Review of

Maud Hart Lovelace's Deep Valley

This well-researched book is full of photos of the real life characters and places on which Lovelace based her Betsy-Tacy series. I've had this book for several years and refer to it often. I always learn something new. A great book to have if you plan a visit to Deep Valley (actually Mankato, MN.) or even if you want to travel there virtually. If you are a Betsy-Tacy fan and buy just one book this should be your "Go To." Simply wonderful! Susan H.

Julie A. Schrader

Julie Schrader grew up and lives in Southern Minnesota. Her interest in history, genealogy, research, and writing led to her first book, The History of the Red Jacket Valley, published in 2001, the same year she established Minnesota Heritage Publishing. Local historical research led to a fascination with author Maud Hart Lovelace and her works resulting in two books, Maud Hart Lovelace’s Deep Valley and Discover Deep Valley.


She edited two volumes of Collected Stories of Maud Hart Lovelace and Delos Lovelace and has republished three out of print books by Lovelace: The Black Angels, One Stayed at Welcome and The Tune is in the Tree. Released in 2020 was the Betsy, Tacy & Friends Paper Doll Book: The Hill Street Collection, illustrated by Eileen Rudisill Miller. She is the co-author of the Boy in Blue: Blue Earth County, MN Civil War Memorial on the history and re-creation of Mankato's Civil War memorial.
