Faith's Mountain Home | Book Review, Guest Post + Giveaway


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?

Venture to Montana with Misty M. Beller’s Faith’s Mountain Home!

In the aftermath of the events of Love’s Mountain Quest, Laura Hannon must decide if there is room in her future for Nate Long. She understands that his newfound faith has changed him, but she still has a hard time ignoring the poor choices of his past. Of course, circumstances continue to present her with opportunities to see his true character—and growing feelings quickly become hard to deny.

I could not help being interested to see how Laura’s story would go after reading the second Hearts of Montana book. I am glad that it makes a sweet addition to the series with solid characters, faith, and romance. Page after page proved to be a nice adventure, transporting me to a picturesque Montana setting for a bit, and I enjoyed it.

If you have liked reading this series from Beller, definitely pick up Faith’s Mountain Home.


I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.


Misty M. Beller is a USA Today bestselling author of romantic mountain stories, set on the 1800s frontier and woven with the truth of God’s love.

She was raised on a farm in South Carolina, so her Southern roots run deep. Growing up, her family was close, and they continue to keep that priority today. Her husband and children now add another dimension to her life, keeping her both grounded and crazy.

God has placed a desire in Misty’s heart to combine her love for Christian fiction and the simpler ranch life, writing historical novels that display God’s abundant love through the twists and turns in the lives of her characters.


Who doesn’t love a good cave?

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.
The good news is, you can enjoy the story without actually entering the pitch black cavern!

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.


To celebrate her tour, Misty is giving away the grand prize package of the entire Hearts of Montana series, plus a “Faith Moves Mountain” sign (see here: https://etsy.me/2JjZAVV). Enter below, and be sure to comment on the blog stops for nine extra entries into the giveaway.



  1. I lived near Mammoth Cave when I was growing up and have toured it a few times. I would never go in just to explore, though! It shocks me that so many people will go into a cave without knowing how deep/closed off it is. I could never!

  2. I really enjoyed Hope's Highest Mountain. I need to catch up with this series. Nice review Hallie.
