About the Book

Book: Hope’s Highest Mountain
Author: Misty M. Beller
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: October, 2019

Hope's Highest MountainWhen Ingrid Chastain agreed to accompany her father to deliver vaccines to a mining town in the Montana Territory, she never could have anticipated a terrible accident would leave her alone and badly injured in the wilderness. Rescue comes in the form of a mysterious mountain man who tends her injuries, but she’s hesitant to put her trust in this man who seems to have wounds of his own.

After tragedy struck his family, Micah Bradley left his work as a doctor and escaped to the wilds of Montana. But his self-imposed solitude is broken when he finds Ingrid in desperate need of medical attention, and he’s forced to call on his doctoring skills once again.

Micah can’t help but admire Ingrid’s tenacity despite the severity of her injuries, until he learns the crate she brought contains smallpox vaccines to help quell a nearby outbreak. With Ingrid dead set on delivering the medicine–with or without his help–he has no choice but to accompany her. As they set off through the treacherous, snow-covered Rocky Mountains against all odds, the journey ahead will change their lives more than they could have known.

Hope’s Highest Mountain (Heart of Montana #1)

My Thoughts:

I have enjoyed reading a few of Misty Beller’s earlier books and I was super excited to be able to read this latest addition to her writing collection. I was not disappointed in the least! This story delivered all the drama and beautiful word imagery that I have grown to love from this author. I especially appreciate how she seamlessly weaves the gospel truth and a deep love of God into the characters in such an organic, natural way.

Vivid and realistic these characters fairly leaped off the page and into the room with me. While I’ve never broken a bone, I could easily empathize with Ingrid. Not only the loss of her mobility but the crushing loss of her father, her only parent, and her favorite companion. Thrust into a cold, unknown world, on a mission of mercy. Ingrid’s strength of character, her deep faith, and trust in God was a beautiful thing to behold. Micah too has had more than his fair share of heartbreak, he didn’t have a strong faith to fall back on, but he’s learning from Ingrid what it looks like to have strong faith. Even the delightful secondary characters bring charm and faith to this story.

Everything in this story blends so well. From start to finish this story is a delight to read! if you enjoy stories set on the western frontier in the 1800s, then I would encourage you to pick up a copy of this book to enjoy!

(I received a complimentary copy from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.)

More from Misty

Remember Lassie? Old Yeller? Chance and Shadow from the movie Homeward Bound? There was something about these dogs that gripped my heartstrings and made me love them as though I’d known them for years. (And, yes, I cried during every one of these movies and books.)

Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had real dogs I’ve loved too. As far back as I can remember, we’ve had at least one or two dogs, and each one has been my very best friend. They’ve suffered my undying love, even allowing me to dress them up like dolls during my younger years.

But the dogs in my stories have a special place in my heart. Handsome, the sweet little black fluffball in Hope’s Highest Mountain is no exception! He was the runt of the litter, and such a dark black that the story’s hero nicknamed him Shadow. You can see the picture that inspired Handsome at the book’s Pinterest page. Those eyes! Hard not to fall in love, right?

The more I wrote in the story, the more I enjoyed getting to know this little guy, and I could almost feel his soft puppy fur as he snuggled in close. I completely see why Ingrid (the heroine) is smitten him! As you read Hope’s Highest Mountain, I hope you love Handsome as much as I do. Please give him some extra petting for me! ?
