"This Freedom Journey " by Misty M. Beller Book Tour and GiveAway

About the Book

Title: This Freedom Journey  
Author: Misty M. Beller  
Genre: Christian Historical Romance  
Release Date: July 11, 2018

Adrien Lockman is through with the political unrest and bloodshed in his home country of France, so he sets off to the Canadian territory’s mountain frontier, in search of a place where a man can live his own life in peace. The last thing he expects to find is a woman, half-starved and half-frozen in a shack nestled among the towering peaks of the great Rocky Mountains. Mary Standish thought she’d finally found a place where she was accepted, trapping with her husband for the Hudson Bay Company. But when he dies after a gruesome grizzly fight, she determines to carry on their work. After all, life in these remote mountains is better than enduring the scorn and snubs of “civilized” folk. When she’s forced to face a winter harder than any she’s endured yet, her stubbornness may just be the death of her. Until a stranger appears at her ramshackle door. Adrien had planned to explore the mountain country all winter before he settles down to build a farm in the spring, but he can’t leave this woman to die in the elements. Even though she seems desperate for him to go. As Mary regains strength, she’s torn between wanting to save her dignity, and craving the respect of this man who’s slipped past her defenses. As the winter worsens, the truth becomes all too real—the only way they’ll survive is together.

My Review: 
"This Freedom Journey" by Misty M. Beller  is just as good as the other two books in the series.

While reading this novella I ask my husband, "Do people really eat fox and wolf" he replied  "I guess so, if they are hungry enough"  I replied " Well in this book they do"!

I really like this series which is surprising because generally I don't like survival stories but these books feel more like a story about people rising above their struggles than a book about surviving the wilderness and the elements of nature.

This book shows that we don't need to preach but to show God's love through our actions.

There are a couple of scenes that really made me want to cry!

I think my favorite character has to be an animal named Domino. Ok, I admit all the characters in this book are my favorite because there are only three.

Even though "This Freedom Journey " is part of a series it can be read as a standalone as well as the other two books.  There is a fourth book but since I haven't read it I can't say anything about it except to say it is on my to be read list.

I recommend "This Freedom Journey "  by Misty M. Beller to any reader who likes clean love story and survived stories and Christian Historical Romances.

I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.

About the Author

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 daughters now add another dimension to her life, keeping her both grounded and crazy. God has placed a desire in Misty’s heart to combine her love for Christian fiction and the simpler ranch life, writing historical novels that display God’s abundant love through the twists and turns in the lives of her characters.

A Inside Look at the Cover for This Freedom Journey

My book covers are one of my favorite parts of the creative process! With most of my books, I have the cover done early, usually as I’m first brainstorming the story. I love to have the heroine on my cover, and I work hard to make sure the woman on the front matches the heroine I’m envisioning for the story. That way I can describe her in the novel the way she looks on the cover. Sometimes I even work in the outfit she’s wearing on the cover! This Freedom Journey is a novella in my Heart of the Mountains series, so I wanted the cover to be similar in layout and style to the other books in that series. The setting is winter in the Canadian Rockies, so I knew Mary (the heroine) had to be bundled warmly! Funny story: Mary is mentioned in the other two books, although they’re set later in her life. When I first described her in the other books, I imagined her with amber brown eyes. When I chose the final cover for This Freedom Journey, I had to go back and change the amber brown eyes in those other manuscripts to the riveting blue on the cover. 😊
