This Daring Journey: Heart of The Mountains Book 6 By Misty M. Beller

I received this book from Celebrate Lit Blogging and the author for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.


Book Description: 

The only hope to keep her newborn baby alive is to reach the safety of her Indian people… This mountain man is the last person she should trust to get her there.

As a half-Indian raised among her Peigan tribe, Moriah Clark knows better than to trust white people. The tragedy that resulted in her birth is proof enough. But when her trusted grandfather marries her to a white man, she has no choice but to obey and hope this new life isn’t her downfall. Her white husband turns out to be a decent sort, but his unexpected death left her to birth a newborn baby among hostile mountain men. She wants nothing more than to retreat to the safe haven of her tribal upbringing. When a mysterious frontiersman arrives on her doorstep seeking her deceased husband, his offer to escort her and the babe to her people seems like the opportunity she’s been praying to find. But can she trust him?
Samuel Grant has been sent to retrieve Henry Clark for his sister’s wedding, but the sight that greets him at the little cabin in the woods is not what he expected. Not only has the man died, but Henry’s wife is fighting off an aggressive gang of men at gunpoint—while trying to conceal a newborn. He can’t leave the pair unattended, so helping her travel into the mountain country to reach her family seems like the only option. If he can win her trust, that is.
Such a grueling journey with a three-week-old baby will be risky, but the challenges that arise test them far more than either expected. When a devastating surprise increases the danger ten-fold, Moriah focuses all her efforts on keeping her newborn daughter alive. Maybe that’s why she doesn’t realize how much of her heart belongs to the mountain man—until it’s too late. 

My Thoughts: 

This Daring Journey is the latest book (#6) in Misty M. Beller's Heart of The Mountains series and I absolutely LOVE it. I had the pleasure of reading This Homeward Journey (book 5) and couldn't wait to read this next book. Misty Beller writes with authority about the United States in 1800's, the Indians and their tribes, Frontiersmen, the wilderness and surviving there. I truly enjoy Misty Beller's writing. Her style of writing puts me right there in this Daring Journey with Samuel, Moriah, and the other characters in this book. I felt like I was there experiencing all of this. The characters in this book are well rounded and real to life. I have to say my favorite characters are Samuel and Moriah. The connection they had with one another and the faith they shared. The help they gave each other and how they survived. I loved being there seeing how their love came softly. I am hoping I am doing this book and author justice. This book is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone. Misty Beller has that special ability to give enough details of the other books for new readers and not too much detail that readers of the series aren't bored. I definitely cannot wait to read the next book in this series. I HIGHLY recommend this book and author to anyone who enjoys Historical Christian Fiction, you will not be disappointed.  I give this book 5 STARS.

More from Misty

How did I get started writing? I’ve always loved to read, but several years ago I was putting together my bucket list, and realized that I really did want to write a novel. So, “Write a novel that’s published” made it near the top! I decided, it’s now or never, and made the commitment to do it. So, I had a general idea that I wanted it to be a Christian historical western romance. But where to start? I finally decided I needed to find a good book to help me plan. I stumbled upon (a.k.a. God led me to) the best possible book to help me get started with a great plan: Plot and Structure by James Scott Bell. For all you writers out there, I can’t recommend it highly enough! From there, I’ve soaked in every bit of writing instruction I can from some amazing groups and individuals. And I’ve spent countless hours sitting with my laptop pouring out words onto the screen. Writing is in my blood. It’s my passion. A true gift from my Heavenly Father, and I pray daily that he uses the words for His purpose.
