A minor character in Dr. Karen Petit’s third novel becomes a major character in her fourth novel. In Roger Williams in an Elevator, one of the minor characters, Heidi, is in the “Hidden Elevator” chapter. As a part of this scene, Heidi hides her faith and even denies that she has said a prayer. Readers can see some of this action in the first chapter of Unhidden Pilgrims: "Heidi Hiding in a Dream."
In Unhidden Pilgrims, Heidi moves forward and soon becomes unhidden. While she still sometimes has to hide, she also shares her faith. She is now the protagonist. Sharing her faith has helped her to become a major character, rather than a minor one.
Heidi is a new H.I.D.E. agent. Creating the details of Heidi's journey through a shooting situation has been an inspirational process for the author of Unhidden Pilgrims. Positive actions happening during a negative situation show the importance of unhiding and sharing our faith.
