I am struck, Nowhere Left to Hide, showcases how truly valuable our friendships are and how much our female friends, in particular, mean to us as women.
Natasha, the main character, is a young university student who has endured horrific abuses in her life, yet somehow has been able to hold that pain close, see it clearly for what it is, and use it to be more conscientious and sympathetic towards others.
Even those people who were labeled as wicked or difficult, Natasha was able to see past their facade and see their pain was much like hers. Typically these types of people push others away, but Natasha helped them to see their sameness.
Being witness to Natasha's sensitivity, turned people around. Suddenly they were understood. Suddenly they were accepted. Suddenly, they could let that big huge wall down and show their true selves. And isn't that what we all want? To be understood? To be accepted? And to feel safe enough to let the guard down?
Natasha Parker is a smart and beautiful young woman who has endured a childhood of distrust , pain , and abuse. She has closed herself off while finding ways to hide from those who caused her scars.
While attending college in England , she is offered to go to Santa Barbara for her last year , while a bit scared , shes excited for the chance. Once there she has no problem finding friends , she hits it off with Mike , Kirsten and Tyler. Her and Kirsten become best friends and Natasha starts spending more time with Tyler, who is trying to figure her out. While trying to build a new life for herself she is still haunted with her past, and finds it hard to open up and trust others. While Tyler is trying to take it slow and not be pushy , Natasha finally opens up to him and tells him her dark secrets, it's a difficult road for her to go down , but it gives her a sense of relief , and helps to make life easier.
Natasha finds love with Tyler , she is finally happy , but after graduation her visa expires and she will have to return to England . With both of them going through emotional hell , Tyler is determined to be with his woman , and does something that no one was expecting.
I enjoyed this book , it is emotional , yet funny and easy going. Natasha had a horrible childhood , but she stayed strong and upbeat. Its fresh and clean and I will be passing it on to my teen daughter and mother.
Natasha gets a scholarship to study at the University of California, Santa Barbara campus.
She travels to the area and moves in with a woman there who's taken on students before.
Natasha is given a treat by seeing how the US celebrates Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas all the while learning for her last year of college, the American view point.
There is something in her past that terrifies her and she is so afraid one of the guys who likes her is going to push her to do something she is terrified to do. She talks to her new girl friend about it and she tells Natasha that she should just talk to her boy friend, Tyler about it to bring the problem up front so they can talk about it.
Love the sightseeing to Getty Museum as we didn't get to go there on our trip to the west coast.
They all get to venture out to the mountains and spend a few days in the snow til health becomes an issue. She trusts him a lot now as they venture to other new places, LA.
Her poems and career take off, now she has a LOT of choices to select from as to what to do with her life. Love the ending!
