FOREVER HIDDEN by Kimberley Woodhouse & Tracie Peterson
SERIES: The Treasures of Nome #1
GENRE: Inspirational Historical Romance
PUBLISHER: Bethany House
RELEASE DATE: January 7, 2020
For Havyn Powell, growing up on her grandfather Chuck Bondrant’s dairy outside the 1904 gold-rush boomtown of Nome, Alaska, offered all she needed. She had the love of her mother, two sisters, and grandfather. But now, at 23, Havyn realizes the stability of her life may soon vanish. Havyn is determined to find a way to keep the family together, but her grandfather’s health is declining and everyone seems to be holding secrets from each other, including the handsome, dark-haired stranger who recently arrived.
John Roselli arrives in Nome looking for a steady, consistent job. He has grown tired of the promises of getting rich quick and just wants an honest job with honest pay. His grandfather once knew a Chuck Bondrant, and so when John arrives at the dairy, he’s quickly offered a job–and a path to more if he wants it.
Havyn’s plan for helping out the family means using her beautiful singing voice and her sisters’ musical talent at a local roadhouse. They’re an immediate hit, and it looks like her plan will be a success. But the spotlight brings with it dangerous eyes that covet Havyn and are jealous as she and John grow ever closer. But will they realize the peril before it’s too late?
Hi dear Kimberley! Welcome back to the blog!
Carrie: Girl, you are speaking my language!
Carrie: That’s ok, we can still be friends 😉
Carrie: Now we’re back in sync 🙂
Q: Around here I like to say that reading is my superpower. If YOU had a superpower, what would it be?
Kimberley: Cooking. And then maybe eating. 😉 Although I should probably say something writerly like… I write fast. But that’s not as fun.
Carrie: Cooking & eating is definitely more fun! 😀
Q: Who is your favorite book character from childhood?
Carrie: Yesssssss! “‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.” – one of my favorite quotes in all of literature!
Q: If I sneaked a peek in your purse right now (which I would never do, I promise!), what would it tell me about you?
Kimberley: That I’m prepared for anything. At least, that’s what my husband says.
Carrie: I’m sticking with you at the next conference we’re both at! 🙂
Q: Which of your main characters is most like you?
Kimberley: Havyn – because she has conversations with her chickens. People used to tease me for talking to my girls like they were people. I came up with all kinds of character ideas when I was out feeding my chickens–they’re very inspiring. And quirky.
Carrie: Have I mentioned my chicken phobia? … LOL
Q: Some authors like to hide little things in their stories. Is there anything you have hidden in your book?
Kimberley: Maybe. Did you find it? Did you?
Carrie: hahaha! Well, now I’m intrigued!
Q: What is something God taught you while you wrote Forever Hidden?
Kimberley: Not to take breathing (or anything for that matter) for granted. Two years ago, I contracted Pertussis (whooping cough) and it was a terrible case. We found out during the writing of this book that it damaged my soft palate and then I was also diagnosed with severe asthma. At the beginning, I struggled so much with my breathing that there were times I thought I wouldn’t be able to take another breath. So not only is there a lot of my own struggle in the book, but hopefully the fact that I learned to be grateful for every breath, every second, every minute, and every day.
Carrie: that had to have been so scary!
Thank you so much for taking time to talk with me! 🙂 Before we say goodbye for today, tell us what‘s coming up next for you.
Kimberley: I’ve got several exciting projects that I’m working on for 2021 and 2022 (be watching for the fun news!), and obviously book two in this series will release January of 2021. I also have another novella collection releasing in March.
