Review - All Things Hidden

All Things Hidden
By: Tracie Peterson & Kimberly Woodhouse
Publisher: Bethany House
Pub. Date: January 7, 2014
ISBN: 978-0764211195
Pages: 352


Arriving in bookstores earlier this year is All Things Hidden written by Tracie Peterson and Kimberly Woodhouse. I'm a fan of Tracie Peterson's Heirs of Montana series, so I eagerly signed up to review this book.

All Things Hidden centers on a young nurse named Gwyn Hillerman, who has been working at her father's clinic in Alaska.
Business at the clinic picks up with the Matanuska Project occurred, where 200 families were relocated to Alaska in 1935.

The novel jumps to Chicago and centers on Dr. Jeremiah Vaughan, who has just lost his medical license after the death of a patient. Shortly after losing his job, his fiancee calls off their engagement. Out the of blue, he receives a job opportunity from Dr. Hillerman to join his clinic in the Alaska Territory. Dr. Vaughan accepts the offer, as his career doesn't have any other choice.

Remember this is a love story, so it isn't too long after Dr. Vaughan's arrival that sparks fly between him and Gwyn.

Is it just me, or does the woman (Gwyn) on the cover resemble Alice from Disney's Alice in Wonderland? Minus the nurses hat she is holding on to, the outfit looks just like Alice's.

Anyway, this isn't the first Tracie Peterson novel set in Alaska, so she must love the state or have ancestors from there. The book is beautifully written by Peterson and her co-author, Kimberly Woodhouse, though there are a few romantic cliches here and there, the overall plot is nicely done. Overall, All Things Hidden was a delight to read for me last month; on a cold winter afternoon with a hot cup of coffee nearby.
