About the Book
Author: Misty M. Beller
Genre: Christian historical romance
Nate Long has always watched over his identical twin brother, Aaron, even when it put him on the wrong side of the law. When Aaron is wounded in a shootout, the brothers are taken to Settler’s Fort to recover. As Nate works to make reparations for their past, he marvels at the nursing Aaron receives under the care of a woman with all the reason in the world to resent him.
Laura Hannon knows what it is to start over, and she knows Nate’s newfound faith is real. What she can’t look past is how far he allowed himself to be led astray by his brother’s weaknesses.
As a fledgling trust grows between Nate and Laura, they stumble upon a mysterious cave in the mountains that may not be as uninhabited as it seems.
As they work together for a common cause, will the new lives they seek for themselves include love, or is there too much that stands between them?

Coming off the heels of the kidnapping that took place in the previous book, Laura Hannon is trying to regain her sense of safety along with a sense of purpose she hasn't had for a very long time. Feeling very guilty for shooting the wrong man, even though he also helped perpetrate in the kidnapping, especially since he may never walk again.
Nate Long loves and has stuck with his twin brother Aaron since birth. Even when he wanted to get out of the gang and Aaron wanted to stay in. That bespoke of loyalty. Now that the gang has been brought to justice, Nate is thankful that he and Aaron have been shown mercy by those they harmed. Aaron is in the most pain after having his leg shattered but Nate is trying to work to pay back the debt he owes to those they harmed. In the meantime he is falling for Laura, the one Aaron helped kidnapped.
The atmospheric scenery of the mountains and the cave that has so mesmerized Laura and Nate really pull you into the story. Add in a few surprising characters and everyone's world begins to change. Nothing seems to ever go right for them and they are also carrying a lot from their pasts as well. These two might have been the most accident prone couple in any books I have read before. I think it gave them an endearing quality, their issues were certainly not with pride.
I liked revisiting this town and getting closure for Laura, Nate, and Aaron.
I was provided a copy of this novel from the publisher. I was not required to give a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

Well, maybe not everyone, but I have to confess, I love exploring!
While there aren’t many caves near my South Carolina home, I’ve always loved the idea of finding an opening hidden in the rocks. Then venturing in and finding a huge cavern filled with stalactites and stalagmites and a host of other beauties I can’t pronounce!
And dark tunnels? As long as I have a light and a string to unravel as I go so I can get back out, I’m game!
Unfortunately, I’ve never found a large cave in real life that had never been explored, but in Faith’s Mountain Home, Nate and Laura found exactly that! Although…turns out, it had been discovered by someone already. I won’t give you (too many) spoilers, but let me just tell you there’s a precocious Native American girl involved, and a few other things not so delightful.
Last summer, I had the opportunity to tour a cave with many features like Nate and Laura discovered in their hidden cave. The Caverns of Sonora in Sonora, Texas was a fantastic experience! As you can imagine, it’s hard to get good pictures in solid darkness, but here are a few of the amazing formations still growing in those two miles of underground tunnels.
