About the Book

This Healing Journey Cover

Book: This Healing Journey

Author: Misty M Beller

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Release date: July 18, 2019

The mountain wilderness of her family’s home in the Canadian Rockies is all Hannah Grant has ever known. Now at the age of twenty-four, she’s on a journey to help her father to find the son he gave up for adoption three decades before. This is Hannah’s chance to discover the life she’s missed out on so far—and hopefully find a husband along the way. But she certainly doesn’t plan to fall for the first man she meets.

Years in the Calvary provided Nathaniel Peak with more than his share of violence and adventure. That life behind him, he wants nothing more than to settle down in the beautiful Montana mountains and raise his own stock—in peace. The last thing he expects is the savagely wounded child who shows up in his barn. Nor the woman he comes to rely on for the girl’s care.

Hannah can’t help but fall in love with the brave Indian child who so desperately needs her, but no matter what, she can’t let herself fall for the man whose past choices go against everything she believes in. As the situation grows worse, Hannah and Nathaniel are forced to make a heart-rending decision to save the girl’s life. Little do they imagine, the choice they make could spell disaster for them all.

My Perspective

I love it when an author brings a series full circle (well two actually), as Beller has done in the last installment of the Heart of the Mountains and Mountain Dream series. Although it wasn’t the main focus of the story, it really meant a lot to me that Beller remembered how previous characters were separated (and for the record, as she recalled some of those earlier scenes their stories came back to life in my mind as if I had just read them yesterday), and found a beautiful way to bring them back together again.

Although I know most people know Beller for her sweet romances, and I did love the romantic theme throughout this book (thank you for another hunky hero), I think the storyline that truly captured my heart was the love that Hannah and Nathaniel had for Itu. Yes, there was a language barrier, but they seemed to make it work. The devotion they had for this young Indian child was so sweet and heartwarming, that you couldn’t help but get caught up in the story. Their connection carried through to the very end, with an emotional scene that had this reader grabbing for tissues.

Don’t miss the wonderful messages woven throughout the story either. Second chances. Forgiveness. Loyalty. Sacrifice. Beller manages to carry these throughout all the different storylines – finding a child, forming a new sibling relationship, a love story, and friendship. She even manages to tug at your heartstrings while watching Reuben’s mama struggle with dementia every now and then, and the sweet way that her husband and son handle her during her times of struggle.

While I am certainly sad to see this series come to an end, I know it just means that Beller has something great in store for her readers in the near future. In the meantime, I’ll just revisit old friends when time allows. 🙂 I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

About the Author

Misty

Misty M. Beller writes romantic mountain stories, set on the 1800s frontier and woven with the truth of God’s love.

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 children now add another dimension to her life, keeping her both grounded and crazy.

More from Misty

Occasionally I hear readers debate about whether they prefer to read a series of books from an author, or only standalone novels. Personally, I love series—both reading and writing them. There’s something about seeing characters I know and love from past books that makes me warm and happy inside. Can you relate?

One of the first series I wrote, the Mountain Dreams Series, included five books that told the stories of several families intertwined through marriage and God’s connections. Those characters are still so dear to my heart! When book 5 ended, I had so many readers ask for more in the series, I began dreaming of a spin-off series with a very special connection to the hero in book 5. Enter: the Heart of the Mountains Series.

I’ve LOVED every story in this 7-book collection, taking each journey with the characters as I laughed and cried and uncovered their secrets. For the final 7th book, I’m thrilled to announce that I’m reuniting many of the characters from BOTH series! Simeon Grant (from Heart of the Mountains, book 1) goes on a journey to find the son he gave up for adoption as an infant (the hero in Mountain Dreams, book 5).

This Healing Journey has its own leading lady, Hannah Grant (the baby born at the end of This Treacherous Journey, all grown up and as tough as any lady raised in the Canadian mountain wilderness). And a new character, Nathaniel Peak, who stars as the hero (and who I fell in love with IMMEDIATELY!).

Even if you’ve never read any of my stories, I think you’ll enjoy this one. Especially if you love adventurous mountain stories as much as I do!

  1. I love the cover. It’s gorgeous. I think the story line sounds really intriguing. What year is the story set in?

  2. This sounds good! I still haven’t read anything by this author, even though I have read many glowing reviews of her books. That needs to change!
