After suffering through Lynn Austin’s ‘Candle In The Darkness’, I was not very anxious to start Hidden Places. It was only after my sister’s assurance that ‘it was not that bad’ that I finally started reading it.
Around Page 30 I rolled my eyes because things were laying out in a predictable manner. Enter handsome stranger who steals the heart of a strong woman. Ugh.
This book was saved by the side character Aunt Batty (Betsy, Betty). She is fabulous, and I loved her faith and her strength.
Though things were looking predictable, there were a few surprises. One I guessed when she started juggling. The last I was never 100% sure of until he disclosed it himself.
So read, and enjoy, it’s not that bad!
