Micah Bradley has lived alone in the Montana wilderness for 5 years now, ever since smallpox took his wife and daughter. He couldn't save them although he was a doctor. He comes across a wagon accident and finds all dead but one woman, who has a broken femur. He does all he can to save her, but when she asks him to transport the smallpox vaccines her doctor father was taking to a nearby fort, he balks. How could God want him to do such a thing after the loss he's suffered from this disease? He's willing to take the woman to the fort a few weeks' journey away, but this favor she's asked? He is not willing to even think about it. Ingrid Chastain endures horrible pain after Micah sets her leg but can't seem to get him to see the importance of getting the vaccine to the fort, even if it will save many lives. Can she trust God to work on Micah's heart?
Misty Beller begins this book in a powerful way. Her imagery is very strong and evocative to the reader. I was pulled in immediately and my attention never wavered at all during the book. These people endured much during this time of heartache and pain. Prominent in this book is the importance of surrender to God, even when it might mean great pain and even greater heartache. Her characterizations are vivid and her descriptions of the setting are wonderfully done. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Recommended.

ButterflyreviewAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Hope's Highest MountainAugust 25, 2019ButterflyreviewAge: 55-65Gender: femaleIngrid Chastain readily agreed to accompany her father to deliver vaccines to a mining town in the Montana Territory. She never could have anticipated a terrible accident would leave her alone and badly injured in the wilderness. When rescue comes in the form of a mysterious mountain man who tends her injuries, she's hesitant to put her trust in this quiet man who seems to have his own wounds.
Micah Bradley left his work as a doctor after unintentionally bringing home the smallpox disease that killed his wife and daughter. But his self-imposed solitude in the wilds of Montana is broken when he finds Ingrid in desperate need of medical attention, and he's forced to face his regret and call on his doctoring skills once again.
Micah can't help but admire Ingrid's tenacious determination despite the severity of her injuries, until he learns the crate she brought contains smallpox vaccines to help quell a nearby outbreak. With Ingrid dead set on trekking through the mountains to deliver the medicine--with or without his help--he has no choice but to accompany her. As they set off through the treacherous, snow-covered Rocky Mountains against all odds, the journey ahead will change their lives more than they could have known.
Ingrid is left alone with a broken leg and rib in the mountains of Montana after an accident that killed her father. They were on there way to deliver small pox vaccines to a settlement. Micah is running from life and God. He finds her and takes her to his hut. She begs him to help her take the vaccines to the settlement. After finally agreeing, he rigs up a sled to pull her on since she can't walk. They go through all kinds of difficulties getting to the their destination. I encourage you to read the book.
