Dulcie Ballantyne knows that creative writers' groups attract an unlikely mix of people, so when she starts up Hidden Talents, she is well prepared for the assortment of people she is bringing together. Beth King is facing empty-nest syndrome as her only son, Nathan, leaves home for university; Jack Solomon, a local estate agent, is having trouble coming to terms with the shock of his wife leaving him for his best friend; Jaz Rafferty is an intensely private 17-year-old girl who writes to escape her large, boisterous family; Victor Blackmore is a know-it-all, who claims to be writing the blockbuster novel every publisher will be clamouring for. What they all have in common is a need to escape, as well as a desire to keep their lives as private as possible. As they grow more confident in their writing skills, friendships develop, and gradually they come to realize that a little openness isn't necessarily a bad thing.

This book was more complex than A Breath of Fresh Air. I liked it more!
Good story, you want to keep on reading.

This was a great beach read. It explores the humanity that's hidden within each one of us, no matter how different we are.
