  • Wonderful historical suspense

    The old is gone - the new has begun. 2 Corinthians 5:17b In the rough world of 1867, life at Settler’s Fort in the Montana Territory means hard work with little playtime for widowed Joanna Watson. Spending an afternoon at the local swimming hole with Laura, a neighbor, is all she can offer her young son Samuel on a hot summer day. When they are not found there, and a murder has obviously occurred, fear settles deep into Joanna’s heart. Will they be found alive? Isaac Bowen was one of the men that rescued Joanna and Samuel from the mountain wilderness after her husband died. Believing he can help find her son and friend, they set out to follow the trail left by the outlaws. The author has done an incredible job of detailing what the search and rescue would have entailed. The pain and panic experienced by Joanna could almost be felt - I wonder if I would have been as strong under such overwhelming odds. Life with the outlaws was very dangerous causing fear and discouragement for Laura as she tried to care for Samuel. There is constant action, danger and suspense as the characters learn what it really means to trust and rely on God, in spite of the circumstances. You will not put this aside until you know how this ends. Will help come in time? An ARC of this book was received through Bethany House Publishers, Baker Publishing Group and NetGalley. The comments and impressions are my own and were in no way solicited.

  • Excellent Historical Fiction

    Misty Beller writes an amazing adventure story. This book had such an engaging storyline. The mother and widow, Joanna Watson's son is missing. The story takes her to rugged mountains in the search for him along with Isaac Bowen. They face many trials, dangers and setbacks as they travel, enough to make anyone give up trying. It is a beautifully written story filled with a mother's enduring love. I really enjoyed this! I received an ebook copy from NetGalley. All thoughts are my own.

  • Wonderful book

    This is the second of the Hearts Of Montana series, but it is a standalone book. Ms. Beller does it again with this one. After the son and friend of Joanna disappear, she enlists the help of Issac to go and find them. The story covers their adventures of their quest to find the missing pair. I love Ms. Beller's books. They are so full of detail, you can see the places she describes. I highly recommend this book for anyone that likes historical romance. It also contains references from the Bible that I really like. You won't go wrong with this book. I was given a copy, but my review is how I feel.

  • Redeeming love

    This was Book 2 in the Hearts of Montana series, which can be read as a standalone. I found it dragged a bit and wasn't as engaging as the first book, yet it was still a nice, clean historical romance. Isaac has had a soft spot for Joanna ever since he helped rescue them when they were first headed to the settlement. Now her son and a young lady have been kidnapped and he is determined to help once again. As they spend more time together the bond and attraction between them grows, yet Isaac's past has the potential to prevent them from moving forward. Overall this was an enjoyable book with fairly good flow and just enough drama and action to keep my interest. I liked the reminder that we are new creations in Christ and that our pasts are forever buried and covered over by grace. I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review. All opinions expressed are solely my own.

  • An Epic Journey of Love and Redemption!

    This is the second book in the “Heart of Montana” Series, and I loved it as much as I loved the first one, which had totally captivated me last year. My heart ached for Joanna since the first book, as she is recently widowed, left alone to care for her five year old son Samuel, who is a very enthusiastic and spirited little boy. Isaac Bowen has an important part in their rescue, finding Samuel when he’s lost during the journey, and then getting them safely to Settler’s Fort. He was since in awe of Joanna, but he knew he couldn’t pursue her because he wasn’t worthy, because of his past sins. But then, Joanna’s son is kidnapped with Laura, Joanna’s friend who was taking care of him, and Joanna comes to him for help. He’d do anything for her and her son, even if he knows there would never be a future for them, so he sets with her after the trail of the outlaws, only a few hours after the kidnapping. Isaac is almost sure of who the kidnapper is, but he’s afraid of voicing his suspicion to Joanna, because the gang that could’ve kidnapped her son is the gang that he started and worked with, before he realized of his erred ways and changed. But maybe this is his opportunity for his redemption. If only the truth wouldn’t be exposed so that Joanna wouldn’t fairly reject him and hate him for it… But as they trail along, and he gets to know Joanna more, he knows the truth cannot be avoided. Can he hope for redemption, not only from the woman he’s beginning to love, but from God Himself? This was a beautiful story. Isaac and Joanna have an epic journey chasing the kidnappers, full of perils from the elements, fighting against injuries that slow them down, and fighting their own demons: Joanna’s fear of losing her son, Isaac’s fear of of his past catching up with him. Even if it seems there are just many obstacles to endure, it’s in fact this struggle against the impossible what will lead them to seek and trust God, the Only one who can really save them. The story has a beautiful and inspiring message about leaning on God, and bask in His Love and Providence. Isaac’s story of redemption was beautifully told too. It made me cry. There’s so much to learn from this book and you will do it without knowing it. It’s just natural and not preachy. And the romance is achingly sweet. I loved the despcription of the nature and landscape during the journey. Misty Beller is great at making you imagine the scenery with detail. There was a lot of action, so the story didn’t drag. And there was a surprising third point of view, from Laura, the kidnapped woman along with Samuel, which made it very interesting, because we usually don’t get to see the other side out of the main characters. It was a good addition and helped understand better what was happening. Samuel just tore my heart, he’s so adorable! I’m hoping Laura will be next in turn for a story in this series. I’m just sorry I’ll have to wait till next year but it’s so much worth it!
