When Anna decides it's time to leave her abusive boyfriend, she doesn't know where to turn. Rob has completely won over her parents, and the entire community, with his good looks and smooth charm. Only Anna has seen his dark side. Desperate, she runs to the only place she's ever felt completely safe, the Amish Brenneman Bed and Breakfast, where Anna met life-long friend Katie Brenneman. The family welcomes her in, and with few questions asked allows her to stay, dressed in plain clothing, and help around the inn. Katie's older brother Henry is the only one who doesn't take too kindly to the intrusion. He tries to ignore Anna, knowing no good would ever come from caring for an Englisher like her. But as he gets to know Anna, he discovers her good heart and is surprised with her readiness to accept their lifestyle. The more time Anna spends with the Amish, the more she feels she's found a true home. But how can she deny the life she left behind?

Could not tear myself away until it was finished!
Hidden (Sisters of the Heart, Book 1) by Shelley Shepard Gray was a great read!

Loved the very descriptive friendship between Anna and her Amish friend Katie and the insight and growth of character of Anna when she escapes her abusive boyfriend and goes to Katie and her family.

I think this would be an excellent book for teen girls to read how to recognize the signs of one of those abusive creeps like Anna's boyfriend and how their sick minds work!Hopefully it will make young women promise themselves to never take that crap from any man.

The story had a lot of sweetness to it but also some edge-of-your-seat suspense.

Highly recommend this book and I definitely intend to read the other two books and more by this author! I also loved her Amish mystery series~the Secrets of Crittenden County trilogy.
