On her way to deliver vaccines to a mining town in the Montana Territory, Ingrid Chastain never anticipated a terrible accident would leave her alone and badly injured in the wilderness. When rescue comes in the form of a mysterious mountain man, she’s hesitant to trust him, but the journey ahead will change their lives more than they could have known.
I really loved this book! I started it last night and finished it today and I wasn’t able to put it down except for when I had to go tend to work and school, haha! Definitely a solid read.
I guess I’ll start off with the cover. Big kudos to Bethany House’s cover designer for this cover because this is the kind of cover I’d dream of creating. It’s by far one of the prettiest covers I’ve ever seen because of how realistic it is to the plot of the book, but it’s got this dreamy vibe to it that is absolutely perfect! I also love the side cover and the back.
I’ve never read one of Beller’s books, but what stuck out to me in Hope’s Highest Mountain are the characters’ beautiful names as well as the gorgeous fluid writing. The writing was so smooth and worked so well for this book. It really complemented the slow but still action-filled plot as well as the dialogue. I couldn’t get enough of Joanna and Samuel’s sweet bond with each other, and it really broke my heart when one of the characters got sick.
Hope’s Highest Mountain is the perfect recipe for a book when one’s craving for a historical fiction with elements of wilderness survival. 5 stars.
