Hidden in the Heart: an LDS Novel

"I bet a round of golf you couldn‟t make a date with her by, say, the end of the week."

The most horrific event of Cathee's life brought her it's most precious gift - her daughter.  Several years later she is still dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder and struggling as a single mother.  Taking a small vacation seems safe enough, uneventful even.  But that was before she met Garrett.  Garrett is a therapist speaking at the conference at the same hotel.  For him, though, the idea of tagging along with Cathee and her daughter is more appealing than another set of lectures he knows by heart.  Will they be able to overcome their pasts and work towards a future?  And when the past rears its ugly head, will they even have a chance to find out?

My Opinion: I felt like this book took on too much within the confines of a single novel.  With deep and emotional issues ranging from rape, post traumatic stress syndrome, death, and more, I became overwhelmed with the heavy emotions.  There was an interesting premise behind this book and it had some action and excitement to it, but I didn't get a balance of sweet with the serious.  The characters had a good interaction but the romance was light.  As a note, as indicated in subtitle, the LDS influence was very strong in this story.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
