I've read books that I could relate to the character(s), but reading about Mikayla in this book was like meeting a kindred spirit. Her independent nature was so endearing. I loved that she wasn't the average girl. I loved Dawson's heart and patience in a dealing with the people around him. His heart for all he loved and believed in was inspiring.
The characters came to the knowledge of God in their different and unique ways. Each of them had their own "God prod" which was beautifully presented and very relatable. I love how God worked behind the scenes. All things work together for good to those that love God found complete expression in this book for me.
In When Mountains Sing, Stacy Monson beautifully tells the story of Mikayla Gordon's journey to find the truth about who she is. This emotionally raw story is filled with relatable characters, including Mikayla's beloved adventurous father, her adorable guard dog, Lula, and many gracious people who bring hope to her hurting heart. Set in the majestic Rocky Mountains, Monson captures the beauty of God's creation and the peace found only in Him. I highly recommend joining Mikayla on her quest for truth by reading When Mountains Sing.

Mikayla's courage and bravery in the face of so many unknowns inspire me to cherish more deeply the family God has given me. Monson writes with excellence and tenderness as she weaves Biblical principles into the hearts of her characters, and I am all the better for it. With characters so complex and dialogue so convincing I was often surprised to find myself still on my own couch (I far prefer the Rockies!). Another exceptional story!

From the Author
Every day you are bombarded with messages telling you what you need to do/say/think in order to be acceptable. If you wear certain clothes, look a certain way, drink certain beverages, and believe certain things, you'll be part of the "in" crowd. The problem with that thinking is that it changes, and you're expected to change with it. It's an exhausting way to live, don't you think?
Instead of focusing on the shifting opinions and standards of the world around you, my prayer is that you'll discover you are truly loved simply because you're you. There's no need to try to measure up--you already do! Jesus Christ willingly went to the cross for you because He loves you. It doesn't matter what anyone else says about you. The cross says it all.
You are the beloved of God, and my sister-in-Christ.

I Couldn't Stop Reading, once I started. I Highly Recommend You Get this Masterpiece!! 💖📓📖💖
However, I could barely stand reading about the heroine’s continual immature reactions to people around her. She is jealous for what others have, extremely judgmental, constantly competitive to prove she is better than everyone, and thinks that mistakes define a person for the rest of his or her life. She is supposedly 30 years old, not a teenager, though she kept acting like one. At one point she thinks her mom is having a heart attack, but she takes time out for another long discussion about all her problems instead of rushing to help her mother. At the end she finally relents and stops her tantrum against her parents, but it is so sudden and unexpected that I couldn’t really believe her.
This is the first novel that I've read by Stacy Monson and wow what an introduction! How she is able to flesh out her characters with such depth and put the reader on that mountain with stunning imagery is a pure talent. I am a sucker for a good ending and characters that I personally connect with and When Mountains Sing delivers. Though there is predictability in parts as a whole it is utter perfection, leaving me reading the last page with goosebumps and genuinely sad to see this incredible novel come it its conclusion.
A truly captivating, faith-filled novel that was motivational and inspirational, When Mountains Sings was truly a joy and honor to read.
Mikayla and the other characters in When Mountains Sing are real and the story is compelling. I smiled, laughed, cried, and left the story wanting more. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
The author has outdone herself with this book - it's a new favorite.
Mikayla Gordon was always so different from her mother and sisters, but she never doubted that she was part of the family, that is until a health issue alerts her that her gene pool might be different than she thought. Her quest to find her real roots leads her to a place that tugs at her heart, and to a man who seems to understand her like no one ever has. His strong faith in God gives Mikayla a reason to believe, and she soon finds that God and nature can give her the strength she needs to see things through.
The characters are likable and relatable and the story flows effortlessly. I have read other books by this author and her talent is writing smooth easy reads that are enjoyable and uplifting. I strongly recommend this book and anything else by this author!

Mikayla Gordon, a fearless outdoors enthusiast and ambitious magazine writer stands to lose it all when a fluke health crisis leads her to investigate her family history. She discovers that DNA testing, so popular and eagerly sought out these days, has a down-side. Panicked and confused by the unexpected results, she heads west to the Colorado Rockies seeking out the father she never knew. Her anger and sense of betrayal at discovering the secret grow as she faces one setback after another on her quest. Issues of trust and identity are skillfully explored in this not-so-light novel. There’s a welcome hint of romance, and just like real-life, not everything is wrapped up by the end, allowing readers to take the characters with them after they close its pages.
I particularly like a book with substance, and this one doesn’t shy away from questions of forgiveness, of meaning and of God’s purposes in suffering, making for a thought-provoking read.
Mikayla Gordon has always known who she is: an outdoorsy woman who prefers hiking and fishing to anything girlie. Although these interests have not helped her to fit in, she has maintained a strong determination to follow her dreams.
Then a long-hidden truth reveals that she has no idea who she is, that everything she believed about herself and her family is false. She is on the verge of losing it all, but instead of giving up, she sets out to find answers.
Running away from the present, looking for truth from the past, Mikayla ends up at an outdoor camp in the Rocky Mountains, and for once in her life, she fits in. When she listens carefully, she can hear the mountains sing.
On the journey to find her identity, Mikayla discovers many things about herself and others, besides facts that bring more pain. Can this mosaic of revelations work together to bring her closure and peace? She can’t remain hidden in this haven forever, especially with her twin sister’s wedding coming up. And what will she do with her strong attraction to Dawson Dunne?
What I liked most about this story is the theme that “Blood isn’t the only thing that makes a family.” (Location 857) “…family means working together toward a common goal, depending on each other, sharing daily life.” (Location 1416) Can this be true for Mikayla and her family? And what of the faith in God she sees all around her at the outdoor camp?
I found the characters strong and individual, each clearly delineated and purposed through theme and plot. The intensity of this story is eased somewhat by the presence of Lula, a small but mighty Chihuahua/Papillon puppy who joins Mikayla on her journey and brings joy into the chaos.
The tale moves along quickly, and it’s almost impossible to put down. The writing is tight and strong, pulling all the necessary elements together a weaving them into a memorable tapestry. This is the first book I’ve read by Stacy Monson, but I will be looking for more.
