Faith in the Mtn Valley

This epic journey is the only way to leave her secrets behind.

After eleven years spent looking for the girl who stole his heart, Jean-Jacques Baptiste—better known as French to his friends—is tempted to give up. Until the day he spotted the flaxen-haired stranger traveling the wooded path with Blackfoot Indians. He never imagined he’d find his childhood friend masquerading as a man in this Rocky Mountain wilderness, hundreds of miles from the Canadian town where he last saw her. No matter her reasons, he can’t let her go this time.

Colette Mignon’s life has become a cacophony of lies, including the fact that her Blackfoot Indian companions believe she’s a man. She’s willing to live the taxing life of a trapper in these desolate mountains as long as it keeps her secrets hidden. When her childhood friend and first love discovers her, his determination to help might put everything at risk.

As the worst of her past threatens to catch up with her, the hope for Colette’s new life shatters. But no matter what, she must protect the one good thing that came from all her mistakes. Though French is determined to stay at her side, she can’t let him become entangled in the perilous consequences of her actions. If only it wasn’t so painful to push him away. The danger pressing in may leave her only one choice—leave everything behind…again.

From a USA Today bestselling author comes another epic journey through breathless landscapes and adventure so intense, lives will never be the same.

My Thoughts

Faith in the Mountain Valley by Misty M. Beller is book five in the Call of the Rockies series. This novel follows French as he searches for his childhood friend and long-lost love, Colette. But Colette is doing her best not to be found by anyone, especially the men hunting her. 

The Call of the Rockies series has been one epic adventure after another. But with each new story, we get a deeper insight into one of the characters, and I was excited to finally get to know French beyond the tall tales he shared around the fire. 

French (Jean-Jacques) and Colette”s friendship/love started when they were children struggling to find peace and happiness outside of their turbulent homes. Their history together is sweet, yet carries its own pain and hardship. I loved how a teasing smile or simple gesture can bring back past moments together. It’s why I love second-chance romance. The characters automatically have a stronger connection from the start. And French’s determination to find Colette after many years of separation will pull your heartstrings. He was completely dedicated to her even after so many years. It was a lovely surprise to find such a tender-hearted man behind all those wild stories.

This story is a page-turner. Danger, secrets, high stakes, and the challenges of surviving in the wild make you keep reading one more chapter. I could not rest until I knew what became of French and Colette.

And even though most of the crew from the beginning of this book series didn’t make much of an appearance in French’s story, I loved it just the same. The Blackfoot men Colette was traveling with were honorable and interesting, and I really enjoyed learning about the simple tasks the trappers completed each day. 

Overall, I loved French and Colette’s story. Fans of Christian historical fiction will enjoy this story, especially those who love a good adventure out west.

I was given a copy of this book by Celebrate Lit with no expectation of a positive review. All opinions are my own.

More from Misty

Ever Played Dress-up?

I’ll bet most of us played “Let’s Pretend” when we were kids. Maybe you dressed up as a princess, or a knight, or a soldier. When we were little, my grandmother had a secondhand wedding dress she let us play with. It had the long train and veil that dragged several feet behind a grown woman. We spent so many fun hours dressing up and pretending. And of course, there were all the times my older brother and I played cowboys as we rode our horses.

With so much experience playing dress-up and “let’s pretend,” I thoroughly enjoyed writing the story of a heroine who pretended to be a man! And not just a fellow around town. She joined up with a group of five Blackfoot braves and attempted to pass herself off as a man for weeks while she lived in their camp, trapping alongside them!

She had a good reason for attempting the ruse, and you can find out if she pulls it off in Faith in the Mountain Valley. This might be my favorite of all the books in the Call of the Rockies series. I pray you enjoy it too!
