Publisher's Summary

Joseph Malcom has spent his life protecting those in need, but now that his sister is safely settled with her new family in the Canadian Rockies, his help is no longer required. That is, until he’s asked to safely retrieve the priest’s cousin to help minister to the local Indian tribe. But his passenger is not at all who he expects.

After the death of her mother, Monti Bergeron has nothing to keep her in Montreal. While the prospect of ministering to the Indians out West is daunting, she looks forward to assisting her beloved cousin in his mission work. The life of a nun may be just what she needs to heal her grief, serving her Heavenly Father and fellow mankind, especially if no more pesky suitors are around to ask for her hand in marriage. But the man who’s been sent to guide her through the mountains might make her second-guess her plans before she even begins.

As Monti settles into her ministry, Joseph finds his wandering feet drawn back to the Indian camp. Monti’s focus on God is more unsettling than he’d like to admit. Add to that her beauty which tests his willpower at every turn, and she’s made it crystal clear she doesn’t want a husband. But when his determination to keep distance between them puts Monti in danger, protecting her might require something Joseph might not be able to give.

True emotions, great message loved it.

This is a cute read I had to chuckle when Joseph went to pick up the minister cousin and found out he was a she. I had a blast picturing in my mind the look on his face. Joseph has spent his life helping others giving so much of his self. He had an accident that the author gives such vivid details I felt a chill go up my spine. My mind just doesn’t wrap around what that must have been like, not knowing if you would live, deciding if you should cut off a body part. He lost his faith in God that day and just hasn’t been able to find it. This is a very emotional and spiritual read that really touched my heart. Monti words keep going through my mind be the man God made you to be not what you think you should be. No truer words have been written. It’s a story about looking past your disabilities or the ones you think you have learning to accept who you are, knowing you are no less of a person no matter what you have been though. The story is built around lost in so many ways, to finding yourself, there is danger, excitement, romance, and so much more. Ms. Woodworth’s narration with her soft sweet voice really brought this story to life. She made me feel each lose, sorrow and pain. Her character voices are outstanding her female so soft but strong, her male strong but weak, both caring and loving. You can hear the pain, sorrow, anger, hurt along with excitement, danger and thrills. I had no trouble picturing the events as they unfold. This was one audio she held me in the palm of her hand with true emotion that each character was going through. I was so invested I forgot I was listening and found things to do around the house to listen longer. Her tones are right on the mark keeping the listener on the edge as danger gets near. It was a thrilling, exciting listen. The danger is real, I felt like I was there with the characters. There are no volume changes, no background noise or any repeating of words. If any breaks were taken I could not tell. I had no trouble knowing who is talking and what they are feeling. Her character voices are just great as well as her normal voice is very pleasant and easy to listen to. You can feel the uneasiness of the characters as they work through the emotions of loss, facing the outcome and the heart break of the past. Ms. Woodworth’s has no trouble pulling of this very emotional listen that captivates you and holds your attention. So far out of this series this one is my favorite. I think the author out did herself giving a very powerful message along with a very detailed story that kept me very entertained. There was a time or two when I think my heart stopped beating for a minute and others where I smiled and even wanted to cry at the true emotion that was written. This is so much more than a romance it is about faith, overcoming issues and finding what you want out of life and going for it. I loved the characters, how the story is laid out and the true meaning behind it. From start to finish I was hooked can't wait for the next one.

Excellent Reader!

The narrator did a great job with creating individual voices. This is a good series describing the 19th century Canadian Rockies.

Courage

Moni wanting to join a cousin and minister to the Indians in the Canadian mountains. It seems overwhelming to do, tired of the men asking for hand in marriage. Setting out to be that as a nun, until the guide that will lead her to the camp might change her mind. A good adventure and not for the light hearted.woman, for one of courage to travel this far. Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Danger and romance abound in the rugged wilderness

I was a bit surprised by This Wilderness Journey because I think I liked it quite a bit more than the first book in the Heart Of The Mountains series from Misty M. Beller. The adventure and romance is good and I liked the characters, especially Monti, whose full first name is quite an unusual mouthful. I listened to the audiobook version of the book. The sound and production quality were good. The narrator's voice is one of those that you can listen to for hours, it's pleasant and fairly soft-spoken which is perfect for a nearly 6 hour audiobook. She also narrated the first book in the series and I appreciate that continuity between productions. This Wilderness Journey by Misty M. Beller was an enjoyable listen and one I would recommend if you like historical romance in general. The audiobook was easy to listen to and keeps the mind busy while the hands are occupied with the mundane. (I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher. All opinions are entirely my own.)

Engaging Plot and Interesting Characters

Monte’s journey to the wildness, finding protection and love is a simple plot but there’s enough danger and spiritual growth to keep it interesting. The narrator’ voice on all except Monte’s. Her French accent kept the book from being a five star.

Another great love story by Misty Beller

Misty Bella is one of those authors that all you have to do is see her name and know it will be great. She has many books and I have yet to find two that was similar. The theme may be the same , but the plots are totally different and original. Not to mention the narration on this book in particular was awesome she did a great job with Marty’s French accent and the accent of the natives. This is a great historical romance in one I will read again.

Love, love, love!

I was tickled to meet the cousin! And I loved the French accent Leonor, the narrator used. I don’t speak French, but it sounded realistic to me. This was definitely an incredible wilderness journey, but the walk of faith was the best part of the book. I can’t wait to listen to another book in this series!! Misty has definitely left a great impression on me!
