After a rough winter spent alone, Ursula Nordegren realizes she must overcome her fears of the outside world and begins a trek down Hope Mountain. Along the way she finds a badly wounded stranger and realizes God may have used her decision to leave as a way of saving the man.
Wax Mosby was climbing Hope Mountain in part to atone for his terrible choices. He was hired to drive out the Warden family and now knows he was duped. But when he’s wounded during the climb, the last person he expects to rescue him is a beautiful blond woman with the voice of an angel.
As both Ursula and Wax weigh the costs of living new lives, the two find an unlikely bond. And they’re joined by Ursula’s sisters and the Warden family as the final showdown over the family ranch looms with the coming of spring.
A thrilling and satisfying conclusion to the story of the Nordegren sisters.
This is Ursula’s story.
Ursula is probably the one of these humorous sisters that I disliked the most when I read the earlier books, so I was quite anxious to hear her side of things. And this book does a fine job at bringing her around. Ursula is quite the unusual character, yes, but she does have reasons for her strange ways. Most of these very strange beliefs and habits are seated in a deep fear. Fear that her grandmother instilled in her by telling her things when she was a young girl, and she’s just never been able to determine that these beliefs were untrue. Until now.
Ursula faces one of her fears – the belief that leaving the mountain means heading down to hell. On her way, she meets up with an injured man, Wax Mosby. So instead of going on down, she rescues him and takes him up to her home where she nurses him back to health.
Mary Connealy has written us another story full of humor and showing us how certain beliefs can be unhealthy. This lighthearted look at some unique and unusual characters is a fun book to read.
There is some danger and mystery mixed in, and I found it quite an enjoyable read.
