    When Alice Howard stumbles upon her father's boyhood journal from the early 1900s, she and her two sisters, Louise and Jane, uncover the hidden family history of the beloved Daniel Howard. Through his profound and thoughtful words, they come to see how the power of grace can conquer the past and change the course of a life. Meanwhile, Alice's college boyfriend, Mark Graves, re-enters her life, but will it lead to second-chance romance?

    Story
    Where does Hidden History rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Light story in a small town setting. I had read this book before so it was visiting old friends again. The many people in the town gave the story many layers to it. I enjoy this author and have read several of her books.


    What other book might you compare Hidden History to and why?

    This has the same small town feel as the Mitford series by Jan Karon. Mitford series also does well read aloud.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the aunt's friend showed off her

    Story
    What did you love best about Her Royal Spyness?

    Spunky heroine and the historical setting. She did not wait for someone else to solve her problems.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was in the style of Amelia Pebody series or the Number one ladies' detective series.
    The heroine thinks for her self and thinks outside the box.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the two men came into the house she was working in and her efforts to remain unnoticed.
