The Lady and the Mountain Man by Misty M. Beller

My review today is on the book, The Lady and the Mountain Man. This is book one in the Mountain Dreams Series. I'm not sure if I have ever read any of Misty's books but I really enjoyed this one. I like mail order bride stories and I really like mountain men so this was a great read for me. This book is well written, heart warming, and at times very humorous, I know you will enjoy it.

Heiress Leah Townsend over hears her fiancĂ©e's plot to kill her once their wedding take place as he had done with his first wife. He finds her outside he door and threatens her. Leah and Emily, her companion figure out a way for her to escape. Emily helps her pack. On her journey Leah finds a newspaper in her bag with an ad for a mail order bride in Montana. Leah is drawn to a rugged man on the train and on the ferry but ignores the feeling because of the mess she is already in.. When she arrives at St. Louis she tries to find work but discovered she has been followed. She send a telegram to the mail order bride ad saying she is coming. Upon landing in Montana she finds she has been robbed. A kindly old freighter  offers to take her to Abel Bryant. She arrives only to find out that he had been killed.

Gideon Bryant went out East to settle the estate of his diseased wife. As he returns home to Montana he is drawn to a beautiful city girl on the train and the ferry but refuses to act on it. He had married one city woman and that hadn't worked out, he wasn't about to make that mistake again.

A journey of two broken souls trying to survive the hardships of the Montana territory. God has a plan for these two and it's much greater than either of them had imagined. God is like that! He always has a plan and when we allow Him to take control we are amazed at what He does.
