I went on a hallowing adventure in the 1800s through Hope’s Highest Mountain. Ingrid along with her father and two others experienced a wagon crash while traveling to Settlers Fort. Ingrid was the only survivor and was found near death by a mountain man, Micah. With a broken leg and ribs, Micah struggles to rescue her and help get her on the road to healing. Her only thought is to get the vials of life saving medicine to the doctor in Settlers Fort.
Traveling on foot, dragging Ingrid in a “sling” he tries to fulfill her request. Through mountains, snow and winter weather they struggle with little food and near frostbite conditions. They pick up a small boy and his mother after her husband passes away. So on they go, day after day, week after week. If obstacles could hinder their travels it happens to this group in spite of all their prayers.
I admired the strength and fortitude in everyone of these characters. I even found myself praying for them as I read. Now that’s realism in the best of books! Grab a blanket, a hot cup of coffee and settle in for a great read that will leave you admiring the strength of the travelers during this time period of American history.
