When Mountains Move

Julie Cantrell
Also Available In

In a few hours, Millie will say "I do" to Bump Anderson, a man who loves her through and through. But would he love her if he knew the secret she keeps?

Millie's mind is racing and there seems to be no clear line between right and wrong. Either path leads to pain, and she'll do anything to protect the ones she loves. So she decides to bury the truth and begin again, helping Bump launch a ranch in the wilds of Colorado. But just when she thinks she's left her old Mississippi life behind, the facts surface in the most challenging way.

That's when Millie's grandmother, Oka, arrives to help. Relying on her age-old Choctaw traditions, Oka teaches Millie the power of second chances. Millie resists, believing redemption is about as likely as moving mountains. But Oka stands strong, modeling forgiveness as the only true path to freedom.

Together, Bump, Millie, and Oka fight against all odds to create a sustainable ranch, all while learning that the important lessons of their pasts can be used to build a beautiful future.

Unexpectedly Brilliant
5 stars By Iola, Jul 26 2016
When Mountains Move is not an easy read: it starts with Millie, our heroine, having a dreamflashback to her rape six weeks earlier. She's now marrying Bump (Kenneth Anderson, and that's probably the only thing I never understood: where he got such a ridiculous nickname), and they are leaving Mississippi for Colorado, where Bump has a job managing a run-down ranch. 

While the ranch is the main setting, ranch life isn't the core of the plot or theme. Rather, the story is about Millie coping with the attack and the after affects, and the strain this puts on her marriage. It's a story of love and trust and mistrust, the story of a marriage, and it's riveting. 

The novel is told entirely in first person present tense from Millie's point of view, which is an interesting literary choice for a historical novel-most tend to be third person and past tense. First person seems to be reserved for young adult and new adult novels, and in a way that fits: When Mountains Move is an extension of the coming of age novel, and seventeen-year-old Millie is certainly in the right age bracket to attract YANA readers.
