No Safe Haven...A Must Read

Title:  No Safe Haven
Author:  Kimberley & Kayla Woodhouse
Pages:  352
Year:  2011
Publisher:  B & H Books
Written by a mother and daughter team, No Safe Haven, is a journey into the dangerous and beautiful wilderness of Alaska.  Jenna is the mother of a young girl named Andie who has a rare medical disorder that can put her very life in danger in the blink of an eye.  What may startle some readers is that Kayla, one of the co-authors, does have the disorder the character Andie has in the tale where they cannot feel pain or regulate their body temperatures.
The action starts from the first words on the page and only increases until the very end of the book!  Jenna’s husband Marcus is killed.  He had been in the Army, but lately his actions were leaving Jenna with an unquiet spirit.  Andie just had a major operation when her father was killed.  Now, a year later, Jenna and Andie are flying into Alaska ready to start the lives anew.  However, the plane has been badly sabotaged which leads to one scary ending by crashing into the side of a mountain.  When Andie wakes up first, she begins to check her mom and minimize the effects of the severe cold temperatures and the coming snow storm.
Those who are after Marcus’ computer program mean business and aren’t afraid to remove anyone who attempts to keep them from locating their prize.  Not only is the writing exceptional, but so is the input of the disorder from which Kayla Woodhouse suffers.  Knowing some of what real people with this rare disorder go through along with their loved ones was an eye opening experience.  I loved how Andie’s faith was bold, open, and unafraid, and her dependence on God amazing.  The mother-daughter bond depicted throughout the novel is heart-touching.  I loved how the authors show that the love of God shown before others can melt even the hardest of hearts.  The one character named Cole really was resistant to hearing about God for a long time in the novel.  When you read the book, see what cracks the hard veneer of this Army man.  Another book the mother and daughter have collaborated on is Race Against Time and I plan on reading this soon!
Here is another wonderful novel to wrap and give to your avid reader this coming holiday season!
My rating is 5 stars.
