Image result for the hidden side

I have to admit, when I received this book and saw the cover I was concerned that I would not like it. I needed to remember the saying, "Do not judge a book by its cover". 

I found The Hidden Side to be a book like none I had ever read. The author, Heidi Chiavaroli, weaves a modern tale of a family affected by the violence of their son participating in a school shooting, and the story of Mercy Howard, a 1700's spy. I know, it might sound like a rather strange combo, but it works, and works well! I was enthralled by both stories and then how they connected at the end was brilliant. I was happy to see that she has another book coming out soon, also with past and modern tales weaved together.

If you are up for trying something different, I highly suggest you give The Hidden Side a shot.

I received this book to review. All opinions are 100% mine.
