Publishers Description After twelve years of missionary work in the northeast province of what was the Belgian Congo, building up a simple medical service, civil war erupted with horrific effects. During the war Helen was brutally beaten and raped and left with no choice but to return to Britain (this story is told in 'Give me this Mountain'). She quickly returned to the Congo in 1966 to assist in the rebuilding of the nation. She helped establish a new medical school and hospital (for the other hospitals that she built were destroyed) and served there until 1973. In the eight years following the war, despite endless frustrations, again and again God showed his unfailing guidance and unstinted provision for her needs. This book is the story of the joys and adventures of re-establishing the medical work, the church building programme and the work of forgiveness, necessary after the destruction of the civil war.

Reviews - What do customers think about He Gave Us A Valley?
Inspiring and challenging - hard to put down Oct 11, 2007
I finished "Give Me This Mountain" in three days and immediately began reading "He Gave Us a Valley." The account of Dr. R's experience under captivity during the Simba rebellion was just enough to give the depth of horror, without being unnecessarily descriptive or grusome. Her counsel to the nun with her in captivity was a prime example of someone who is full of grace and dead to self, to be able to see her own suffering as a means of being Christ's flesh, protecting someone else from suffering. I am moved, convicted, and inspired by her story, and can't wait to read "Digging Ditches." I am on this site today to buy a copy of "He Gave Us A Valley" for a doctor and a medical student I know - I am praying they will follow in Dr. Roseveare's footsteps.
I like Dr. Roseveare and her writings but... May 12, 2007
this is not one of her best. "Give Me This Mountain" was much, much better. This one lacks more of her personality and well told stories that fill her other books, and I found little inspiration or personal challenge that I have encountered in her other writings and talks. It was good to fill in a few gaps left by "Give Me This Mountain", but I was disappointed overall.
