    Wow. I am a bit speechless and already feel sorry for whatever my next book might be. The Hidden Side is a time slip novel and begins in the present day. I was drawn in immediately. How many Christian Fiction novels do you know that mention hiding Virginia Slims on page one? The ent...

    6/5 stars. I started Heidi Chiavaroli?s novel weeks ago and found myself unable to continue?but not for the reasons you might assume. I just wasn?t in the right frame of mind and I knew?KNEW?this was one of those books that had tremendous power and there would be no going b...

    Heidi Chiavaroli caught my attention last year with her debut novel, Freedom?s Ring, and I can easily say that she surpassed herself with The Hidden Side. I admit that it took me several days to read the first fifty pages, not because it was a slow read or not keeping my attention, b...

    The Hidden Side is a powerful, grab you by the heart, kind of story. In actuality, it is two stories as it is a time-split novel, and both storylines are equally compelling. This was not an emotionally easy novel for me to read. But if you are looking for a book that will stretch yo...

    There have been a few books I?ve read in the last year that I just want to give either the author or the publisher a bravery medal for?this book is one of those. Tackling a sensitive subject that has hit too many close to home, school shooting are becoming all too frequent and are ...

    I received the first "official" copy of this book, my sophomore novel, a few days ago. No matter how I try, I can't resist reading it through one more time! I'm pleased to be able to put The Hidden Side in the hands of my readers in just one month from today! This story pushed me ou...

    To say I enjoyed this novel (which is true) seems to fall flat for the depth of subject matter explored in The Hidden Side. Both the historical and contemporary pieces were equally well written, but I was drawn to the contemporary one even more, which is rare for this fan of histfic. W...

    Heidi Chiavaroli has written another poignant novel that slips between a heart-wrenching present-day story and a tragic one set during the Revolutionary War. The Hidden Side explores the raw humanness of characters who are confronted with unimaginable sorrow and the secrets they keep t...

    Author Heidi Chiavaroli gave me an Advance Reader Copy of her latest book, THE HIDDEN SIDE, a split time novel, available May 8, 2018 from Tyndale House Publishers. My mind is still reeling and grappling with these two tough stories: Mercy Howard, a spy for the Patriots during the Amer...

    Heidi Chiavaroli has left an indelible mark on my heart with her second novel. I attribute this primarily to the emotional depth she employs in her writing. Full Review: http://bit.ly/hiddenside ...

    There are some stories that I can't begin to imagine the journey the author went through to write them. There's a certain responsibility when writing difficult stories because at the same time you're not assuming to know what it means to go through these situations, you want the reader...

    I won this book from Goodreads Kindle Giveaways. I love historical fiction and I was intrigued that this novel was set during the Civil War for part of the story and then the other half was set in modern day. This is also a Christian Fiction novel. I don't want to give away spoilers bu...

    This story was heavy?it is the kind of story that will stay with me for a long time and caused me to think a lot about the issues that were presented. I had a hard time getting into the story?it took me about 150 pages to really start to enjoy it but once I hit that point, I fle...

    "You are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory." (p 365) I'm not even sure how to review this one. So much to say but I really can't without posting a whole bunch of spoilers and I think it's best to experience The Hidden Side as the sto...

    Wow. This book. As I started flipping pages I realized how much this book was not what I was expecting, it was better! This is a dual timeline, which I love! The modern day story line was the one I really got into, though both are good. This story takes you right into the middle of the...

    Heidi Chiavaroli did an amazing job of writing dual storylines that paralleled one another in theme (hiding one's true self). Although the settings and events were vastly different, the characters in the present and past experienced the same emotions throughout the story. I tend to cho...

    I absolutely loved this book! It was very well written! I thoroughly enjoyed they 3 different point of views in this story. This book touches on some deep issues, but it is written in such a great way. It definitely changed my thinking about tragedy. I really loved the part of the stor...

    This is one of the most heartbreaking books I?ve ever read. If I hadn?t been at my daughter?s ballet class when I finished reading it, I would have been a blubbering mess throughout its final chapters. In fact, I probably wouldn?t have been able to read the words at all, so per...

    Overwhelmingly honest, this story dove right into my mother's heart and resonated so that I could barely put it down. The Hidden Side is split time, like the author's lovely debut, Freedom's Ring. The Revolutionary story side was engaging, but the present-day scenario was so incred...

    Heidi Chiavaroli has left an indelible mark on my heart with her second novel. I attribute this primarily to the emotional depth she employs in her writing. Full Review: http://bit.ly/hiddenside ...

    There are some stories that I can't begin to imagine the journey the author went through to write them. There's a certain responsibility when writing difficult stories because at the same time you're not assuming to know what it means to go through these situations, you want the reader...

    I won this book from Goodreads Kindle Giveaways. I love historical fiction and I was intrigued that this novel was set during the Civil War for part of the story and then the other half was set in modern day. This is also a Christian Fiction novel. I don't want to give away spoilers bu...

    This story was heavy?it is the kind of story that will stay with me for a long time and caused me to think a lot about the issues that were presented. I had a hard time getting into the story?it took me about 150 pages to really start to enjoy it but once I hit that point, I fle...

    "You are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory." (p 365) I'm not even sure how to review this one. So much to say but I really can't without posting a whole bunch of spoilers and I think it's best to experience The Hidden Side as the sto...

    Wow. This book. As I started flipping pages I realized how much this book was not what I was expecting, it was better! This is a dual timeline, which I love! The modern day story line was the one I really got into, though both are good. This story takes you right into the middle of the...

    Heidi Chiavaroli did an amazing job of writing dual storylines that paralleled one another in theme (hiding one's true self). Although the settings and events were vastly different, the characters in the present and past experienced the same emotions throughout the story. I tend to cho...

    This is my first read by this author. I have looked forward to reading one of her books for some time. I love Christian historical fiction from the Revolutionary War period. I love historical fiction period. This is not simply a work of historical fiction. It is written from two time p...

    ". . . if only I had faith enough to reveal the raw, unflattering skin of my true self and entrust it all to Him." (365) I did not know what to expect when I picked up The Hidden Side by Heidi Chiavaroli. I've heard great things for her first novel, Freedom's Ring. So I was looking ...

    I absolutely loved this book! It was very well written! I thoroughly enjoyed they 3 different point of views in this story. This book touches on some deep issues, but it is written in such a great way. It definitely changed my thinking about tragedy. I really loved the part of the stor...

    This is one of the most heartbreaking books I?ve ever read. If I hadn?t been at my daughter?s ballet class when I finished reading it, I would have been a blubbering mess throughout its final chapters. In fact, I probably wouldn?t have been able to read the words at all, so per...

    Overwhelmingly honest, this story dove right into my mother's heart and resonated so that I could barely put it down. The Hidden Side is split time, like the author's lovely debut, Freedom's Ring. The Revolutionary story side was engaging, but the present-day scenario was so incred...

    A powerful story that broke my heart for all the Chris?s of the world. Unforgettable. Highly recommend. (There are disturbing themes?rape, school shooting, bullying?but all handled with subtlety and grace.) ...

    This was a story that sucked me in and held me tight until the very last page. Unfortunately, we live in a world where it?s not abnormal to hear about bomb threats and school shootings. Sadly, people shouting ?gun control!? won?t fix anything because it all comes down to a hear...

    First of all, I liked the intelligent writing of Heidi. If you read this book, you're going to have to pay attention to the words, not just skim and speed read. Mrs. Chiavaroli does have a gift, a talent from God for writing interesting historical fiction. The book was very interesting...

    I have to admit that I dragged my feet not wanting to start this book. I knew from what the author had told me that it dealt with a shooting and that the subject matter was challenging. And I wasn?t in the mood for a depressing read, I never am come to think of it. But I am so ...

    Oh gosh. This book dug into deep, dark places. It got serious REAL fast, and it never really came up for air. And, honestly, I couldn't put it down. Heidi Chiavaroli, author of "The Hidden Side", took on a myriad of tough topics in this fast paced, addictive piece of historical fict...

    The Hidden Side is the first book I have read by author Heidi Chiavaroli, and I am giving this a five star review not because I loved it. I did not, in fact this story was a very hard read for me but the author pulled me into her story even when I didn?t want to go. The topics discus...

    Heidi Chiavaroli caught my attention last year with her debut novel, Freedom?s Ring, and I can easily say that she surpassed herself with The Hidden Side. I admit that it took me several days to read the first fifty pages, not because it was a slow read or not keeping my attention, b...

    The Hidden Side is a powerful, grab you by the heart, kind of story. In actuality, it is two stories as it is a time-split novel, and both storylines are equally compelling. This was not an emotionally easy novel for me to read. But if you are looking for a book that will stretch yo...

    There have been a few books I?ve read in the last year that I just want to give either the author or the publisher a bravery medal for?this book is one of those. Tackling a sensitive subject that has hit too many close to home, school shooting are becoming all too frequent and are ...

    "You are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory." (p 365) I'm not even sure how to review this one. So much to say but I really can't without posting a whole bunch of spoilers and I think it's best to experience The Hidden Side as the sto...

    Wow. This book. As I started flipping pages I realized how much this book was not what I was expecting, it was better! This is a dual timeline, which I love! The modern day story line was the one I really got into, though both are good. This story takes you right into the middle of the...

    Heidi Chiavaroli did an amazing job of writing dual storylines that paralleled one another in theme (hiding one's true self). Although the settings and events were vastly different, the characters in the present and past experienced the same emotions throughout the story. I tend to cho...

    This is my first read by this author. I have looked forward to reading one of her books for some time. I love Christian historical fiction from the Revolutionary War period. I love historical fiction period. This is not simply a work of historical fiction. It is written from two time p...

    ". . . if only I had faith enough to reveal the raw, unflattering skin of my true self and entrust it all to Him." (365) I did not know what to expect when I picked up The Hidden Side by Heidi Chiavaroli. I've heard great things for her first novel, Freedom's Ring. So I was looking ...

    I absolutely loved this book! It was very well written! I thoroughly enjoyed they 3 different point of views in this story. This book touches on some deep issues, but it is written in such a great way. It definitely changed my thinking about tragedy. I really loved the part of the stor...

    This is one of the most heartbreaking books I?ve ever read. If I hadn?t been at my daughter?s ballet class when I finished reading it, I would have been a blubbering mess throughout its final chapters. In fact, I probably wouldn?t have been able to read the words at all, so per...

    Overwhelmingly honest, this story dove right into my mother's heart and resonated so that I could barely put it down. The Hidden Side is split time, like the author's lovely debut, Freedom's Ring. The Revolutionary story side was engaging, but the present-day scenario was so incred...

    A powerful story that broke my heart for all the Chris?s of the world. Unforgettable. Highly recommend. (There are disturbing themes?rape, school shooting, bullying?but all handled with subtlety and grace.) ...

    This was a story that sucked me in and held me tight until the very last page. Unfortunately, we live in a world where it?s not abnormal to hear about bomb threats and school shootings. Sadly, people shouting ?gun control!? won?t fix anything because it all comes down to a hear...

    First of all, I liked the intelligent writing of Heidi. If you read this book, you're going to have to pay attention to the words, not just skim and speed read. Mrs. Chiavaroli does have a gift, a talent from God for writing interesting historical fiction. The book was very interesting...

    The Hidden Side is a powerful, grab you by the heart, kind of story. In actuality, it is two stories as it is a time-split novel, and both storylines are equally compelling. This was not an emotionally easy novel for me to read. But if you are looking for a book that will stretch yo...
