Guest Review ~ A Hidden Truth by Judith Miller

A Hidden Truth

series: Home to Amana

Reviewed by Sharonne Payne

I really enjoyed Judith Miller's book, A Hidden Truth. I have never heard of the Amana Colonies before. It was very interesting to learn how they lived and worked.

I enjoyed all the characters, but I think the way Anton learned to control his temper was great. In fact, I was thinking that quoting the 23rd Psalm might be good for me when I get irritated and want to say something I shouldn’t. LOL

I can also relate to Dovie’s interest in her mother’s reason for leaving the Colonies because I enjoy family histories. At first I did not understand the attitude of her cousin Louise, but as I read more about the lifestyle of the people in the Colonies I understood where she was coming from.

Now I am wondering what happened to Jacob and his sister. Was he falling in love with Dovie? Perhaps we will meet him again in another book? I guess I will have to wait and see. I will look forward to reading more in this series.

    I've been saying the Lord's prayer under my breath today. A great way to get through the good and less then good moments.
