Valenti releases final chapter in trilogy

By: 
CHRIS RODEN FOR THE LACLEDE COUNTY RECORD

Laura Valenti believes in the old adage that writers should write about what they know.
In her “Between the Star and the Cross” series of books, she incorporates her life experiences of working in the Laclede County Jail and as a missionary abroad.
Her latest novel, “Between the Star and the Cross: The Promise,” is the third and last book in the series featuring Sheriff Dale Harper, a character shaped by Valenti’s 10 and a half years working in the jail, and his love interest, Milagro Palacios, a Christian mission director for whom Valenti drew on her time as a missionary in three countries: Mexico, Salvador and Guatemala.
