Noela Nancarrow Reviews No Safe Haven by Kimberley and Kayla Woodhouse

No Safe Haven

NO SAFE HAVEN
by KIMBERLEY AND KAYLA WOODHOUSE
(B&H Books, 2011)

Reviewed by Noela Nancarrow

A Peril filled Page-turner!

This story starts off with a power-packed punch with Marcus Gray sitting in his car and suddenly seeing an unmanned car racing toward him in his rear view mirror. In his last moments, the images of his beloved wife and precious daughter fill his thoughts along with the knowledge that the remote-controlled car was undoubtedly filled with explosives...

Jumping ahead to one year later, the intense drama doesn’t let up at all! Marcus’ widowed wife Jenna Tikaani-Gray and twelve year old daughter Andrea (Andie) are on a small plane flying from out of their town Anchorage, Alaska, and headed for home along the Chena River. But disaster strikes when their pilot friend Hank, unexpectedly pulls a gun on the last-minute passenger travelling with them! Unbelievably, Hank also shoots the plane’s radio. This unfamiliar passenger on Jenna’s plane is able to knock the gun out of Hank’s hand as well as the knocking out Hank too, but their lives are in grave danger with the plane having no radio, working controls, or fuel left, and the very remote and treacherous Mt. Sultana rushing is towards them!

Cole Maddox, the mysterious man on the plane is the only one that Jenna and her daughter Andie can rely upon to help them stay alive in this freezing and hostile environment that they’ve crashed in to. But who is he and why was he even on the plane? Clearly a man with some secrets, can he even be trusted? When a fierce winter storm rages, along with alarming injuries to some of the survivors, elevation sickness, and Andie’s rare neurological disorder, everything seems against them. In addition to this, there are people that want to kill them no matter what it takes. Can they all manage to possibly survive?

No Safe Haven is a relentless tale of suspense, danger, and intrigue. From jaw-dropping moments to tissue-grabbing occasions, this story is an undeniable page-turner that will be near impossible to put down! Add to all that a sweet romance and you’ve got yourself a story you’ll cherish.

Woven throughout this story also is the eloquently explained message of salvation… movingly expressed and perfect for those who could benefit from this important message without being too preachy.

The characters are all well-developed, interesting and unique, and I fell in love with the bright, feisty and charming Andie straight away! She had a heart of compassion for others and a deep love for God. But this enchanting child unfortunately suffers from HSAN (Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy), an extremely rare nerve disorder where she cannot sweat or feel pain. What were hazardous situations already, became even more dangerous for this courageous young girl.

And what made this incredible story even more so amazing and real, was when I discovered that Andie was based on co-author Kayla Woodhouse who suffers from this disorder in reality. I remain deeply inspired by this beautiful mother and daughter duo and thank them both for this exciting and brilliant story while bringing awareness to this very rare condition!

Kim & Kayla's books can be purchased through CBD, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other bookstores.

  1. NOELA, what a wonderful and exciting review! Why have I not read any of KIMBERLEY'S books yet...what's wrong with me? LOL

    And yes, I have been fighting a condition in my body and sometimes it feels like friends and family have all gone. But Jesus has never left me for one second, and in His time He will say, "Enough!", and I will be healed. I believe that!

  6. good morning !!! What a great review ~ need to read now ... as for the condition that made me feel along ~ I went through a chemotherapy treatment on my face... the doctor thought it would be just around my nose on my cheek area....well, it was all over my face, my forehead, chin both cheeks, and I truly looked terrible.. it felt terrible, very painful, it would burn, and if I smiled or opened my mouth to eat, it would crack and bleed, as the treatment lasted 21 days... I would cry when it was time to put the treatment on.. I couldn't leave the house, I was scarey looking, esp to children.. My granddaughter was fine with it, my daughter made sure she saw me every day to be used to it.. for her preschool graduation I told her I couldn't go because of the booboos on my face and I didn't want to frighten anyone, and she said, very matter of factly, Nani, we will just tell them you have a booboo !!! I wasn't alone anymore !!!!!! I prayed for relief, and the meds worked ~ it got all of the cancerous cells and all worked out... all is well !!!! thanks for the great review..

    1. Good morning to you ROSEMARY... although here in Australia it's now just after 10pm! :)

      Thank you so much for sharing your story Rosemary! How hard that must have been for you going through all of that. I'm sooo glad you had God to bring you through it and answer your prayers. And how precious of your granddaughter to give you that encouragement... I just love their innocence and the pure way they have of looking at things at times. I'm thanking God right now for your healing, that's so wonderful. You are an overcomer Rosemary!! :)

  7. I have had several times in my life where something happened and I felt alone ... one I will tell you about was waiting alone in a procedure room a couple of years back; a doctor and nurse would "be right back", but were delayed. I spent a half hour laying alone in a cold room (unclothed except for one of those hygenic paper blankets that doctors buy in bulk), wondering if they were going to discover bladder cancer. I finally realized - "so what?" If they don't, I have no reason to worry. If they do - well, I'll fight it, and even if I lose that battle I'd had a pretty good run. (not that I didn't want to see and do more, of course!)
    Besides, I wasn't alone; I was pretty sure my guardian angel was hanging out with me.
    Turns out, no cancer! Just ("just") a large kidney stone lodged in my bladder wall. I should have spent that time being more worried about that procedure itself, in which the doctor took this device and ... ah, but that's a story for another day ...

    2. Ooh ANDREW...lol, yes leave that story for now! I can see how that time alone in the procedure room would have been difficult and lonely, but as you explained, sometimes we do require that time alone so that God can speak to us and give us that comfort and peace that we need!
      Thanks for stopping by!

      Delete
    3. ANDREW - your reply reminded me of a similar event - I'd had several miscarriages and was in pre-op for surgery when all of a sudden all of the staff gasped and left the room. I thought for sure they would return and tell me that I was going to die and soon, but wouldn't you know, I was pregnant - with the first of my miracle children.
      But I will never forget those minutes, because of what God did in me. It's a reminder I often need of His presence, His peace, and His power.

  8. This is a fantastic review, Noella!!! If I hadn't already read the book,. I would definitely want to after reading your review :)

    I think if you ask any parent of a mentally challenged child if they've ever felt alone, the answer would be a resounding yes. For me, it wasn't alone in a spiritual sense (I always felt the Lord's presence and knew He was my solid Rock!) but in the sense that no one in our circle of family or friends had a child like our Amy. When you have a diagnosis of Developmental Delay with Mental Retardation, there's just no set of rules for anything. It wasn't as if we could say she had "this particular disorder" and this is the "usual prognosis" for said disorder. As one of our favorite doctors said to us, "There's no playbook for Amy. We're in the dark." That was a tough place to be but praise the Lord she is dwelling in the LIGHT now!

    1. Oh thank you ANNE, you sweetheart! It was a great story wasn't it?! :)

      Having brought up a child with Asperger's Syndrome, I have also felt that sense of being alone and not having family that really understood. I was so grateful to God for having already brought a friend into my life that had a child that was only diagnosed a few years before mine, because then we were able to support each other.

      'Being in the dark' would not have been an easy thing to hear your doctor say! We like answers don't we?! But I'm glad to hear you weren't alone spiritually, and that God has brought you through. God bless you Anne.

      Delete
    2. oh ANNE - what a story! And it's so true, it's very lonely when the specialists tell you that there's no one else like your child or you'll never see a doctor that will understand your child's condition, etc. I always rest in the fact that God made her, He knows and understands even if no one else does.
      And it just thrills me to pieces to know that you've read No Safe Haven already!

  9. Loved the review! I do have scoliosis my back is in bad shape. I have a lot of pain in it. But not much can be done about it so I handed it over to God. He is my comforter.It does limit what I can do so I usually am home alone. But I must say it isn't always sickness or a disease that makes us alone.Things in life happen that make us alone death, splitting of a church you loved and friends leaving, and becoming a caregiver for a loved one so you are shut in away from friends you do have. So you just read my life. That's why books are so important to me. I make many friends in them. I can go off to faraway places. I can laugh or I can cry. You the authors and your books are my life! God Bless you!hanks for the chance to win this.

      You are right about all those things that can make us feel alone. I'm glad to hear you have found such fun, comfort, and wonderful travelling experiences in books! Having Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia, I don't go out as much these days, and I honestly don't know what I'd do without all these wonderful books and the beautiful friends I've found through them! Here's hoping you win a copy! God bless you!

    1. Hi CARRIE, those two things - anxiety and depression, can sometimes be the hardest things to deal with because they drain us so and rob us of the truth that God is there with His open arms to love us completely and unconditionally. I'm so happy for you that you are so much better now! God bless you!

  16. Oh my, Noela, you had me hanging at the edge of my seat with this review. This story sounds like my cuppa tea. :) That's what is so wonderful about this blog and others like it. You get the word out on books I might otherwise have missed.

    Now for the question: I've battled anxiety and panic disorder for years. It has caused me to avoid crowds and social settings, and in my profession, that can be disastrous. Battles of the mind can be the loneliest of all. It's so hard at times to admit our frailties, but it helps to realize we're never really alone. Besides the fact we have access to an ever-present God, there's the comfort of knowing we're surrounded by loving, understanding people. I'm grateful for my friends and family in that regard.

    Awesome review!

    1. MARCIA, I have had the same problem for many years. And no amount of therapy helped...so I just talk to the great Counselor -- and keep praying that He will heal whatever is in my subconscious mind that is causing these attacks. I'm doing better and I will be praying the same thing for you, my dear author friend whose books I love! :)

      Noela is sawing logs right now, but she'll be up in a cupla hrs or so.

    2. MARCIA, so lovely to have you drop by! And thrilled you enjoyed the review... you'll have to let me know what you think when you read the book!

      Those invisible battles we face can often make us feel so alone, but thankfully as you say we do have our 'ever-present God'!! It's not always so easy but many times when I've consciously switched my focus onto Him, I've been brought to tears as I soaked up His enveloping love and sweet understanding. And His strength.
      Friends and family can be so helpful aren't they?! And you my sweet friend are very much loved by all of us here!!

      DIANA... didn't get to saw many logs last night so I'm afraid the cabin will have to wait! ;)

      Delete
    3. MARCIA - something really stood out to me in your comment - "admit our frailties" - oh, so very true. It's really been tough on us to be in the media spotlight so much - because then everyone puts you up on a pedestal and I just want to scream, "But I'm just me! I make a thousand mistakes a day!" because it's so hard to live up to everyone's expectations.

  18. My answer to the question is yes, I have suffered for years with migraine headaches that get so debilitating that all I can do is stay in bed and occasionally every so often I will have cluster headaches. I know lots of people suffer from migraine headaches but sometimes it feels no one understands how bad they are. I am the only one in my family that has migraines.

  20. Well, I do have a lot of problems that make me just want to stay at home. Trouble that when I have been in the hosp. and had every kind of test, they never find the answer. So, also makes me not want to go to the doctor when something comes up, and this upsets my kids. But, as I tell them the docs never seem to help. And, sometimes you feel like the doctor thinks it's all in your head. So, just have to do the best I can, and as long as I am able to stay out of the bed and go when I need to, I just live with it. I do pray a lot. But, I do feel that others don't think I really hurt as much as I do. I do have Poly Myalgia Ruematica , which probably causes alot of the muscle aches but the only help is to take harmones which issn't reccommended for often, so just pray a lot and live with it. Have done so many years. Then, I tell myself it could be much worse, like cancer, paralisys, etc. Would like to win this book. Thanks for the chance. Maxie

  21. I was taking my then 12 year to a baseball game in April 2011 aSat. morning on the way there a car that was 3-4 cars in front of me wanted to turn into a store and everyone stop and a lady came from behind me going 45mph she hit me I as I was stop into the tree trimming tree that was in front of me .I threw out my arm to protect Micah from going forward . I am not suppose to be alive .BUT GOD had a different plan I have there is severe muscle sprain in my neck and back from it . I try and think of what would have happen if I was not between that lady who hit me and the truck she would have died right then or if it was a older person or couple they could have die as well .That is what helps me get through this .God had his hand on me and my son that day that is for sure .I believe I am healed no matter what my body says God said I am so I am.There are family members and friends who have supported me . Still have a ways to go .Dr.said I wil always be in some kinda pain and I will never be able to work like I did .Love to win .Thank you ,Dana "Girl"

I'm sorry I haven't been as available as I'd hoped, but I can't do much of anything yet, and then the major drugs they had me on, were great for the pain, but made me loopy.

  26. This sounds like a very exciting and fun book to read--I will have to add it to my TBR list too!
    I think probably the time when I experienced the feeling of loneliness, was probably after having a miscarriage (many years ago). Time goes on and everyone thinks, you have "gone on" and you are now "OK", yet, you are still grieving. During that time, I found a wonderful book, written by a woman who had experienced many miscarriages called "Empty Arms" and it really touched me, where I was at, at that time. This author, had still not had a successful pregnancy, when she wrote the book, and I think may have never gone on to have a child, but God used her to bless many others who had the misfortune of going through similar experiences. I on the other hand was very fortunate to go on to have 2 more healthy children, to add to our 3 we already had. God is GREAT!
    God also, showed me his love while walking along side me during my breast cancer diagnosis and treatments--I plan to write a "mini-story" about that experience someday, as my good friend Diana Flowers has asked...

    2. How wonderful VICKI that God used that book to minister to you in your time of need. No one knows our heart and what we go through like our heavenly Father! You def should write about your experiences, because it just might touch and help others just as you were through the other book 'Empty Arms'. :)
      So happy for you too for your blessing of your 5 special children!

      I hope you have enjoy No Safe Haven just as much as I did when you read it!! God bless!

  27. I'd love to win this! I'm dealing with some health problems and it's easy to feel alone in it, but I know there's a lot of other people dealing with the same thing. My mom's very supportive and helps me a lot. Prayer also helps when I feel alone and when I start to have a pity party! shopgirl152nykiki(at)yahoo(dot)com
