Book Review: All Things Hidden

Will Gwyn handle the new settlers moving into her beautiful Alaskan valley with grace or bitterness?  Will Dr. Vaughn ever be able to face up to the hurtful truths in his past and speak them aloud to Gwyn?  How will Gwyn's father, Dr. Hillerman, treat and care for the hundreds of new people?  These problems and several others are the ones faced in All Things Hidden.

This novel of historical fiction teaches the reader much about the settling of beautiful Alaska in the 1930's when many people were out of work and forced out of their homes during the deep depression.  Many of today's struggles are touched on in this book:  greed, displacement, prejudice, materialism.

I enjoyed All Things Hiddenand hurried to the end in order to find out how the many struggles would be resolved.  Gwyn is a woman of character and integrity even as she wrestles with her personal demons.  A light-handed touch of God's goodness and grace is evident in this book.  An easy, fun read.

I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
