Happy Friday!

The book I’m featuring this week is:

Hope's Highest Mountain (Heirs of Montana, #1)

Amazon | Goodreads

My darling Rachel,
You were everything to me. You still are. Don’t ever forget that.

I am very excited to dig into this book very soon. It officially releases in just a few short days on October 1, 2019. I read my first book by Misty Beller shortly before I met her at CFRR earlier this year and thoroughly loved it (although I wished I’d started at the beginning so I could read them all in order). I can’t wait to follow this series right from the beginning ❤

About the Book:

Ingrid Chastain readily 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. When rescue comes in the form of a mysterious mountain man who tends her injuries, she’s hesitant to put her trust in this quiet man who seems to have his own wounds.

Micah Bradley left his work as a doctor after unintentionally bringing home the smallpox disease that killed his wife and daughter. But his self-imposed solitude in the wilds of Montana is broken when he finds Ingrid in desperate need of medical attention, and he’s forced to face his regret and call on his doctoring skills once again.

Micah can’t help but admire Ingrid’s tenacious determination 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 trekking through the mountains to deliver 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.

About the Author:Misty M. Beller

Misty M. Beller writes romantic mountain stories, set on the 1800s frontier and woven with the truth of God’s love. For a limited time, you can get her bestselling novel, The Lady and the Mountain Man, FREE here: http://bit.ly/2gvrW1a

She was raised on a farm in South Carolina, so her Southern roots run deep. Growing up, her family was close, and they continue to keep that priority today. Her husband and daughters now add another dimension to her life, keeping her both grounded and crazy.

God has placed a desire in Misty’s heart to combine her love for Christian fiction and the simpler ranch life, writing historical novels that display God’s abundant love through the twists and turns in the lives of her characters.

Writing is a dream come true for Misty. Her family—both immediate and extended—is the foundation that holds her secure in that dream.

  2. Sounds like a great book! The book I’m featuring on my blog this week is a nonfiction by Ariniko O’Meara, A City Saunter Story. Here’s the first line to Chapter 40: “Whatever you do, don’t walk Baker Street!” I read the message three times. As much as I knew my friend meant well, I felt she wasn’t fully grasping my project.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog I’m sharing the first line from Christmas in Winter Hill by Melody Carlson. I’m currently reading Freedom’s Kiss by Sarah Monzon. I’m just starting chapter 29, so I’ll share the first line from there.

    “Florida, 1832
    Winnie felt like a cow being led to slaughter, just waiting her turn to stand before the butcher with a club in his hand.”

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with excellent reading time. 🙂❤📖

  5. This book is on its way to me!

    My first line is from chapter 2 of Something Old, Something New by Kathleen Maher in Lessons on Love novella collection by Barbour:

    A brisk breeze blew in from the Hudson on Josh’s early morning walk, and he drew in the earthy scents of river and pine.

  6. Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Least Expected” by Autumn Macarthur:

    “Maggie Golding ran her fingers through her multi-coloured hair, planted her hands on her hips, and took a step back to examine the latest window display she’d created for Pettett and Mayfields London department store.”
