Hope's Highest Mountain: Hearts of Montana Book One By Misty M. Beller

I received this book for no charge in exchange for my honest review. The opinions expressed here are my own. 


Book Description: 

When 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.


My Thoughts: 

Hope's Highest Mountain is the first book in Misty M. Beller's latest series, Hearts of Montana, and it is spectacular. As a fan of Christian Historical Fiction I just recently read books by Misty M Beller so I was excited to have the opportunity to start with this new series. Misty M. Beller writes with authority about our world in the 19th century frontier especially Montana, smallpox, doctoring, loss of family, and mining towns. I love Misty M. Beller's style of writing, she definitely places her readers right there in the story experiencing life with the characters. I found the characters well written and real people experiencing real life. I found myself drawn to Ingrid (and Handsome too). Her faith and tenacity are admirable. Ingrid faces the world knowing God is with her. I could NOT put this book down. From start to finish this book had a hold of me and left me wanting more. I cannot say enough good about this book and this author. I cannot wait to read more by Misty M Beller and this series. I give this book 5 STARS.

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! ?
