Normally a book that is co-authored ends up somewhat choppy. Thankfully, this was definitely not the case with this new novel from Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse. In Beyond The Silence, I found a story written by two famous authors that came together seamlessly. It is an excellent historical novel that had me turning pages – or flipping them the best I could on my Kindle – as fast as I could to find out the ending. And not only does it have an intriguing plot but both authors truly bring their own expertise to the table in a big way.

the bishop's wife book coverReviewed by Sarah McCubbin

Linda Wallheim serves alongside her husband Kurt in his role as a Mormon bishop. Their five sons are almost all grown and her days are spent caring for the needs of the ward. Much of what she does is very ordinary and involves community service, visiting people in their homes and offering a listening ear. On the outside, Linda appears calm and poised, but internally she finds herself struggling. In caring for their community, her work increasingly intersects with women whose lives are crumbling largely because of the many secrets they hold close and the patriarchal structure that prevents them from flourishing.

In The Bishop’s Wife, Mette Ivie Harrison’s central story focuses on a man name Jared Helm, whose wife, Carrie, has simply disappeared, leaving him to raise his 5-year-old daughter alone. Linda grows increasingly
