About the Author:
Hidden is Shelley Shepard Gray’s first novel in her Sisters of the Heart series. Before writing for the inspirational market, Shelley wrote several novels as Shelley Galloway. During this time, her books appeared on the Waldenbooks bestseller list, and she also won the prestigious Reviewers’ Choice Award fromRomantic Times magazine.
Why have I NOT read this series yet?! I can’t believe there is an Amish series out there that I have NOT read! Somebody yell at me please! Oh my goodness! I LOVE Shelley’s work with her Seasons of Sugarcreek series but man oh man….her first book, Hidden, in her first series, Sisters of the Heart,was phenomenal. Utterly phenomenal. She captured me from the first page of the prologue and held me until the final sentence of the last page.
In Hidden, Ms. Gray takes so many emotions, from hurt and abuse, to hope and understanding, and combines them into one fabulous book. Anna was a wonderful character. She was instantly a part of me and I felt her struggles like my own. And sweet, sweet Henry, bless his heart, he was a wonderfully amazing character,too. The secondary characters of this novel really added flavor to the story but not overbearingly so. This book was wonderful! I can’t say that enough!
Through a touchy subject of abuse, and the incredible love of the Amish, Ms. Gray weaves her story of Anna and Henry with vivid detail and care. She mixes Gods redeeming love and mercy through out making this a fantabulous 5 star novel (though I would give it a thousand more!) that NO ONE should miss! If you aren’t already a fan of Shelley Shepard Gray, then please, don’t hesitate to start with this book in her first series….if you are a fan of Shelley Shepard Gray and haven’t read Hidden yet, then I must HIGHLY recommend that you do! I can’t wait to dive into book 2 in this beautiful series, Wanted.
