The Art of Hiding - Amanda Prowse
The Art of Hiding is another first-class novel from Amanda Prowse and as always one that will pull at your heartstrings.
Nina has a wonderful life, a gorgeous house, two wonderful boys and a husband, Finn, who spoils them all. When Finn is killed in a car accident Nina is naturally devastated, she's lost the man she loves and just when she thinks things can't get any worse she finds out that Finn has been hiding a terrible secret and one that will change Nina's and her boys lives.
Struggling with the knowledge that Finn has left her with nothing, Nina reaches out to her sister Tiggy, and she finds herself back in her old neighbourhood, on a run-down estate, a place she never thought she'd return to and certainly not living there.
The new life that Nina finds herself living isn't an easy one by any means, but with the help of family and friends she starts to turn things around and realises that money isn't everything. It's the things that money can't by that are the most valuable.
This is a novel that will leave you thinking about your own life as well as questioning how you would cope if you were unfortunate enough to find yourself in a similar situation. The Art of Hiding is an uplifting book concentrating on the importance of family and being surrounded by people who care about and support you when life is rough. Showing that if you have this you can start to put the pieces back together and get through anything. Packed full of wonderful, real characters and filled with emotions this is another enthralling book from Amanda Prowse and of course one that I would highly recommend!
