Review of Hidden in the Heart by Catherine West

  About Hidden in the Heart:
Everything Claire wants seems to be beyond her reach...
After losing her mother to cancer and suffering a miscarriage soon after, Claire Ferguson numbs the pain with alcohol and pills, and wonders if her own life is worth living.
Adopted at birth, Claire is convinced she has some unknown genetic flaw that may have been the cause of her miscarriage. She must find a way to deal with the guilt she harbors. But exoneration will come with a price. With her marriage in trouble and her father refusing to answer any questions about her adoption, Claire begins the search for her birth mother. For the first time in her life, she really wants to know where she came from. But what if the woman who gave her life doesn't want to be found?
Hidden in the Heart has been nominated for a 2013 Grace Award and is on the long list for an INSPY award.

My Review:
This book made me feel really good.  It had such a happy ending after the way it started out.  Clair is Christmas shopping and runs into and old friend who tells her she has found her birth parents and suggest that , since Clair is also adopted she should search for her also.  Claire is still reeling from several recent losses and has turned to alcohol and prescription drugs for comfort.  She and her husband have separated.  When she takes a trip to Maine, she finds a lot more that she bargained for.  She finds out that GOD really is there for her and that he make ever thing happen for a reason.
I was so happy for Claire; I would love to read more about her and to find out what is in store for her bright future.  This story is filled with so many likable characters.  Great job Catherine West.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
