single word can forever alter the shape of one’s world. The mind struggles to comprehend, yet it revolts. The heart will not accept what reason insists is fact. Then, slowly, at intervals, the facts begin to seep down from the numbed brain into the heart, bringing a kind of paralysis. At the same time comes a vague, nagging sense of guilt. Why me? Why us? are the questions that intrude, again and again. Where did we fail? Was there something we could have done that we didn’t do? Is God punishing us?
What People are Saying About This
“Your book shocked me. It’s written with emotional language people understand. There are answers to many painful questions: Why do I have to suffer so much? Why can’t I be happy? I think your understanding of God’s Word and its incarnation in your life helps many people believe in God and not to grumble at the suffering, which He sends us.
“God evidently entrusts some of His choice servants with gut-wrenching suffering so that the whole body will be strengthened. Valetta’s willingness to be transparent and vulnerable enables us to see her tenacious hope in a trustworthy God. We see radiance through tears and light in the darkness. Her faith through what could have been totally devastating experiences makes the reality of a personal relationship with a personal God clear. This book is deep, heart and personal, a must for all who are walking a journey of heartbreak and suffering.”

I find it too hard to explain in English, but even in Russian it would not be much easier I think. It (Another Victory, Another Valley) has made an atheist read the Bible in a completely different way – not just as a literary relic but as something much more profound and meaningful. The story is so astonishingly frank and open-hearted, and touching, and horrible, and encouraging at the same time.
