All Things Hidden By Tracie Peterson & Kimberly Woodhouse Review

I was so glad I was asked to review this book, due to the fact that I was in Alaska and this particular area last summer.  The story is a historical fiction, with some suspense, set in Matanuska Valley in 1935 during President Roosevelt's Alaska Rural Rehabilitation, when 200 families are given land to settle this rural area. Dr. Hillerman and his daughter Gwyn are the areas only medical personal and Gwyn loves the quiet and simplicity of their lives.  Big changes are coming with the influx of people, including a young doctor from Chicago who knows Dr. Hillerman.  Dr. Jeremiah Vaughan has lost all that he built his life around, including his medical license.   Gwyn is anxious and worried about the changes ahead.  A new hospital and more medical staff, will it be a good thing for their area?
I loved that this story showed the difficulties of homesteading and the prejudice against the native Alaskans.  There are twists and turns in the plot, including murder.  It was a quick read and held my attention.
I would rate this book 5 Stars. 
I would like to thank Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing, for their book review program. I received this book for my honest review and did not receive compensation. 
This would be a great book for your homeschool library as well.

Have a great day and weekend!
