The Art of HidingThe Art of Hiding by Amanda Prowse
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Nina McCarrick was a typical homemaker and soccer mom that spent all her time taking care of her kids and family, that is until the day her husband was involved in a horrible accident that took his life. Dealing with his loss was bad enough for Nina and the kids but shortly after her husband passed away Nina finds that their finances were not what she had thought they were.

Left alone to raise the kids with no job and no savings Nina helplessly has to watch as their possessions get taken away. Without any where else to turn Nina packs up what was left of the luxurious life she had once known and heads to Southampton to the rundown area she grew up in and the sister she had left behind when setting out for her new life with her husband that is now gone and she wonders if she ever knew at all.

The Art of Hiding is actually the first book that I’ve read by Amanda Prowse although I’ve noticed her work before but just hadn’t taken the time to read any. Being an established author with so many books in print I went into this one expecting to enjoy it and thankfully I really did.

The story in this book starts off a rather sad one with the family being torn apart with the loss of Nina’s husband and you can’t help but feel for her and the kids. But what I enjoyed the most was the growth that was shown in overcoming so many obstacles afterward instead of just giving up. I found this one inspirational and quite compelling to read and will certainly look for more work by this author in the future.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

    • Well if you’re ever in the mood for a contemporary read she’s definitely got a good solid writing style that was easy to get into. I happened to get an invite on this one so figured it was a good time to try yet another author I hadn’t gotten around to yet. 🙂
