VALKYRIES tells the story of a teenage girl in the '70s who commits herself to Jesus at a tent meeting and is then immediately plunged into her family's traumatic breakup, which results in violent abuse from her father and neglect from her mother. Finally sent away to a Catholic boarding school for girls, Tracey recognizes some hard truths about her own anger and her inability to possess inner goodness - in spite of being a Christian. She also discovers, in the course of things, an unexpected talent for basketball. About the title: The Valkyrie, a female warrior from Norse mythology, is the basketball team's mascot - but this mythological figure takes on much deeper significance for Tracey as she struggles for spiritual victory.

"What's that?" Tracey asked. "The Valkyrie." Mrs. Murdoch said. "It's the school's mascot." "What's a Valkyrie ?" It comes from Norse mythology. The Valkyries were the shield maidens who kept the halls of heaven. Odin could glorify himself through women warriors because He was the source of their strength and power." The idea sent a thrill of hope into Tracey. She wondered if Godthe real God, the Father of Jesusdid things like that. Abused by her father. Ignored by her mother. Exiled to a school for girls who are discipline problems. Forgotten by friends in the church where she had hastily converted from Catholicism to what she believed to be the true faith. Hazed by fellow students. Harassed by acting principal Sister Mary Mercy. Streetwise freshman Tracey Jacamuzzi knows that if anyone discovers the whole truth about her, they'll give up on her entirely. She isn't so sure they'd be wrong. This is where Tracey's story beginsbut certainly not where it ends. Because God has set His sights on this young woman. And His plan is to use all of her experiences to draw her to Himself. Along the way, He enlists the help of some unlikely friends. In Some Through the Fire and its sequel, All Through the Blood, readers will recognize God's determination to turn a rough-and-tumble survivor of a sordid past into a good Valkyrie through and through.
