All Things Hidden

GIVEAWAY

PETERSON, TRACIE
WOODHOUSE, KIMBERLY
ALL THINGS HIDDEN

Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse Team Up to Deliver a Stunning Depression-Era Drama

Gwyn Hillerman loves being a nurse at her father's clinic on the beautiful Alaskan frontier. But family life has been rough ever since her mother left them, disdaining the uncivilized country and taking Gwyn's younger sister with her.

In Chicago, Dr. Jeremiah Vaughan finds his life suddenly turned upside down when his medical license is stripped away after an affluent patient dies. In a snowball effect, his fiance breaks their engagement. In an attempt to bury the past, Jeremiah accepts Dr. Hillerman's invitation to join his growing practice in the isolated Alaska Territory.

Gwyn and Jeremiah soon recognize a growing attraction to each other. But when rumors of Jeremiah's past begin to surface, they'll need more than love to face the threat of an uncertain future.

My Review:

An intriguing 'exotic' setting sets the stage for this historical drama. The authors have expertly blended fact and fiction in order to deliver a riveting plot centred around the 1935 colonization of Alaska. This was a piece of American history I didn't know about and found it incredibly fascinating.

Gwyn and Jeremiah's gentle love story is fraught with complications in a twisty turny plot packed with lots of surprises...including an unexpected suspense thread. Story arcs build and grow until they practically explode off the page at the climax. A wonderful meshing of two talented authors who clearly compliment each other.

    1. Kimberly Woodhouse Has a suspense series she wrote with her daughter -- also set in Alaska. Peterson and Woodhouse make a great pairing. I'd love to know how they collaborated...that sounds like such a hard thing to do. Good luck Patty!

  10. Hello again Pam. hope your weather isn't getting you down. We are under a freeze warning today for Icy rain, where it freezes as soon as it hits the pavement. making black ice. Very dangerous. This part of Texas isn't use to this kind of weather, nor cold days lasting this long. I don't mind so much cause I just stay in, but worry for those who have to get out. Most schools in the Houston ares will be closed today, and County offices and maybe City offices. Wish my daughter could stay home. I would love to win this book. Sounds good. And, two good authors.
