Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse Team Up to Deliver a Stunning Depression-Era Drama

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 fianc√© 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. 

ALL THINGS HIDDEN is a historical suspense by master historical writer Tracie Peterson and suspense writer, Kimberley Woodhouse. I was excited to get this book, and anxious to see what this duo would come up with. Gwyn is hurting by the abandonment of her mother and sister six years prior, and Jeremiah is accused of medical malpractice and told--by his own parents--to get out of town. Rejected by his fiancee, he accepts the offer of his mentor and flees to Alaska to provide medical care for the people relocating there due to the depression.

An obvious bad guy, with his own POV, adds mystery and intrigue. I had to keep reading to see how this would all play out.  Recommended for readers of historical suspense. One of the best historical suspenses I've read this year. $14.99 paperback. $9.99 Kindle. 352 pages. 5 stars.
