About the Author
Misty M. Beller writes romantic mountain stories, set on the 1800s frontier and woven with the truth of God's love. She was raised on a farm in South Carolina, so her Southern roots run deep. Growing up, her family was close, and they continue to keep that priority today. Her husband and daughters now add another dimension to her life, keeping her both grounded and crazy. God has placed a desire in Misty's heart to combine her love for Christian fiction and the simpler ranch life, writing historical novels that display God's abundant love through the twists and turns in the lives of her characters.

Mary is one tough cookie, let me tell you! She is struggling to survive an excruciatingly hard winter in the Canadian Rockies when Adrien happens upon her half starved, three months pregnant, and totally all alone. None of this stops Mary from doing all she can to keep doing all she must. Mary works SO hard and is SO stubborn it’s exhausting. She’s been on her own for a while and cannot trust that Adrien won’t be taken from her too. Out of a sense of self-preservation, Mary refuses to rely on anyone or anything including God. I like Mary’s character, and I appreciate message the reader can learn through her.
To me, Mary represents us humans when we go at life on our own — when we rely on our own selves, when we do all the work on our own without anyone’s help, when we figure the answers out to our problems with no help from anyone. When Jesus says in Matthew 11:28-30 (ESV), “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” He is thinking about all of us who have enslaved ourselves to the yokes of our own making. Yokes of our own making provide nothing but pain, suffering, and weariness. But Jesus … His yoke brings peace, rest, and provision. Mary eventually learns this lesson, but not before some serious heartache and loneliness.
This Freedom Journey is a lovely novella that I very much enjoyed reading. I do highly recommend this story. It is well written and engaging, and the characters are very realistic. If you are looking for a quick, adventurous, sweet story then This Freedom Journey is definitely the book for you!
I received a review copy of this novel in eBook form from the author via Celebrate Lit. In no way has this influenced my review. The opinions expressed in this review are my own.
Then we have the characters. I'm going to be honest, I didn't like Mary at first. I thought it was silly that she was hiding her pregnancy. Wouldn't Adrien have been able to help her more knowing that? But it was just her nature. Adrien was a stranger, and she had been on her own for months. You can't blame her for being a little leery, I just personally wanted her to spill the beans so to speak. But I quickly overlooked that and started to be amazed at how strong she was. Even after something horrible happening to her, she was still right there with Adrien trying to help survive in whatever way needed. I actually liked the fact that she wasn't immediately drawn to his french charm. Let's face it, if I was alone, stranded, and this handsome man with a french accent came around, I'm pretty sure I would blush and swoon internally right away ;)
In the midst of adventure, Misty Beller easily weaves in the great message that we all need to hear. It is not forced, nor preachy. It is written delicately, yet speaks straight to your heart. The story moves quickly, as is needed with a novella, but it wasn't too fast moving in my opinion. And - get your fans ready girls - the kissing scene in this book is certainly fan worthy! All in all, this is a lovely addition to an already wonderful series. A series that I cannot seem to get enough of!
