Hope's Highest Mountain and #giveaway!!!!

About the Book

Book: Hope’s Highest Mountain
Author: Misty M. Beller
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: October, 2019
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 (Reviewed by Marilyn): I was immersed into the action and the adventure found in Hope’s Highest Mountain by Misty M. Beller. The courage and hope that Ingrid had after a tragic accident in the rugged terrain of Montana in the middle of winter gave way to her inner strength and faith she held dear. When she realized she was being nursed back to health by a former doctor Micah, she was determined that the delivery of the precious cargo he had salvage from the accident be delivered. There were so many twists and turns in the story with snowstorms, misfortunate with new injuries and even unexpected provisions that kept the story moving at a rapid pace. The ups and downs of traveling in the hazardous winter conditions of Montana was so vivid I felt like I was in the mist of a winter storm The hope that Ingrid clung to brought soul searching to life for Micah, as he had been hiding away to cope with his heartbreak of grief. I enjoyed the letters he had written that brought more insight into his past that interspersed in the story. Ingrid and Micah’s journey to Settler’s Fort will have readers enthralled to see how their lives and others might be rescued. I appreciate the traits found in Ingrid with knowing her hope was truly in God. Beller’s story is not preaching but a gentle reminder that God is hope, love, peace and joy when a life is surrendered to Him despite being in the valley or highest mountain top.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit and the author for the book tour. I was not required to write a positive review but have shared my own personal thoughts.

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! ?
