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.

This is such a pretty cover! And I’m SO on board with the cooking superpower! That would be amazing!
Thank you! The design team at Bethany House is AMAZING. I love, love, love to cook. If only it burned off all the calories!
Love her books. I have read all but this one.
oh wow! Thank you so much!!! That made my day 🙂
I love how genuine Kimberly Woodhouse is!! I am excited to “get back to Alaska” and read the story about Nome. My sister in law is from Kodak, Alaska so I enjoy learning more about her home state.
Bev, you are such an encourager! Thank you for that! I sure hope you enjoy our new series. You know how much I love Alaska. 🙂
Great interview, always something interesting going on with Kim. This book looks great.
Always something interesting… well, yeah. I can’t argue with that! My life is a hoot. 🙂
Family secrets and danger
There’s plenty of that in this story 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by!
I enjoy reading stories set in Alaska. It is one of the few states left on my bucket list to visit. Looking forward to reading this one! Here’s hoping.
mine too, Anne!
Everyone really needs to go. Alaska is INCREDIBLE. We really miss living there. Thank you for reading!
I am intrigued by this book and would love to read it. I have read books by Kimberley, but they have been written with another author or two, like Tracie Peterson. It would be nice to read one by her alone to see exactly what her writing style is. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity and good luck everyone.
“FOREVER HIDDEN” by Kimberley Woodhouse & Tracie Peterson has it all – sweet romance while feeling what it was like years ago and learning a lesson or two along the way. Can’t wait for the opportunity to read this book which is on my TBR list.
Love stories with an Alaskan setting. I was conceived in Alaska, but Mom was RH- and they were sent back stateside. So I always think of Alaska as my second birth place – sort of. 🙂
I have this near the top of my TBR pile. I’m excited to read it. I’ve been to Alaska a couple of times, but they were both in the winter. A couple of my grandkids used to live in Anchorage. I need to go back in the summer! LOL For now, I’ll just have to be content to read about it. I’m finishing up Susan May Warren’s The Way of the Brave set in Denali–climbing on the mountain in blizzards, avalanches, etc. I should have waited until summer to read it, because I have to use my heated throw to read! BRRRR!!
Thanks for the interview, Carrie and Kimberley! I’m looking forward to this book!
Love to read books about Alaska. This one sounds really good!
Hey Carrie and Kimberley! Thank you for the fun interview! Aslan is my favorite too.
I’m looking forward to reading “Hidden Forever”.
I love books set in Alaska! It’s sort of like the final frontier of America.
The whole talking to her chickens thing makes me want to read this book now 🙂 .
A captivating novel which interests me greatly. The story and setting sound memorable and special.
It sounds intriguing and like a very good page turner! Secrets, wonder what they are???? I love the cover, it is beautiful! I enjoyed reading about the book and I really enjoyed the author interview! Thank you so much for this post. Have a Great week. God Bless you.
Sounds really good.
I love books that involve music…and this one is no exception, however dangerous. Sound like a great read! And, I love winter, too. I’ll take layers over sweating all day any day! ?
Enjoyed the post!
I’ve read several of Traci’s books; some that she has co-authored with others. Would love to read this one. i really like historical fiction.
Lovely cover. Sounds good.
I am reminded once again just how we can never take for granted our life, our moments, the simple act of breathing in, breathing out. Thank you for this wonderful post.
I love reading inspirational books where family helps family even though they have secrets or other obstacles to overcome. She is a new author to me. I would love to read.
yay! thanks, Bernice
