Publisher's Description

When mountain guide Micah Gallagher is hired by the spirited Hanna Alexander to help raise revenues for her failing family lodge, a high-country adventure filled with love, intrigue, and romance ensues. Almost immediately, Hanna betrays her own professional reservations and finds herself enamored by the mystery of Micah's carefully guarded past. When the two unexpectedly fall in love, Micah is forced to face the hidden places that haunt him, and Hanna must address her fears and determine if forgiveness can make way for love. Teeming with suspicion and intrigue, this Grand Teton adventure leaves the reader struggling with the Christian response of forgiveness in the midst of emotional entanglements, fears of the heart, and the inevitable agony of love.

Has fate brought the two together, or will circumstances tear them apart? What are the secrets that Micah guards so closely? Will love and forgiveness conquer the entanglements of their past and make way for a future together?

    Disappointing and disrespectful to its locale

    I was looking forward to this book, as I love Jackson Hole and the Tetons and the plot sounded intriguing. I'm left with a vague sense of disbelief that I paid money for it. While I appreciated the plot twist at the end, for the most part it was slow and predictable. The romance was fun, but, again, predictable. The unforgivable, glaring flaw, though, was the blatant disregard to the locale. I had to wonder if the author had even been to Jackson Hole, or was just throwing out a real place name found on a map every once in a while to try to make it sound authentic. Simple things that would have been easily found out by paying a little respect to the area... For example, there are no oak, birch, or willow trees anywhere near the Tetons. There are willow bushes, but the only non evergreen trees in those mountains are aspen and cottonwoods. There are no crickets or cicadas or any other insects that make noise at night. There are no rapids on the Snake River anywhere near Pacific Creek, and the water of the river is about 50 degrees all summer long. After about 15 minutes in the water, hypothermia sets in. There was no mention of securing the campsites against bear visits, which would have been the number one concern. Just a few things from a book that seems to completely disregard the area it's set in. If you're going to write about a real place, please do a little research.

    Bought and started reading this book on a Saturday night. Continued reading it after church the next morning and finished it by that evening! I couldn't put it down! One of the best books I've read in a while. I will definitely be reading more of Denise Hunter's books.

    Mending Places interested me from the beginning. I read the back cover and wanted to see how the author worked through the conflict. It was a bit slow to start (for me,) but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. The conflict with her sister's marriage was realistic and gut-wrenching, and I wish it had turned out with a happier ending, but hey, that's not reality. In regards to Hanna, I liked the way the author brought everything to a climax toward the ending. I felt Micah's pain as well as Hanna's. It is a wonderful story of forgiveness. Though it may seem unrealistic to some, I've known people in weirder situations. I liked the redemption piece and felt like the author handled the resolution beautifully. I also liked the passion and edgy feel to the story. Kudos!

Author/Artist Review

Author: Denise Hunter
Located in: Indiana
Submitted: April 20, 2004

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Besides than writing books, I'm a stay-at-home mom of three boys ages 5, 8 and 11. I did insist on a female dog, though. My husband claims he provides me with all my romantic material, but a good imagination helps too!

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I have a heart for women who've been wounded, whether by abuse, rape, adultery or something else. Mending Places tackles some of these topics head-on and deals with the aftermath of being hurt by someone else: How can I forgive this person? It's a story about forgiving the unforgivable.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope readers find that Mending Places is a book of hope. Forgiveness isn't about letting someone off the hook. It's about freeing yourself of the weight you're carrying. It's not always easy, and sometimes it's a long process, but I hope readers see that God can help them do it.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I'm an avid reader of Christian fiction, so I have a lot of favorite authors. For women's fiction I love Karen Kingsbury and Kristen Heitzman. For romantic suspense I pick up Dee Henderson or Colleen Coble. And when I need a laugh, I turn to Kristin Billerbeck.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Mending Places is a story that perked in my mind for a full year before I sat down to write it. I was afraid the topic was too intense, too edgy for the Christian market. But the story wouldn't let me go, so I gave in and wrote it.
