Hidden is the story of a young girl named Anna who is on the run from an abusive, yet powerful boyfriend. She takes shelter at an Amish Bed and Breakfast where she attempts to blend in while she sorts out her life. While there, she also meets a handsome young Amish man and they share a powerful attraction.
If you're a big fan of Amish Christian Fiction, don't expect to find a tremendous amount of detail in this book. It's a very fast and light read. I have to admit that while I enjoyed it, I still found certain aspects of it to be pretty unrealistic. Having said that, you can still get some of the Amish ambiance from the book and it has a nice love story. It's slender in size and very easy to tuck in your purse so you might enjoy reading it while waiting at the doctor's office or something.
The writing style is pretty straightforward as well, no stunning prose to be found, but nothing terribly distracting either.
It does have a gorgeous cover!
Hidden was published by Avon Inspire an imprint of Harper Collins and is available now.
