{More about Hidden in the Heart}

Everything Claire wants seems to be beyond her reach…

After losing her mother to cancer and suffering a miscarriage soon after, Claire Ferguson numbs the pain with alcohol and pills, and wonders if her own life is worth living.

Adopted at birth, Claire is convinced she has some unknown genetic flaw that may have been the cause of her miscarriage. She must find a way to deal with the guilt she harbors. But exoneration will come with a price. With her marriage in trouble and her father refusing to answer any questions about her adoption, Claire begins the search for her birth mother. For the first time in her life, she really wants to know where she came from. But what if the woman who gave her life doesn’t want to be found?

Hidden in the Heart has been nominated for a 2013 Grace Award and is on the long list for an INSPY award.

Hidden in the Heart is a beautifully told story of a young woman’s search for her birth mother. Loosely based on her own journey of discovery, Catherine West infuses a transparency and depth of emotion that is both heartrending and immensely satisfying. I couldn’t put it down. Novel Rocket and I give it a very high recommendation.Ane Mulligan, Sr. editor, Novel Rocket http://www.novelrocket.com

Catherine West’s adept prose unfurls moments with the power to change lives, giving us both the dismay of heartbreak and a call to redemption in the story of two women who did not know how much they needed each other. — Olivia Newport, author of The Pursuit of Lucy Banning

From the first page, Catherine West pulled me into the broken life of her main character Claire Ferguson. A love story on many levels, Hidden in the Heart spoke to my heart about the value of forgiveness and the ultimate beauty of love. — Sue Harrison – International Bestselling Author of Mother Earth, Father Sky

Books about a child’s desire to find her birth parents have always repelled me. The stories tend to reinforce an adopted child’s fantasy that all will be well once the biological parents are found. Being an adoptive parent, I typically find these stories not only unlikely but also threatening to my role as mom. I appreciate Catherine West’s understanding of the fears and emotions that revolve around adoption. I was so moved by her words that I didn’t put the book down until I read the final page. Catherine’s story weaves around the adopted child’s need to know, the adoptive parents’ fears, and the complicated situation of the birth parents in a realistic and tender fashion. Hidden in the Heart goes beyond the quick fix of discovery and delves into struggles with faith, commitment, complicated circumstances, and difficult decisions. If your family has been touched by adoption, you will want to read this well-told story. — Lori Wildenberg is co-author of EMPOWERED PARENTS

Hidden in the Heart is a compelling love song of a novel about finding a true home in a lonely world. Gifted author Catherine West writes with lump-in-the-throat power to transport you through a family’s journey from brokenness to grace. A page-turner full of honest spiritual insight and poignant characters, this is a luminous story of forgiveness that will take hold of your heart and lift its hidden burdens. — Rosslyn Elliott, award-winning author of Fairer than Morning and Sweeter than Birdsong

Through her novels, Catherine West reaches out to her readers, asking them to examine the deeper issues of the heart: how our failures shape our futures, what real faith looks like, and how much heartache can a marriage survive. In Hidden in the Heart, West explores the many facets of adoption, writing with gut-wrenching honesty and yet a tenderness that kept me turning pages late into the night.Beth K. Vogt, author of Wish You Were Here (Howard Books, May 2012) & Catch a Falling Star (May 2013)

Catherine West intricately weaves a story about one family’s journey toward truth, healing, and wholeness. Hidden in the Heart is a touching tale that will leave readers with a sense that even in the midst of great hurt, God can redeem what’s been lost. — Katie Ganshert, author of Wildflowers from Winter
