All Things Hidden! by Tricia Goyer's

About the Book:

The past is brought to light...

Charlotte is cleaning out the basement of Bedford Community Church when she comes across a tattered and yellowed newspaper article. The clipping, published more than a century ago, implicates her great-great-grandfather in the loss of funds intended to help finish building the church. Charlotte has heard stories about the incident through the years, but now it seems the past has come back to haunt her. Is it just her imagination or are people treating her differently now that they think she's descended from a crook? Will Charlotte be able to clear her family's name once and for all?

Meanwhile, Sam is spending time with a new girl in town-and is keeping secrets from his grandparents about where they go. Christopher is trying to get an article published in the local paper, and Emily reluctantly partners with a foreign exchange student on a class project and eventually comes to see that they're not that different after all. As old secrets are brought to light, the whole family is reminded that the truth is often more complicated than it seems.

Come home to Heather Creek. Get to know Charlotte Stevenson, who is raising her grandchildren on the family farm after a tragic accident changes all of their lives forever. With the help of her husband Bob and a close-knit circle of friends, she will do whatever it takes to keep this fragile family together. See how God, who makes the sun rise and the crops grow, watches over our lives too.

My review:

I was pulled in from the start with this book. All Things Hidden is the 18th book in the Heather Creek series and is the first one I've read. I now intend to read the other 17 begining with #1. Several authors have written books for the series, allowing readers a variety of perspectives on the family and their surroundings. Tricia Goyer has written four of them.  I've read that each book just gets better and better, and after reading this one, I believe it. I love how she pulls you into the story, like it were my own hometown.
Things are not always what they seem in the book but God's presence is always there.
