These Things Hidden by Heather Gudenkauf

This book was interesting. The cover basically just said the book was abbout secrets and forgiveness surrounding a little boy and a story of a girl, Allison, who just got out of prison.
The story shifts perspectives between four different women and we learn the boy's story and Allison's story piece-by-piece. But things aren't as they seem early on. There's a slight twist/new revelations in the last quarter of the book I wasn't expecting, that was emotionally triggering and upsetting for me.

Overall this book was pretty good, with a few typos and things the editors missed, and had it not affected me for personal reasons i'd give it 5/5 stars.
