About the Book

Book: Freedom in the Mountain Wind
Author: Misty M. Beller
Genre: Christian Historical Romance
Release Date: January 14, 2020
The last epic journey before her life changes forever. 
Susanna Wilkins will do anything to make her father’s final dream come true, including trek along the path Lewis and Clark explored into the untamed wilds of the Rocky Mountains. Every mile is more crucial now that lung cancer is stealing Pa’s last days faster than she can come to terms with losing him. The journey becomes harder than she ever expected, but paddling upriver through fierce rapids and fighting hungry grizzlies isn’t what terrifies her the most.
Beaver Tail endured more than he can stand from the women in his Blackfoot camp, but the last disaster gave him the final shove he needed to join this band of brothers searching for one of their group who’s gone missing. The last thing he expected was to find a white woman and her sick father stranded at the base of massive waterfall. His plan is to help them carry their oversize canoe and supplies, then leave them to their strange mission. Yet, the more he learns about the pair, the more he realizes his life is about to be derailed—again.
From a USA Today bestselling author comes another epic journey through breathless landscapes and adventure so intense, lives will never be the same.

When God Directs a Google Search…
I’m a history lover, but you may have guessed that since I write historical romance stories. 😊 Most of my books are set in the Rocky Mountains during the mid-1800s, but as I began brainstorming ideas for this new series, my heart became drawn earlier to the earlier part of the century—a time period with which I wasn’t quite as familiar with the history.
I love when God orchestrates even the most mundane part of our lives, including Google searches! During one particular search (I can’t even remember what I was originally looking for), I stumbled across part of a journal entry from the Lewis and Clark expedition, which trekked across Montana during the time period I was looking into. I’d forgotten that expedition had even entered the territory that would later become Montana, but now I was fascinated.
After finding an audiobook of the abridged journals of Lewis and Clark, I happily listened to almost 19 hours of fascinating stories from the Corp of Exploration’s journey up the Missouri River and across the mountains to the Pacific Ocean, then back mostly the over the same path they’d come. The stories the men told were so amazing, and the detail of their trials so absorbing, I’ve actually re-listened to the audiobook twice! Many of the true tales wouldn’t be believable in fiction, but as I listened, my mind formed the premise for Freedom in the Mountain Wind: a father/daughter duo who sets out almost two decades after Lewis and Clark’s journey, determined to retrace the steps of that famous expedition.
I hope you enjoy this story as much as I loved writing it! And whether you’re a history lover or not, I pray that you too will be touched by this “epic journey through breathless landscapes and adventure so intense, lives will never be the same.”


Review.jpg

All historical fiction readers please pay attention. There is a new book out that you must read. This story is rich in history and adventure with land that only God could have made. The author is superb in making the story come to life and make you feel you are part of it. I loved reading how determined Susanna is in making her father's dying wish come true. I worried that he would not make it as his health deteriorated.  The terrain was rough and dangerous. I could here the bears off in the distance as they cried out to their cubs.  I envisioned Susanna on her journey and  she explores the land and hears the waterfall off in the distance. i love waterfalls and think they are soothing and a sign of God's beauty.

Beaver Tail is an honorable man who stumbles upon Susanna and her father. It is clear they need help and I admired his strength and gentle spirit. The adventure really starts as they begin their long journey. At first he is not  sure he wants to continue helping them but the more he is around Susanna the more he finds himself wanting to help. I really liked how the author took  two people from different cultures and placed them together to show how everyone can get along. Susanna's father shares his faith with Beaver Tail and I began to wonder if  his heart would soften to God's love. There is no lack of danger as they come upon snakes, bears and other animals in the forest. 

The story is very clean and has a nice spiritual aspect that flows throughout the book. It details how people work together and perhaps find love along the way. Will Susanna's father make it to his destination? Can Beaver Tail find happiness with Susanna? Don't miss this exciting new series that is filled with a bit of danger and lives  that are changed forever.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
