Her quest to repair what’s been broken leads to imminent danger–and soon it’s more than her own life on the line.

After accidentally destroying the intricate chalice her people have treasured for over a hundred years, Charlotte Durand sets out on an expedition in search of a skilled artisan who can repair the damage. What she expected to be a two-day hike becomes much more daunting when a treacherous snowstorm sets in.

The last thing Damien Levette needs in the middle of a mountain blizzard is to tend to another person, but he can’t leave behind the mysterious woman he found half-frozen at the edge of a mountain lake.

As they battle both the elements and each other, Charlotte and Damien must work together to survive the peril of the mountains—or it could be the downfall of them both.

My Review

Beller, Misty M. A Daughter’s Courage. Minneapolis, MN: Bethany House, 2022.

I love stories about the Old West – not the Wild West but about the time when western North America was being explored and settled. Misty M. Beller always writes such enjoyable stories about this time period.

Themes in A Daughter’s Courage include: mistakes happen, forgiveness, trust and being truthful. There are lessons for all of us about what can happen if we hide the truth or aren’t forthcoming about our plans. 

A Daughter’s Courage is the third book in Beller’s Brides of Laurent series. This story is just as enjoyable as the other books in the series have been. I don’t think you necessarily have to read the books in order, although you will miss some information if you don’t. 

One of the things I enjoy about Beller’s books is that there is just enough tension to keep the plot moving forward but not so much as to cause much stress for the reader. 

A Daughter’s Courage, while written for the adult audience, is appropriate for a K-12 Christian school library. I think middle schoolers and up will enjoy it. 

I received a complimentary copy of A Daughter’s Courage. This is my honest review.

Behind the Scenes of A Daughter’s Courage

I always love stories where the characters are on a journey, and I knew that’s exactly what the characters in this book would be doing. Our heroine, Charlotte, is the younger sister of the heroine in book 1 of this series, and we’ve gotten to know her a little better with each book. Her mother died when she was young, and she’s been the homemaker for their little family for over a decade now, never straying farther from the village than the berry patches in the next valley over. So I knew it would take something big to get her away from Laurent for the journey I had in mind for this story. Something lifechanging.

Our hero is a trapper who left the larger group he’d been traveling with to strike out on his own. I knew it would take a considerable amount of tragedy to make a man seek such complete aloneness. Damien has his trusty mule Gulliver with him, so I guess he’s not completely alone, but he’s definitely hoping to stay far away from people. As I uncovered the pain that brought him to this point, my heart broke for him and all the loss he experienced.

I love the way Charlotte’s need and the fierce mountain snowstorm drew Damien from his grief and gave him new purpose. Watching him come back to life and grasp onto God’s love for him was so inspiring!

Blessings!

Misty
