Review: The Hideaway by Laura K. Denton

The Hideaway

Lauren K. Denton’s first novel, The Hideaway published by Thomas Nelson, Nashville, TN, a registered trademark of HarperCollins Christian Publishing Inc. is a USA Today bestseller and recommended by The Blogging Owl.

After her grandmother, Margaret “Mags” Van Buren dies, Sara Jenkins returns home to Sweet Bay, Alabama from her life as an interior designer and shop keeper in New Orleans. Sara is the only living family member and heir to her grandmother’s shabby bed and breakfast home, The Hideaway.

Sara’s journey will resonate with many readers as it did with me.

How well do we know or understand family?

Do we really want or need to know our family legacy?

Are we always sure of where we belong?

How can we be sure of our decisions?

Lauren Denton’s simple storytelling of a young woman finding her place in life and in love is a wonderful first novel. It is only after reading the novel that the reader can appreciate the beauty of the author’s writing. There are many lessons sweetly planted and nurtured in the author’s first novel, The Hideaway about family, love, legacy and home.

I am looking forward to reading her second novel just released this past spring, Hurricane Season.
