STORY-LINE THE ART OF HIDING BY AMANDA PROWSE:
In The Art Of Hiding, Nina McCarrick, has the perfect life. She has everything a woman could want, everything wealth could buy; a loving husband, two wonderful children, a mansion, luxury cars, and money for anything she wants. When Finn, her husband, suddenly dies in an auto accident, her world comes tumbling down. She finds her husband’s broke and she’s bankrupt, without a dime to her name. All she owns will go towards paying 8 million pounds in debts; she and her boys stand on their lawn and watch the creditors and courts take everything. Thrown on the street, life as she knew it, is over forever.
Come along with Nina as she ends up back where she started, reconnects with her sister, holds on day by day, and finally must learn to stand up and take control of her and her boy’s lives. My contemporary book review of The Art Of Hiding follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
I am afraid my review will not do justice to this book. However, I will try to tell you the wonder of this story and Prowse’s talent with prose, plotting, and development. The Art Of Hiding’s a powerfully written story of grief, renewal, and second chances at life. I can’t imagine the feelings of pain and fear this woman felt as she found her life’s destroyed. Nothing would ever be the same again. She’s desperate, with two boys, in unimaginable debt, losing everything she thought mattered.
