Book Review

Publisher's Note:

She's always determined to be the stable, reliable one. But now her commitment may destroy her. On the surface, Whitney Powell is happy working with her sled dogs and welcoming the new additions to her family through her sisters' marriages and an upcoming birth. But her life is full of complications, including an estranged father, that have her on the edge of losing control. Growing up, she was the strong sister, and she can't give that up now. When villagers in outlying areas come down with a horrible sickness, Dr. Peter Cameron turns to Whitney and her dogs for help navigating the deep snow, and they become close while ministering to the sick together. Peter has long recognized her finer qualities but is troubled by the emotions and secrets she keeps buried within. He wants to help but wonders if she is more of a risk than his heart can take. As sickness spreads throughout Nome and another man courts Whitney, she and Peter will discover that sometimes it is only in weakness …

Ever Constant

by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse

Overall Book Review:

Ever Constant coauthored by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse is the final book in The Treasures of Nome trilogy.  Although the book could be read as a standalone story, it is not recommended.  Each book provides some backstory that makes a great deal more sense when read in sequence.

Readers will not be disappointed in this story.   It contains the classic character struggles and real location details that allow one to follow the story, but not to be bogged down by too many descriptions.  The authors demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the setting by adding subtle and natural details to the characters’ experiences.

The book contains an in-depth evaluation of what it means to put God first in one’s life and to rely on him.  The religious aspects are woven into the fabric of the characters’ lives rather than thrust into the readers face as happens often with Christian literature.  You will find yourself rooting for successes and protesting unwise decisions as the protagonist navigates the challenges in her life.
