All Things Hidden

Book description:  "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."

My review:  Not only is this a great story, it has wonderful spiritual truths embedded throughout the book.  A lot of Christian novels do not have many Scripture or Biblical lessons incorporated into the story.  This novel is not one of those.  I was encouraged by the verses and challenged to examine my own life and responses to the circumstances in which God has placed me.  This is a book that I could share with an unbeliever and know that not only would they be reading a great story that will hold their interest, but the seeds of God's Word will be planted into their hearts.  I enjoyed each of the characters and was immediately drawn into each of their lives.  The characters were real and the historical facts that played into the book made the story that much more interesting.  I hope the authors plan to make this a series.  I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
