"Freedom in the Mountain Wind" by Misty M. Beller Book Tour and GiveAway

About the Book

Book: Freedom in the Mountain Wind
Author: Misty M. Beller
Genre: Christian Historical Romance
Release Date: January 14, 2020
The last epic journey before her life changes forever. 
Susanna Wilkins will do anything to make her father’s final dream come true, including trek along the path Lewis and Clark explored into the untamed wilds of the Rocky Mountains. Every mile is more crucial now that lung cancer is stealing Pa’s last days faster than she can come to terms with losing him. The journey becomes harder than she ever expected, but paddling upriver through fierce rapids and fighting hungry grizzlies isn’t what terrifies her the most.
Beaver Tail endured more than he can stand from the women in his Blackfoot camp, but the last disaster gave him the final shove he needed to join this band of brothers searching for one of their group who’s gone missing. The last thing he expected was to find a white woman and her sick father stranded at the base of massive waterfall. His plan is to help them carry their oversize canoe and supplies, then leave them to their strange mission. Yet, the more he learns about the pair, the more he realizes his life is about to be derailed—again.
From a USA Today bestselling author comes another epic journey through breathless landscapes and adventure so intense, lives will never be the same.

I have enjoyed every book that I have read that was written by Misty Beller. and"Freedom in the Mountain Wind" is  another book that  I liked.   Her books are clean romance along with detailed and actual descriptions of the wilderness and dangers that were part of the time period in these novels. There are even scenes involving animals attack, yes, I admit I didn't mind reading about these attacks, but if I was watching them in a movie, I would have different feelings and want them to be toned down. But, in books, these scenes let the readers know what the characters are really feeling and going through.

I like that even with Mr. Wilkins illness, he is still a Godly father and doesn't back down from his Christian beliefs.
This book is so real, it shows that everything doesn't always end with a happy everafter for all. Yes, the tears will fall if you cry at scenes you read. I am not ashamed to admit that I do, it just shows that the authors writes them so well that the reader can actually see them happening instead of just reading the words. 

This is the first book in this series, and I already wanting to read the other books that are coming.

The love between Susanna Wilkins and her father is something you didn't really see and heard about very much. I admire Susanna for enduring the dangers and the sacrifices to make her father's dream too see the untamed wilds of the Rocky Mountains.  

The only thing I disliked about this story was the father's illness was lung cancer. You will have to read the book to see  if he is cured or not.  I think the fact that lung cancer was part of the story is another fact that makes the book more factual for me, because both my mother-law and mother died from lung cancer. So I actually could relate to Mr Wilkins and Susanna.

I was amazed that the Beaver Tail and the men he traveled with so willing to be heroes. 

I don't think I have a favorite character in this story, I liked them all and really wish these characters were not fictional but were my friends. 

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

When God Directs a Google Search…
I’m a history lover, but you may have guessed that since I write historical romance stories. 😊 Most of my books are set in the Rocky Mountains during the mid-1800s, but as I began brainstorming ideas for this new series, my heart became drawn earlier to the earlier part of the century—a time period with which I wasn’t quite as familiar with the history.
I love when God orchestrates even the most mundane part of our lives, including Google searches! During one particular search (I can’t even remember what I was originally looking for), I stumbled across part of a journal entry from the Lewis and Clark expedition, which trekked across Montana during the time period I was looking into. I’d forgotten that expedition had even entered the territory that would later become Montana, but now I was fascinated.
After finding an audiobook of the abridged journals of Lewis and Clark, I happily listened to almost 19 hours of fascinating stories from the Corp of Exploration’s journey up the Missouri River and across the mountains to the Pacific Ocean, then back mostly the over the same path they’d come. The stories the men told were so amazing, and the detail of their trials so absorbing, I’ve actually re-listened to the audiobook twice! Many of the true tales wouldn’t be believable in fiction, but as I listened, my mind formed the premise for Freedom in the Mountain Wind: a father/daughter duo who sets out almost two decades after Lewis and Clark’s journey, determined to retrace the steps of that famous expedition.
I hope you enjoy this story as much as I loved writing it! And whether you’re a history lover or not, I pray that you too will be touched by this “epic journey through breathless landscapes and adventure so intense, lives will never be the same.”
