    "Great Story" I loved the story. It is a great book. I judge a story on it keeping my interest all the way through and making me care about the characters. This book does both. Thank you.

    "Hidden Treasure from a Southerner's POV" I guess I qualify as a Southerner since I was brought from England to live in Georgia at age one and grew up there on a farm about 12 miles from the state line with Alabama. The basic story was intriguing and imaginative, but I do have some quibbles. I don't like Americans pretending to be English or non-Americans pretending to be American. I am a dual national with an American father and an English mother. The accents are simply not all that good in all but a few instances. The dialect written for Trea is just about as far from any accent I ever heard in either Alabama, Georgia, or Mississippi. It seemed a bit like a mishmash of Louisiana Cajun, hip-hop slang, and Appalachian hillbilly. I chuckled at some of the attempts at Southern similes. There were several references to priests but also a reference to not being Catholic. One could probably find more Catholics and Anglicans in Norway than the state of Alabama. In the South... More > (generally the southeastern U.S.), 90% of the population is Protestant Christian with pretty hard-core fundamentalism dominating in the rural areas. Priests are viewed as non-Christians in these areas. With references to Mobile apparently as the nearest city, one is referring to the southern portion of Alabama. The concept of valleys is simply not relevant. It's quite flat and the nearest bayou is probably 150 miles west in the extreme south of Mississippi. I read a few years ago that despite years of searching, no oil in usable quantities had been found in the region, regardless of the Beverly Hillbillies. I don't mean to seem harsh because I largely ignored the blemishes and enjoyed the underlying love story. This is how I use to eat apples that had fallen from the trees in my uncle's orchard. Eat around the bruises and enjoy the delicious juicy flavour.< Less

    "great book!" I thought Hidden Treasure was a great book. The ideas and storyline where interesting and kept me glued to the pages. I could hardly wait to find out the reasons behind their guest's strange behavior. I especially loved the ending. :)

    "Well worth the read!" I recently purchased this book and finished it in a day flat, I loved it so much... It is both heart wrenching and intriguing, from the first page on and difficult to put down. Their guest was as far from even what I was expecting as can get and no less enthralling for it. Keep up the great work!
