Hope in the Mountain River by Misty M. Beller

and the first line is….


“Is he friend or enemy?” Elan’s blood pounded through her veins as it did when the warriors from her tribe struck their targets with tomahawks—blow upon blow, louder and louder with each passing moment.


ABOUT THE BOOK

This epic journey is not at all what she expected.

Joel Vargas can’t believe he’s lost his older brother in the wilds of the Rocky Mountains after surviving their harrowing voyage across the Atlantic. And he can’t shake the feeling that Adam—his only living relative—is in dire trouble. No matter what the cost, he and his band of friends won’t stop until Adam is found. He’s not sure if two Indian women they meet on the way will be a help or hindrance.

After the devastating loss of her daughter and husband to a sickness that swept through their Nez Perce camp, Elan is desperate to find an escape from her grief. As she and her friend journey through the mountains toward the great river, a band of white men is the last thing she expects to find, especially as winter blows in full force.

When the dangers increase, accomplishing Joel’s mission becomes the only hope for all their survival. If the elements don’t consume them, Elan has a feeling life will never be the same for any of them.

From a USA Today bestselling author comes another epic journey through breathless landscapes and intense adventure.

  3. On my blog, I’m sharing Lady at Arms by Tamara Leigh. Here, I will share the first line from Chapter 21 of my current read, Kisses in Keystone by Kari Trumbo. “Hugh pulled his hat low to keep the sun off and shrugged on his black coat. The badge Bullock given him was buried in the bottom of his shaving kit. He hadn’t looked at it in a week.” I wish you a healthy and enjoyable weekend!

    On my blog I’m sharing from Being Known by Robin Jones Gunn. It’s such an EXCELLENT story. Currently, I’m reading Hadley Beckett’s Next Dish by Bethany Turner. I’m just getting into chapter 2 so I’ll share a line from there.
    “Meemaw? Are you home?”
    Hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading! 🙂

  5. My first line comes from Becky Wade’s Stay With Me — Like Papa Bear in the Goldilocks story, Sam Turner had discovered a strange woman sleeping in the bed of a home he owned.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
