- Heart of a Family by Suzie on 9/7/2015
At the beginning of August, my parents and I met in Colorado for a vacation. Despite living in southern Wyoming for seven years in the 80s and 90s, we’d never visited Estes Park, Colorado. One of my friends informed me that there was a hotel in Estes Park that inspired a rather famous book and movie. Written by Stephen King, The Shining is probably one of his most well-known horror stories. I had to smile when there was a brief mention of the hotel in Hiding Places by Erin Healy.
This book is about families of all shapes and sizes. From Kate’s family at the lodge—who tend to ignore her existence or attempt to make her life miserable—to the brotherhood evolved from committing crime in a gang, Healy explores the dynamics of what makes a family work, what makes them fight for each other.
Through a child’s eyes, readers sense the neglect. Through a young man’s perceptions, we feel the longing of a place to belong. And through the acts of a group of gang members, loyalty is not questioned, no matter the consequences.
