Review: All Things Hidden by:Peterson/Woodhouse

All Things Hidden
About the Book:
Gwyn Hillerman loves being a nurse at her father's clinic on the beautiful Alaskan frontier. But family life has been rough ever since her mother left them, disdaining the uncivilized country and taking Gwyn's younger sister with her.

In Chicago, Dr. Jeremiah Vaughan finds his life suddenly turned upside down when his medical license is stripped away after an affluent patient dies. In a snowball effect, his fiance breaks their engagement. In an attempt to bury the past, Jeremiah accepts Dr. Hillerman's invitation to join his growing practice in the isolated Alaska Territory.

Gwyn and Jeremiah soon recognize a growing attraction to each other. But when rumors of Jeremiah's past begin to surface, they'll need more than love to face the threat of an uncertain future.

My Review:
 Living in the Alaska territory is anything but heart warming to Gwyn Hillerman. She and her father are there because Gwyn's father has a medical practice and she is his assistant. But being out there with virtually no life but caring for others is just so lonely. She enjoys the landscape there, but it still doesn't make up for the lack of people to visit with.

 This book takes us into what it was like for many families struggling during the Depression and just how much that a faith in God could get through even the simplest of times. Dr. Jeremiah Vaughan has decided to take Dr. Hillerman up on his request to move to Alaska territory and help him with his growing medical practice. Since Dr. Vaughan's life has suddenly became clear, thanks to the undoing of his now ex-fiancĂ© and a patient of his passes away, he decides to make a change.

 Soon after his arrival, things start to change between the two of them, but after his past starts to surface, will this be their undoing? Or will God see to it that they remain together?
