Endless Mercy written by award winning, best selling authors Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse is Book Two in their Treasures of Nome Series. It is set in 1904 Nome, Alaska. If you haven’t read Book One, Forever Hidden, you will not have a problem following the story. This is a beautiful albeit gritty at times Christian historical romance.
This series is about the three Powell sisters. In book one we meet Havyn. In this book it is the story of Madysen. I love that they live on a farm and have animals. Havyn has chickens and Madysen has sheep. Their mother has died and a kindly neighbor lady from town, Granny Beaufort, fills in and listens with a loving heart. She is a charming character.
This is Madysen’s story. She is a talented, beautiful, feisty young red haired woman that dreams of entertaining on stage. She has issues she is working with on forgiveness and grief. Her dead father suddenly appears making her confused, angry, and cold. Thankfully she has her beloved sheep to calm her.
This is also the story of Daniel. He is angry at God because of the death of both of his parents. He wants to start a dairy. With his help, the girls farm has started making cheese. They needed this to sustain them. His relationship with Maddy is up against competition with the entertainment manager, Buddy.
The girls continue their regular worship of God and invite Daniel to join. They never force him. While he declines it seems he is listening and having a change of heart. Maddy is, too. It is refreshing to read a Christian fiction book that has so much spiritual content woven into it.
These two award winning authors make a fabulous writing team. The style is lovely. The story is smooth and flows with an even pace. All of the characters are well described and believable. The lessons presented in this novel are timeless. Twists and turns make it fun. This book, and series, is truly wonderful. It has historical fiction, romance, suspense, mystery, faith, and life lessons. I enjoyed the Christian message of forgiveness and mercy.
I highly recommend this captivating book. It gets a 5 out of 5 stars from me. A copy was provided by Celebrate Lit but these are my honest words.

Madysen Powell has always been a forgiving person, but when her supposedly dead father shows up in Nome, Alaska, her gift for forgiveness is tested. With the recent loss of her mother, she searches for answers, leaning on Granny Beaufort, a neighbor in town, who listens with a kind heart. Still, Madysen is restless and dreams of performing her music around the world. The arrival of a traveling show could prove just the chance she needs, and the manager promises more than she ever dreamed.
Daniel Beaufort arrives in Nome, searching for his own answers after the gold rush leaves him with only empty pockets. Still angry about the death of his loved ones, he longs to start fresh but doesn’t have high hopes until he ends up helping at the Powell dairy making cheese.

It’s so exciting for book two in our Treasures of Nome series, Endless Mercy, to be heading out into the world! Tracie and I are so thrilled to bring you another story set in Nome, Alaska. And isn’t that cover gorgeous? Bethany House does such an amazing job with our books, it is an absolute joy to get to work with them.
In book one, Forever Hidden, we are introduced to three sisters and their family (and farm) in Nome. Forever Hidden is Havyn’s story. And did I mention there are chickens? Check out my blog for some interesting pictures and stories about how these chicken stories came to be…
Book two, Endless Mercy, is Madysen’s story. Madysen is the youngest sibling, and in our story, she’s a talented cello player. Oh, and there are some sheep, who just might help get her into mischief. (Are you seeing a pattern here?)
Book three will release January 2022 and will finish out the Powell girls’ stories with the eldest, Whitney.
This series is very near and dear to us because the Powell sisters in the books are actually named after three beautiful girls we adore. They were music students of mine in Colorado and when Tracie and I had a book signing for In the Shadow of Denali, the red-headed, musical sisters all came. Tracie made the comment that someone should write a book about them…so of course…we did!
I wish you could hear the girls play and sing in real life. They are such talented musicians, and I love them dearly. Huge thanks go to Monica and Merle Powell for allowing us to take their three girls and make fictional characters out of them.
Here’s a picture of Monica with me and Tracie at a book signing years ago. And then of course, I had to put in a picture of the real Powell girls.
We’d love for you to join us for The Treasures of Nome. Enjoy the blog tour!
