All Things Hidden by Tricia Goyer
Charlotte is cleaning out the basement of Bedford Community Church when she comes across a tattered and yellowed newspaper article. The clipping, published more than a century ago, implicates her great-great-grandfather in the loss of funds intended to help finish building the church. Charlotte has heard stories about the incident through the years, but now it seems the past has come back to haunt her. Is it just her imagination or are people treating her differently now that they think she's descended from a crook? Will Charlotte be able to clear her family's name once and for all?
Meanwhile, Sam is spending time with a new girl in town-and is keeping secrets from his grandparents about where they go. Christopher is trying to get an article published in the local paper, and Emily reluctantly partners with a foreign exchange student on a class project and eventually comes to see that they're not that different after all. As old secrets are brought to light, the whole family is reminded that the truth is often more complicated than it seems.
Come home to Heather Creek. Get to know Charlotte Stevenson, who is raising her grandchildren on the family farm after a tragic accident changes all of their lives forever. With the help of her husband Bob and a close-knit circle of friends, she will do whatever it takes to keep this fragile family together. See how God, who makes the sun rise and the crops grow, watches over our lives too.

All Things Hidden is the first book I have read by the author Tricia Goyer. Right from the first page, the story of Charlotte and her family and friends made me want to be a part of their community. Even though I have not read any other books in the Heather Creek series, it still was easy to follow along. Being a grandmother myself, I can't imagine what life would be like to raise my grandchildren, but Charlotte did it with such enthusiasm, energy and grace. Not only was it an enjoyable read, but it also has some valuable life lessons hidden in the pages.
My rating - 4 out of 5 stars
