About the Book
Book: Hope’s Highest Mountain
Author: Misty M. Beller
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: October, 2019
When Ingrid Chastain agreed to accompany her father to deliver vaccines to a mining town in the Montana Territory, she never could have anticipated a terrible accident would leave her alone and badly injured in the wilderness. Rescue comes in the form of a mysterious mountain man who tends her injuries, but she’s hesitant to put her trust in this man who seems to have wounds of his own.
After tragedy struck his family, Micah Bradley left his work as a doctor and escaped to the wilds of Montana. But his self-imposed solitude is broken when he finds Ingrid in desperate need of medical attention, and he’s forced to call on his doctoring skills once again.
Micah can’t help but admire Ingrid’s tenacity despite the severity of her injuries, until he learns the crate she brought contains smallpox vaccines to help quell a nearby outbreak. With Ingrid dead set on delivering the medicine–with or without his help–he has no choice but to accompany her. As they set off through the treacherous, snow-covered Rocky Mountains against all odds, the journey ahead will change their lives more than they could have known.

I am thoroughly convinced that author Beller is the Queen of writing rugged, against all odds wilderness and mountain adventures through any and all kinds of weather. If you have ever read one of her novels you know what I am talking about.
This one started with a doozy of an opening and I must say that the fortitude and courage of these people really is beyond what I can understand or would want to deal with myself. I know they are fictional, but like the pioneers and those that lived in the past with out all the electronics, electricity, cars, planes, central heating that we have today, how did they do it? My only conclusion is that we have become much too reliant on modern day conveniences while the past folks forged their way through mountains and desert and relied on their own ingenuity.
Ingrid Chastain is helping her father to deliver small pox vaccines to a small town before the population is wiped out. Before they make it to their destination the unthinkable happens. The before and the after of Ingrid's journey now looks very different. Now she is very reliant on a once doctor now turned mountain man to not only help her save the townspeople, but also to save her.
There was a lot of natural drama in this story line and I wondered how these two were going to get out of their circumstances when so much was stacked against them from the get go. But you'll have to read the story for yourself and go on this very dangerous and courageous journey with them.
I was provided a copy of this novel from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

More from Misty
Remember Lassie? Old Yeller? Chance and Shadow from the movie Homeward Bound? There was something about these dogs that gripped my heartstrings and made me love them as though I’d known them for years. (And, yes, I cried during every one of these movies and books.)
Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had real dogs I’ve loved too. As far back as I can remember, we’ve had at least one or two dogs, and each one has been my very best friend. They’ve suffered my undying love, even allowing me to dress them up like dolls during my younger years.
But the dogs in my stories have a special place in my heart. Handsome, the sweet little black fluffball in Hope’s Highest Mountain is no exception! He was the runt of the litter, and such a dark black that the story’s hero nicknamed him Shadow. You can see the picture that inspired Handsome at the book’s Pinterest page. Those eyes! Hard not to fall in love, right?
The more I wrote in the story, the more I enjoyed getting to know this little guy, and I could almost feel his soft puppy fur as he snuggled in close. I completely see why Ingrid (the heroine) is smitten him! As you read Hope’s Highest Mountain, I hope you love Handsome as much as I do. Please give him some extra petting for me! ?
