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 Gra 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.

Drawn to the beautiful redhead with big dreams, will deceptions from the past tear apart any hope for the future?

More from Kim

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!

My Thoughts

Endless Mercy by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse has Madysen Powell feeling angry towards her father.  All these years the three girls thought he was dead.  Now he shows up looking to reconnect with them and he is asking for forgiveness.  Madysen loves her sheep and is looking forward to the expansion of the cheese business.  However, Madysen dreams of singing in concert halls around the world.  When a man shows up in town who can offer her this opportunity will Madysen leave Nome or will she pick the man a little closer to home?  I thought Endless Mercy was a well-written novel with developed characters.  While the story focuses on Madysen, we get to catch up with the other two sisters.  Havyn is happily married while Whitney is busy training her sled dogs.  The grandfather is recovering, and the girls’ father has arrived in town.  Judas Reynolds has not given up on finding leverage on the Powell family.  I thought the authors’ captured the time period and the location of Nome, Alaska.  I enjoyed the descriptions of the town, the sisters’ performances, the farm, and the process of making cheese.  I liked seeing Madysen grow as an individual.  Madysen must decide whether to pursue her singing ambitions or the path the Lord has set for her.  Mercy, grace, and forgiveness are the main themes in Endless Mercy.  I like how faith and God are incorporated into the story. I thought Endless Mercy was a well-balanced novel.  Endless Mercy is the 2nd book in The Treasures of Nome series.  Endless Mercy can be read as a standalone, however, I recommend reading both books (in order) in this engaging historical series.  I am looking forward to reading the Whitney’s story in the final installment in The Treasures of Nome series

  1. Wonderful review, Kris! I'm looking forward to reading this series. Thank you for hosting.

  2. Thanks for your thorough review! Usually if I read a series, I prefer the books to follow the same main character instead of side characters. I might give this a try, though.
