You will get so caught up in the story of Marilyn VanHoosen and her stay in Trudeau Sanitorium as she recovers from tuberculosis and unravels the mystery of her family that you might ignore your own family for a day or two. Just give them the book for their own reading pleasure when you're done. They'll understand.
Somehow, with a main character that is mostly bed-ridden, All That We Hide manages to take the reader all across the country and into the hearts and minds of complicated and endearing characters.
Did Marilyn's mother intend for Marilyn to get tuberculosis? Why did her father disappear? Will Henry, the nice young man that Marilyn is starting to develop feelings for, survive? You will feel just as breathless as Marilyn as the answers to these questions start to unfold.
