When Mountains Move by Julie Cantrell

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.

This book is one I received from the Fiction Guild. I probably wouldn't have requested it otherwise. Some of the books that they have sent me have left me really annoyed and wishing I didn't have to read them. This one fell a little flat for me too.

Here is what I thought.......
This book was sent to me from a blogging group I was in. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have read this book. This book read a little funny to me. It was hard to read because of the intimate nature of some of the scenes. They were border line of showing way too much. They didn't leave much to the imagination. The story was decent but the very intimate loves scenes made some of it hard to read. I liked the character of Millie. I liked the setting in Mississippi and Colorado. This wasn't my favorite book to read but I know there were several people who really enjoyed it. I received a free copy of this book from the Fiction Guild. A positive review was not required. All opinions are my own.
