About the Book

Light-in-the-Mountain-Sky-1-685x1024Book: Light in the Mountain Sky
Author: Misty M. Beller
Genre: Christian Historical Romance
Release Date: September 29 , 2020
Synopsis: This epic journey may seal her fate forever. Determined to prove her worth, Meksem fiercely fought to earn her place among the warriors in her Nez Perce camp. When her half-sister is captured by an enemy tribe, she refuses to trust the rescue to anyone else. But her new friends insist on joining her mission, and she battles between relief and frustration at their presence. Especially the white man who peers at her as if he can see through the face of the warrior she struggles so hard to maintain. Spaniard Adam Vargas thrives on adventure wherever his travels take him. He’s fallen in love with this Rocky Mountain wilderness, as well as the spotted horses the Nez Perce tribe raise. His fascination with this Indian maiden-turned-warrior catches him off guard though, including the way she seems to be fighting for more than her sister’s safe return. The journey proves more perilous than any of the group expects, and the secret Meksem hides becomes impossible to conceal. If they live through this mission, the life they knew will never be the same again. From a USA Today bestselling author comes another epic journey through breathless landscapes and intense adventure.

My Thoughts

This book… Wow. Light in the Mountain Sky exceeded all my expectations. I have been looking forward to finding out what happened to Adam since book one 😊. Misty M. Beller did a great job describing what life was like in the mountains and about the Native American’s lifestyles. Leaving me breathless and wanting to be right there with the characters. I enjoyed the interactions between Adam and Meksem, as it was interesting to see their thought processes and how they overcame the (somewhat) of a language barrier.

I also really enjoyed the adventures and action pace this story had. It was quickly apparent what had happened in the previous story and how it interacted with this one. I also thought that it was very well laid out in terms of the action being spread out and not all at one time. Its one thing I appreciate about Misty M. Beller’s writing style, her sense of adventure, imagination inspiring descriptions, and her use of some beautiful horses.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars for the fun adventure, getting to see some other characters, and for making me anticipate the next book!

*I volunteered to read this book in return for my honest feedback. The thoughts and opinions expressed within are my own.

More from Misty

Early Nez Perce Business Women   As I’ve been researching for my current Call of the Rockies series, I’ve had the pleasure of diving deep into the culture of the Nez Perce tribe. I found it interesting that one of the primary food sources of The People (as they called themselves) was camas roots. But what really drew my notice was how the women would cultivate entire fields of camas root, store what they needed for their family through the winter, then use the extras for bartering. Some savvy women would become quite wealthy from their business dealings! Picture1 (2)The bulbs of the camas plant are full of calories and nutrients, and each fall, Nez Perce families would travel to their particular camas meadow (a section of land whose camas rights had probably been passed down from generation to generation within their family). Many of these meadows were located near present-day Weippe, Moscow or Grangeville, where the onion-shaped bulbs grew thickly. Picture2Women used pointed wooden tools to harvest the bulbs, and could often gather over 50 pounds a day, satisfying their full winter’s supply within just a few days. Native American peoples who ate camas include the Nez Perce (Nimíipuu), Cree, Coast Salish, Kalapuya, and Blackfoot, and Yakama, among many others. Not all of these people groups harvested camas themselves. Instead, many relied on trade in order to procure it. Trade networks were established all the way from the Rockies to the Pacific Ocean, and a shrewd businesswoman who tended her camas meadows well could provide everything her family needed and more!
