All Things Hidden

All Things Hidden
by Tracie Peterson & Kimberley Woodhouse

This is a fictional account of a real event, during the Great Depression, Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal Project of the Matanuska Colonization. 

Gwyn Hillerman is a nurse at her fathers clinic on the Alaskan frontier of the 1930's. Dr. Jeremiah Vaughan has had his world turned upside down and has left Chicago to help Dr. Hillerman prepare for the flood of colonists that are coming. 
While a later time period than I typically read, I really enjoyed this story. Gywn and her father were very likeable people, as were the close characters to them. There were struggles of self, of prejudice, and against nature but the Hillerman's focused on God and what His plans were. 
I enjoyed learning a bit about this time in history and wondering how my life would have been, if my grandparents had been chosen to go to Alaska. 

I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
