THE HIDDEN SIDE by Heidi Chiavaroli, Reviewed by Kim
This is Heidi’s second book and I am just amazed! I am sure this book will be one of my top reads for 2018. This is a time slip novel and both stories are equally engaging and heartbreaking. The message of finding peace through God, even when life is not what we would hope for or expect, is beautifully done in both stories.
As soon as I started reading, I was immediately hooked. Both stories draw you in and you just want to keep reading to find out what happens. My heart actually ached while reading these stories (especially when I realized there could be no normal HEA at the end) and brought me to tears. I am still thinking about the characters.
This book is so well written, so raw, and so real. I think it will make you put yourself in others shoes before you judge and condemn them and you will definitely have more compassion for others. Amazing!!

Natalie Abbott offers answers for hurting listeners on her popular radio program. But she struggles to connect with her teenagers, with her daughter in an unhealthy relationship and her son uncommunicative and isolated. When one member of the family commits an unspeakable act, Natalie is forced to uncover who she truly is under the façade of her radio persona.
New York, 1776
Mercy Howard is shocked when her fiancé, Nathan Hale, is arrested and hanged as a spy. When she’s asked to join the revolutionary spy ring in Manhattan, she sees an opportunity to avenge Nathan’s death. But keeping her true loyalties hidden grows increasingly harder as the charming Major John Andre of the King’s Army becomes more to her than a target for intelligence.
Mercy’s journals comfort Natalie from across the centuries as both women struggle with their own secrets and shame, wondering how deep God’s mercy extends.
