Hidden Places by Lynn Austin


Eliza, a widow, struggles to feed her three children and run the family orchard. It’s 1931 and the bank threatens to foreclose on her mortgage.

Then a stranger, Gabe, knocks on her door. He seems to know how to do everything required and will work for food and shelter. Her children love him and so does Eliza.

But there’s something about Gabe. Is he really who he proclaims to be?

This touching story set during the Great Depression gripped me with its mystery and romance.
