Kimberley & Kayla Woodhouse write as a mother-daughter team different than any you've heard of before. Kayla is a young teen. Intrigued? Read on.
Kimberley Woodhouse is a wife, mother, writer, and musician approaching life with a positive outlook despite difficult circumstances. Her previous book, Welcome Home: Our Family's Journey to Extreme Joy, chronicles her daughter's extremely rare health issues and how the Woodhouses received an amazing gift through the ABC television program Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Kim and her husband have two children and live in Colorado.
Kayla Woodhouse is a teenage author whose life-altering medical condition (a nerve disorder that prevents her body from regulating its temperature or sensing pain) has not stopped her love for swimming and other activities.
About the book:
Anesia Naltsiine has made mistakes that have cost her--and her 13 year old daughter, Zoya--dearly. But no more. She will prove her worth as a mother and as a breeder of champion sprint racing dogs. Her kennel is so successful that buyers come from all over the world. So why does she still feel worthless?
Zoya misses the dad she never knew. All she wants is to follow in his footsteps as a champion sprint dog racer. But when she witnesses a murder in their town of North Pole, Alaska, she finds herself thrown into dangers and emotions she can't begin to understand.
Enter Sean Connelly, a new employee at the kennel with demons of his own. When he discovers macro-chips bearing military secrets implanted in the Naltsinne's dogs, a puzzle tracing back to the murder unfolds. Then strange accidents start happening; clearly someone wants Zoya silenced. Anesia tells her daughter it's not safe to race, but Zoya, angry with the world--and against God--takes off across dangerous Alaskan territory alone. Anesia and Sean must race against time to save the girl and themselves.
