Set in Alaska during Roosevelt's administration, All Things Hidden is the story of the Matanuska Project, (By the way, I already returned the library book, dumb move I know, so I am most likely going to slaughter the spelling in this post. My apologies!) and all that went on there. Gwyn has lived in Alaska for most of her life, and she is unsure about all the changes that FDR's new plan will bring. But when this plan brings a handsome young doctor, she might just change her mind. Unfortunately, Jeremiah has secrets, and he isn't sure he can tell Gwyn or her father, secrets that include a broken engagement with Gwyn's little sister.
5 stars for this book!
1: I've never read an Alaska book set in this time period, so I enjoyed very much getting to learn about this. I honestly never knew, or never realized that I knew, I might have learned in school, about this! It was crazy, but in an kinda cool way.
2: I'm pretty sure that my favorite character in the whole story was Nasnana. She was so sweet and wise and funny and grandmothery and perfectly perfect! Oh my word!!!! I love love loved the spiritual guidance that she gave to Gwyn and Sadzi!
3: I was reading this book and I kept reading things about Gwyn and being.... Oops that's so me! The worry (Although I'm not in the habit of destroying my hankies! She definitely had it worse than I do!) and the hatred of change.......
4: Well, I'm not going to lie... I didn't actually cry over one unexpected death, simply because I didn't believe it happened. I'm serious. I think I went into denial over a book. What?!?!
5: See how pretty the cover is??? Don't you just love this! I wish I owned this book. Argh!
