About the book:
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.
I liked this book so much! Millie was a resilient character and at times I forgot just how young she was. As she and her husband Bump start off married life with both a move and the very daunting task of making their ranch/home livable, they faced so many challenges.
I liked them separately and I loved them together. Millie’s grandmother quickly became a favorite of mine, too.
Their story Is beautifully written. I was compelled to keep reading. This is only the second book that I’ve read by Julie Cantrell and I find her to a pretty amazing author which makes me want to read more of her work.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and have given my honest opinion.
