Book Summary

Sully, a young Marine vet, returns home to Oregon straight from combat in Afghanistan. While recovering emotionally and physically, he attempts to make peace with his abusive father and pull the family horse ranch out of economic straits. Layered into Sully’s story are horse theft, murder, and the seeming futility of pursuing the love of an older woman. In beautiful lilting prose, the rugged characters and landscape of Oregon are brought to life with detail and emotion. We understand their fragility, struggles, dreams, suffering, and joys.


Amazon Five Star Reviews:

Linda Berry brings the rugged characters and landscapes of Central Oregon to life with detail and emotion. She has an uncanny knack for revealing the soft underbelly of the hardest individuals.

— Paul Bacon, Author of Bad Cop: New York’s Least Likely Police Officer Tells All

If the measure of a great novel is that you want to keep turning the pages, then Hidden is a smashing success! Berry has created a cast of richly detailed characters—some we empathize with from the first moments we meet them, others we loath with a feral intensity. But what makes Hidden especially enjoyable is the beautiful Oregon scenery combined with a tense and compelling plot. Sully, a Marine veteran, returns home hoping to recover from the violence he has witnessed and been a party to. But a ring of horse thieves has a different plan, and soon Sully is forced to fight for his life and that of his father. Five stars and highly recommended!

— Dave Edlund, author of the award-winning Peter Savage action/political thrillers

To this day, she loves to escape into the pages of a good book (of every genre), and reads two to three a week. As an author, she cannot conceive of writing a story that doesn’t revolve around at least one good murder, with a plot that is a labyrinth of mystery and surprise.
