    The Inn at Hidden Run

    The Inn at Hidden Run is the first installment from Olivia Newport’s new series, Tree of Life. I have other books by her in the past and this one is by far my favorite. As a genealogist myself, I loved the story line. I give The Inn at Hidden Run five stars. I look forward to the next addition to the Tree of Life series. I recommend this one to other readers. I received this book from the publisher, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

    What wonderful information lies in your genealogy?

    ‘What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.’ Micah 6:8 NIV Meriwether Eliza Davies, Meri, arrives in Canyon Mines, Colorado from Tennessee. How she got her name and why it seems so important that she should be a doctor is information she doesn’t have and is not sure she even wants to know. What follows is a wonderful unraveling of her family genealogy all the way back to 1909 Memphis, Tennessee. So many questions are answered that it really made me wonder why we don’t all search out our genealogy. Perhaps we, like Meri, would understand the calling on our lives. This fabulous book is the first in the author’s Tree of Life series. With such an auspicious beginning, I am certainly looking forward to the next book! I received this book through Barbour Publishing, NetGalley and CelebrateLit. The impressions and opinions given are my own.

    Interesting Dual-Time Fiction

    Split-time or dual-time novels have become quite popular in the last few years and this book is a new addition to this genre. Olivia Newport sets her modern day story at the Inn at Hidden Run B&B in Canyon Mills, Colorado and the characters include a genalogist, her father, and the inn owners as they help a young woman who has run away from her Tennessee home. Meri Davies has flunked out of medical school and she needs to escape her family's disappointment so she begins by taking a job at the inn. As they try to help and encourage her, Jill and her father Nolan begin to research Meri's family history and the reasons why her parents are so insistent that she become a doctor. The historical element in this book involves a young woman in Memphis, Tennessee who made it her mission to help during the yellow fever epidemic that struck Memphis in 1878. Eliza Davies was from a well-to-family and she could easily have left Memphis like so many others but she stayed to help the people who had no means to escape. Eliza ministered to the poor and to African-Americans who had once been slaves and she especially loved caring for the children. There is a touching scene near the end of the book that demonstrates how her love affected the ones she helped. As one of "her children" thanks her for changing his life, Eliza says "I only did what the Lord asked of me. 'What doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?'" This very emotional scene also weaves together the past and the present in a very satisfactory way! I love historical fiction so I especially enjoyed Eliza's story. Newport shares a lot of historical information about the devastation that resulted from the yellow fever epidemic and much of it is new to me. This book is the first in the Tree of Life series and each story will include the Inn at Hidden Run B&B as the basis for the current day storyline. I enjoyed getting to know Jill, Nolan, Nia and Leo and I look forward to seeing how author Olivia Newport uses the inn and genealogy to share more dual-time stories. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

    An intriguing mix of past and present

    I really enjoyed this, my first book by this author. I will definitely look forward to the next books in the series. A story of a young, modern-day woman searching for her calling in life (when others seem to have it all figured out for her), side-by-side with the story of her family's roots (though that part wasn't immediately apparent). I loved how the father-daughter, mediator/genealogist duo played such a big part in helping Meri, and her family, come to grips with the questions facing her. Great scene-setting and historical detail. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. All thoughts and opinions are mine alone.

    Discovering Who You Are

    Wish I had some one like Jillian to help me with my genealogy I love the way this split time novel fits all the pieces together perfectly like a jigsaw puzzle that you can’t wait to finish to see the complete picture. I was drawn into this story from the get go and found the characters charming. I love the addition of a glossy picture with river boats in the beginning of the book. It is a nice touch, as I looked at it and imagined the setting. I also loved the relationship aspects of the story between family, friends, new acquaintances, and with God. The past intertwines with the present to show it’s okay to be who God created you to be. Our identity is found in Him. This is the first book in the new Tree of a Life Series. I’ll anxiously await the next one. I received a complimentary copy from the author/CelebrateLit. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.
