When Mountains Move
After reading The Feathered Bone by Julie Cantrell and being absolutely blown away by it, I knew I wanted to read her upcoming two-book series as soon as possible. When Mountains Move is the continuation of the story that began in Into The Free. We continue following Millie's story as she marries Bump Anderson. The book description reads:
"In a few hours, Millie will say “I do” to Bump Anderson, a man who loves her through and through. But would he love her if he knew the secret she keeps?
Millie’s mind is racing and there seems to be no clear line between right and wrong. Either path leads to pain, and she’ll do anything to protect the ones she loves. So she decides to bury the truth and begin again, helping Bump launch a ranch in the wilds of Colorado. But just when she thinks she’s left her old Mississippi life behind, the facts surface in the most challenging way.
That’s when Millie’s grandmother, Oka, arrives to help. Relying on her age-old Choctaw traditions, Oka teaches Millie the power of second chances. Millie resists, believing redemption is about as likely as moving mountains. But Oka stands strong, modeling forgiveness as the only true path to freedom.
Together, Bump, Millie, and Oka fight against all odds to create a sustainable ranch, all while learning that the important lessons of their pasts can be used to build a beautiful future."
I was definitely not disappointed by When Mountains Move. I was excited to catch up with Millie and find out what happens to her next. I couldn't put the book down and it kept me turning the pages long into the night. This series is a bit of a unique and almost odd story, set in during the Depression. I love books set in this era, but this book was very different than most Depression-era tales. This powerful novel has a lot to say and will linger in your mind after you finish reading it. I highly recommend this novel to anyone looking for a deeper type of novel. Definitely read Into The Free first, though, as it tells the beginning of Millie's tale.
I received a copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
