This Healing Journey by Misty M. Beller

Mountains and the people who live among them have always fascinated me! It is time for the final installment of the Heart of the Mountains series, This Healing Journey book 7!

about the book

She’s never left her home in the mountain wilderness of the Canadian Rockies—until now. Little did she realize this journey would change her life in every way. 

This Healing Journey by Misty M. BellerThe 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 cavalry 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 thoughts

This Healing Journey is the heartwarming conclusion of the delightfully epic and adventurous Heart of the Mountains series. This entire journey and the families intertwined within it are wonderfully vivid and captivating.

Hannah is the epitome of compassionate and hardworking mountain folk. She’s clever, intelligent, and wise enough to lean on faith, especially when the going gets tough. Her relationship with her parents (especially her daddy) made my heart squeeze and melt.

Nathaniel is seeking a new start and I admire his determination and willingness to sacrifice for future success. Duty, honor, and faith are his guiding principles and I have to appreciate a man just looking for a quiet corner of the world to call his own.

Longtime fans of Beller’s Mountain Dreams series will be doubly pleased with several crossover cameos by beloved characters. Themes of adoption, informal fostering, and blended families reflect emotions and possible conflicts people continue to experience today. I highly recommend this story and the entire Heart of the Mountains series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
