The Inn At Hidden Run by Olivia Newport

This book was a bit different than other books I have read from this author.  First it was contemporary and it was historical.  Two time frames.  The contemporary part was about a genealogist named Jillian which was close to home for me.  That's been my occupation for 40 years.  The book mentioned that there was no college degree for this occupation or something to that effect, but that isn't really true.  I know this because I wrote a major part of the German track Genealogy curriculum for a university in another state and that was completed several years ago after the US track had been finished.  Then after this there are extensive certifications to pass to be either accredited or certified as a professional genealogist.

But that said, I can say that being a genealogist is much like being a detective.  It's exciting and full of mystery!

The historical part of the book was interlaced with the contemporary parts by their individual chapters.  It was about the Memphis Yellow Fever epidemic and that also intertwines with the life of Jillian's family tree project with Meri.

It was a good read but a little hard to get started on for me.  I did like it and I will probably be reading the rest of the series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was and no obligation to post a review.
