This is the first full length novel I have read by this author. I read a novella about a year ago.
A spiritually hurting former doctor, Micah Bradley, comes upon a badly injured Ingrid Chastain. Together they forge ahead on their mission. Micah is struck by Ingrid’s strength and resilience. Ingrid tells him: “Relying on God fills me with an inner strength much greater than I could possess on my own.” Can she help heal the inner turmoil of this broken man?
This story is wonderfully picturesque and full of God’s majestic beauty of the mountains. There is hope portrayed in the struggle to battle the elements and fulfill a promise.

Back Cover Blurb:
Ingrid Chastain readily agreed to accompany her father to deliver vaccines to a mining town in the Montana Territory. She never could have anticipated a terrible accident would leave her alone and badly injured in the wilderness. When rescue comes in the form of a mysterious mountain man who tends her injuries, she's hesitant to put her trust in this quiet man who seems to have his own wounds.
Micah Bradley left his work as a doctor after unintentionally bringing home the smallpox disease that killed his wife and daughter. But his self-imposed solitude in the wilds of Montana is broken when he finds Ingrid in desperate need of medical attention, and he's forced to face his regret and call on his doctoring skills once again.
Micah can't help but admire Ingrid's tenacious determination despite the severity of her injuries, until he learns the crate she brought contains smallpox vaccines to help quell a nearby outbreak. With Ingrid dead set on trekking through the mountains to deliver the medicine--with or without his help--he has no choice but to accompany her. As they set off through the treacherous, snow-covered Rocky Mountains against all odds, the journey ahead will change their lives more than they could have known.
