“Batya Casper has a magical voice. She writes eloquently about war, death, sorrow, joy, hope, and love. Her knowledge of the subject is evident. The reader is transported to 1930 Israel, 1940 England, and introduced to children and the world through their eyes. Hidden is made up of two books. The first one takes place in Israel and tells the story of a family who wraps their past in mystery and keeps it hidden from the young granddaughter who lives with them. In backstory the reader is led through the beauty of Israel, the lure of the ocean, the thrill and innocence of young love, the despair of loss, the cost of war. It is a love story that bridges generations.” — Regge Episale

Batya Casper's novella Hidden proves that great things do indeed come in small packages. The story kicks right off with a haunting mystery and traverses backward in time to explore several generations of a Jewish family plagued by tragedy and war. Casper's prose is tight and well-knit, allowing the story to unfold organically without exposition or wasted breath. Hidden is a fantastic read.
