Product description

About the Author

Shelly Van Meter Miller was born in Owensboro, KY. She graduated from Murray State University with a Bachelor of Science in Speech Communication. After college, she worked as a press aide for a United States Senator in Washington, D.C. before marrying her husband and settling in Madison, Alabama. Together, she and her husband raised three girls in the South. While residing in Huntsville for a quarter of a century, Shelly has seen the destruction caused by violent tornadoes that have affected her life and the lives of those around her. She has watched her town rebuild more than once and considers Alabama her home. She taught aerobics and pregnancy exercise classes throughout the community and even completed a half-marathon. Yes, you read it correctly, "half." She considers that to be good enough. She then homeschooled her children and exercised her writing muscle by grading stacks of research papers. She was fired from that job when her children went to public school. Nowadays, Shelly finds her muse in the garden. She became a Master Gardener to have an excuse to work at what she loves. Her ideal day is spent writing in the garden. Careful, because if you ask her what she does all day, she will say "nothing," unless she is chasing her three cats. This Indie Award Winning Author recently published a new book series Whispered Secrets of the South, Volume One: Montevallo, Alabama is currently available on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tornado Valley: Huntsville's Havoc - is a compelling book--love this book! 2 April 2014
By Daisy S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Since I am a person very much concerned with learning about the weather, mostly severe storms and tornadoes, I had to purchase this book. And from the very beginning of this book, I could not put it down. Because of this very helpful book, I was able to learn about tornadoes and tornado watches and warning and to take these watches and warnings seriously!

What I like most are the different real life stories and accounts of people who have survived tornadoes in Alabama. These inspired me to be STORM READY and be on alert to severe watches (Severe Thunderstorm Watch and also Tornado Watch) and also to be alert and listen (and take seriously) Tornado Warnings.

If you live in area that receives severe weather or tornadoes, this is a must read book.
If you want to learn more about tornadoes and how what happens to the the survivors, this is also a must read book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read!! Fast Paced!! 25 Jan. 2014

Three Cheers for Ms Millers new book. Tightly woven, well edited,and very well researched. She even wrote an Index of sources for her information. That's something so many writers neglect to do. This should be required reading for anyone considering a relocation to Dixie Alley or Tornado Alley or any where in tornado country. She's taken the true facts plus her own experiences and feelings and woven a tight cohesive story. She truly tells it like it is, the true gritty reality of terror, pain, and loss. Plus the strength of the people,rock bound in their faith in God, that keeps them rebuilding and remaining despite the tornadoes. M Coy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read... brought back many memories of all our storms.... 24 Oct. 2013
By Harriette M. Glover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very well written and accurate. Enjoyed this book very much! Having lived in North Limestone County, AL, since 1974, and subsequently survived the April 27th storms unscathed, this was a great read for me.... Two friends and I were blessed to start a disaster relief center on Sunday after the storms (North Alabama Disaster Relief of Ardmore aka NADRA) and with the support of our community and Mr. Mickey Fowler of Fowler's Auction, through social media, we were able to deliver donated supplies to all across Alabama from Harvest to Hackleburg, to Tuscaloosa, to East Limestone, to Flat Rock. So many stories to be told with every storm and every survivor.... This author did well with hers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 25 Feb. 2013
By Danae1972 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am one of those GRITS like she mentions in the book, I was born and raised in Huntsville and her descriptions of the events really takes you back to that time period. I love her stories, especially when she derails on a tangent, it makes it so fun to go back to a simpler time when kids were just kids without all the video games, tv shows, etc.

The area is still recovering from the "Day of Devastation" and probably will for quite some time. The trees are still stunted and twisted when you drive through the areas, several houses are just abandoned with no windows and falling apart where people didn't have insurance and were too poor to rebuild. It's truly heartbreaking to see. The rest of the world moves on (and sometimes we do too) but driving through those areas you really realize that it changed everything for those people who were run over by a tornado.

Great book, enjoyed reading it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tragedy and triumph in the face of catastrophe 6 Dec. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book, while being perhaps a bit wordy, evoked a response in me for which I was not fully prepared. I found the descriptions of absolute devastation to be far less emotional than the stories of Americans helping Americans. It is a testament to who we are and what makes us great. Nature, at its absolute worst squares off with Americans at their absolute (for the most part) best and we prevail. The book is at once heart-rending and uplifting...it is a look at the indomitable human spirit in all its glory. Major catastrophies will always plague us, it's just a fact of life, but as long as we stand proud and united, shoulder to shoulder they will never break us. A solid four stars for this one.
