When Mountains Move

by Julie Cantrell
David C. Cook

It is the spring of 1943. With a wedding and a cross-country move, Millie’s world is about to change forever.

If only her past could change with it.

Soon after the break of day, Bump will become Millie’s husband. And then, if all goes as planned, they will leave the rain-soaked fields of Mississippi and head for the wilds of the Colorado Rockies. 

As Millie tries to forget a dark secret, she hasn't yet realized how drastically those past experiences will impact the coming days.

For most of Millie’s life, being free felt about as unlikely as the mountains moving. But she’s about to discover that sometimes in life, we are given second chances, and that the only thing bigger than her past … is her future.

My Review:

This story proves that second chances do exist and are completely possible. Millie has absolutely nothing going for her, yet she carries on like a champion. While she cannot change her past, her greatest fear is that if she tells her husband, Kenneth, the truth about her life, he will no longer love and see her the same. 

The themes in this book are about overcoming things we cannot control, loving those who hurt us, making good choices, and forgiving those who do us harm. Forgiveness and love are treasures that we can take with us anywhere, and Cantrell writes with a passion that will draw you into the story, the people, and the pure delight she brings to a page. I loved the portrayal of Millie's marriage to Bump, and the things they have to go through that makes them come out of the fire stronger.  

This book was provided by the publisher for free in exchange for an honest review.
