Review: The Inn at Hidden Run by:Olivia Newport

 The Inn at Hidden Run (Tree of Life #1)
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Review:
A Father-Daughter Genealogy Team Link Present to Past on Family Trees

Meri's family has been producing doctors for so many generations that no one remembers why, so when she flunks out of medical school, she runs as far from her parents as she can get. In the small mountain town of Canyon Mines, Colorado, she takes a job at the Inn at Hidden Run B&B. And waits. It's only a matter of time.

What she doesn't count on is genealogist Jillian Parisi-Duffy and her father, Nolan, having her back when it takes everything she has not to bolt again but to stay and face the truth that only unfolding her family's history will reveal. While Nolan works on keeping Meri calm--and in town--Jillian pulls out of her gems of information she doesn't know she has and arranges the puzzle pieces.

But none of that changes the fact that Meri's family is closing in to haul her back to her "real" life. When their arrival inflames tensions and Meri finally does bolt, Nolan and Jillian may be out of time.

The Inn at Hidden Run is the first book in the Tree of Life series. Readers will come back to backdrop of a lovely mountain town of Canyon Mines again and again to explore and celebrate unforgettable family stories that inspire them to connect with their own family histories and unique faith journeys.

My Review:
 This book takes place in two different periods of time. One being modern day Colorado and the other in the 1870's in Memphis, Tennessee. A very dramatic story of a family and their issues. Not any different than any of our families, though. Meri is a drifter of sorts. She cant stick to relationships like many people are familiar with or use to. When things get to be too much for her she runs. Plain and simple. 

 Meri feels like a failure most of the time but when she flunked out of medical school she really felt like throwing in the towel on her entire life--why try anymore was her attitude. But she pushed through it ever so mildly. But this go around she wanted to be on her own to figure things out. She got a job at an old B&B. but she knows her family will interfere soon, its only a matter of time.

 This story plays out much like a dramatic movie. It has several highs and lows in the story line but it was still a good, strong story that hold your attention. A great read, overall!
