My Special Scavenger Hunt Guest: Melanie Dobson

Writing fiction is Melanie Dobson’s excuse to explore abandoned houses, travel to unique places, and spend hours reading old books and journals. The award-winning author of twenty books, Melanie enjoys stitching together both time-slip and historical novels including Hidden Among the Stars, Catching the Wind, and Chateau of Secrets.

Here's a little bit more about Hidden Among the Stars: In 1938, a young Austrian named Max Dornbach asks his friend Annika to hide Jewish heirlooms at his family’s estate on the picturesque Lake Hallstatt. But when Max also brings a young Jewish woman to hide at the castle, it complicates Annika’s feelings and puts their entire plan―even their very lives―in jeopardy. Eighty years later children’s bookstore owner Callie Randall discovers a cryptic list in an old Bambi book, and she partners with a local history professor to uncover a gripping World War II mystery about what happened to Annika and this lost treasure.

Hidden Among The Stars is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Christianbook.com

Hidden Treasure

by Melanie Dobson



Near the end of World War II, Nazi officers began hiding what they’d plundered. Gold. Jewelry. Trunks of cash. Some of it was dumped in Austria’s lake district as they fled south, and divers have spent decades searching for lost treasure in the depths of these alpine lakes.

Fifteen years ago, my husband and I boated across Lake Hallstatt, captivated by Austria’s snow-capped mountains, an abandoned castle, and the storybook town on the shore. The waters plunged to more than four hundred feet below us with numerous hiding places under rock ledges, felled logs, and shifting sands. As I marveled at the beauty around us, I wondered what secrets this lake harbored far below a diver’s range.

Lake Hallstatt

Hallstatt Castle

A story about Lake Hallstatt and its castle ignited in my mind, but like the purported treasure, it seemed to play a game of hide-and-seek. For years I researched and wrote and mulled over the disjointed pieces of this story, but it never quite came together. When my mailbox filled with rejections, I moved on to write another novel—and then twenty more.

Recently I rediscovered the event in the Gospel of Luke where after a long night of fishing—a long night of failure—Jesus asks Simon Peter to return with his empty boat to the sea. After Peter failed to catch fish on his own, Jesus called him into deeper waters. Scary waters. A place, perhaps, where Peter had never fished before.

Peter was an expert at his craft. He knew that fish were caught in the shallows, during the night, but Jesus asked Peter to trust him with his dreams, his talents, his training. When Peter obeyed, sailing out in the light, Jesus filled his nets to overflowing.

Now I’m not a gifted fisherwoman. In fact, I’m terrified of fish. But I realized Peter’s story mirrored my own journey. In order to reclaim my novel about Austria’s hidden treasure, I had to step back into the waters of this story and sail out to the depths. Use the tools that I’d learned over the years to cast my net, and then, with the grace of God, plunge far below the surface of my heart and mind to fish out all the stubborn pieces.

The legendary treasure in Austria’s lake district has eluded divers, but after a fifteen-year journey, I’ve found a treasure of my own. Hidden Among the Stars is different than any story I’ve published before, perhaps because it took years of searching before God called me to sail. I’m forever grateful that I followed Him into the deeper waters.

  8. When I was young (3rd, 4th, 5th grade)we lived in Germany. I'd so love to go back! And, I'd love to see New Zealand, and visit Australia. There are just so many good places to see, and so much history in places both good and places that are challenging (I'm so never going to get on a Chinese train, where there are no lavatories but that doesn't dissuade the travelers.) If I were rich, I'd be doing it now! Enjoy all you can, and see if you can write some of it off as "research" (which it is!)

  13. First of all - so proud of you, as always! Secondly, I've never been one to really crave world travel, but this morning I read about an 8 month world cruise that goes to something like 59 countries. I think THAT would be the way to see the world. (I hate flying.) So now all I need is an independently wealthy benefactor! :)

Lewis), and Australia (because my sister went there on a missions trip and loved it). But Paris is my dream place, because of the romance and the art and architecture.

  147. I would rather explore some places in the US that I haven't seen. Niagra Falls, Macinac Island, Alaska, Hawaii, etc. World travel has increasingly become more dangerous.

  159. What encouragement it is to know that some writing journies take time. Often we need that time for the story to be marinated through our life experiences so that when it’s finally ready it’s the best taste to our readers.

  168. I just returned from my first trip to Europe. We enjoyed London, Paris, Lucerne, Venice, Florence, and Rome, but there is still so much to see! We would love a trip to Great Britain and Ireland, but I'd also love to see Austria and countries in Eastern Europe. Really, they all sound wonderful!
