No Safe Haven


Jenna tried hard to find a way to forgive her husband Marc, but after hearing about Amy for so long, it was hard to put it behind her. Could her husband have cheated on her?

She was trying hard to remember God's provision to forgive and to trust in Him as she struggled for survival along with her 12-year-old daughter Andie. Lost in the frozen Denali National Park after their plane crashed, she isn't sure whom she can trust anymore. When an unexpected passenger comes along for a last minute ride, she begins to realize that if they want to live, she's going to have to trust Cole's instincts to climb higher rather than down. Andie has a nervous disorder that doesn't allow her to feel pain, much less the ability to regulate her body's temperatures, so it's imperative that they must be rescued soon or she could die.

It seems like the plane crash wasn't just an accident, and her trusted pilot Hank wanted to make sure that they all died in it. When Cole informs her that the people that wanted her dead would be coming back to the crash site to ensure that everyone had died, she begins to wonder if there is any safe haven anymore.

I received No Safe Haven by Kimberley and Kayla Woodhouse, compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review. This mother/daughter team of writers takes you to another place with a different threat level in dealing with a real disorder that Kayla has and was featured on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. In using her daughter as the basis for the character of Andie, I believe it made the storyline that much more urgent and action packed from the very first page. This story is based on the faith and forgiveness that can only be found in a personal relationship with God to help them weather the storm of their survival and rates a 5 out of 5 stars.

This book is available in paperback and eBook formats. Here's even more information about the book, the authors and even a first chapter peek, but be warned, it will leave you wanting much, much more.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:



A devoted wife and mother, Kimberley Woodhouse is a third generation Liszt student, she has passed down her love of the arts to hundreds of students over the years.



About fifteen years ago, Kimberley began writing seriously. Songs, plays, short stories, novels, picture books, articles, newsletters - you name it - she's written it. It wasn't until a dear friend challenged her to "do something with it", that she pursued publication.



Kimberley and her family's story have been on the front page of newspapers, in magazines, articles, medical journals, and most recently her family was chosen for ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. They were also asked to share their story on The Montel Williams Show and Discovery Health Channel's Mystery ER. She has recorded three albums, and has appeared at over 700 venues. Kimberley lives, writes, and homeschools in Colorado with her husband and their two children in a truly "Extreme" home.



Thirteen-year-old Kayla Woodhouse’s zest for writing comes not only from her natural ability, but also from her love of the written word as witnessed by her voracious reading appetite. One of only a few dozen cases in the world, Kayla was born with HSAN, Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy, an extremely rare nerve disorder. Unable to sweat, or feel pain, she’s also been through brain surgery. But even through a life of extreme hardships, her ever-present smile encourages others to pursue their dreams, no matter the obstacles. In addition to being homeschooled and writing with her mom, she’s an amazing swimmer, and spends up to thirty hours a week in training. No Safe Haven, her first release from B&H Publishers in 2011, written with mother, Kimberley, makes her the youngest author to have a full-length novel published by a royalty paying publisher.





ABOUT THE BOOK



Jenna and Andi Tikaani-Gray are hoping for a fresh start. Though twelve year-old Andi has long struggled with a rare medical disorder, she and her mother have finally received good news from out-of-town specialists. It's news they desperately needed, especially after the recent death of Jenna's husband (Andi's dad) in a car accident.



But as they are flying home to Alaska, ready to begin again, the unthinkable happens. The pilot sabotages their small plane and crashes into Sultana, one of the most remote and dangerous mountains in the Land of the Midnight Sun. Even worse, a winter storm is headed their way along with someone who doesn't want to save them, but to kill them.



Only one man can keep them alive: Cole Maddox, the mysterious last-minute passenger who joined them on their flight. But trust doesn't come easy to Jenna or AndiÑand they both sense Cole is hiding something.



A relentless tale of survival and suspense unfolds, involving military technology designed by Jenna's late husband that some would do anything to possess.
