I’m starting back with my Short Synopsis Posts, only now it will be Short Synopsis Saturday instead of Sunday. Today’s Short Snyopsis Saturday is featuring ALL THINGS HIDDEN,
by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse.
I love books from Bethany House – They are always uplifting, and free from objectionable language and content. If you prefer reading books that are “wholesome” and entertaining, then Bethany House if for YOU!
I enjoy historical fiction and have always wanted to visit Alaska, so All Things Hidden was a special treat for me. Peterson and Woodhouse incorporated facts on The Matanuska Project, into this fictional work. Mixing in geographical descriptions and local culture from that time period, makes for an interesting and delightful read.
I especially enjoyed the relationship of the female main character (Gwyn), her childhood friend Sadzi, and her “mother stand-in”, Nasnanna.
Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse Team Up to Deliver a Stunning Depression-Era Drama
Gwyn Hillerman loves being a nurse at her father’s clinic on the beautiful Alaskan frontier. But family life has been rough ever since her mother left them, disdaining the uncivilized country and taking Gwyn’s younger sister with her.
In Chicago, Dr. Jeremiah Vaughan finds his life suddenly turned upside down when his medical license is stripped away after an affluent patient dies. In a snowball effect, his fiance breaks their engagement. In an attempt to bury the past, Jeremiah accepts Dr. Hillerman’s invitation to join his growing practice in the isolated Alaska Territory.
Gwyn and Jeremiah soon recognize a growing attraction to each other. But when rumors of Jeremiah’s past begin to surface, they’ll need more than love to face the threat of an uncertain future.
