About the Book
Author: Misty M. Beller
Genre: Christian Historical Romance
Release date: November 1, 2022
Her quest to repair what’s been broken leads to imminent danger–and soon it’s more than her own life on the line.
After accidentally destroying the intricate chalice her people have treasured for over a hundred years, Charlotte Durand sets out on an expedition in search of a skilled artisan who can repair the damage. What she expected to be a two-day hike becomes much more daunting when a treacherous snowstorm sets in.
The last thing Damien Levette needs in the middle of a mountain blizzard is to tend to another person, but he can’t leave behind the mysterious woman he found half-frozen at the edge of a mountain lake.
As they battle both the elements and each other, Charlotte and Damien must work together to survive the peril of the mountains—or it could be the downfall of them both.

In My Opinion
Readers who enjoy frontier, man vs. nature romances should definitely put Misty M. Beller on their lists of authors to read. There are always elements of man against nature, as well as vivid descriptions of the landscape.
A Daughter’s Courage features Charlotte Durand, who readers met in the second book, and a Damien Levette, who is a newcomer to the series. Both Charlotte and Damien see themselves as less than others around them, but when they are together, they build each other up well.
I was a tad disappointed that the final book in the Brides of Laurent series about a group of people who lived among a system of caves had very few scenes in said caves, but Damien and Charlotte needed the space to get to know each other’s character, and there’s no way for that to happen than to put them in situations where they have to depend on and trust each other.

Behind the Scenes of A Daughter’s Courage
I always love stories where the characters are on a journey, and I knew that’s exactly what the characters in this book would be doing. Our heroine, Charlotte, is the younger sister of the heroine in book 1 of this series, and we’ve gotten to know her a little better with each book. Her mother died when she was young, and she’s been the homemaker for their little family for over a decade now, never straying farther from the village than the berry patches in the next valley over. So I knew it would take something big to get her away from Laurent for the journey I had in mind for this story. Something lifechanging.
Our hero is a trapper who left the larger group he’d been traveling with to strike out on his own. I knew it would take a considerable amount of tragedy to make a man seek such complete aloneness. Damien has his trusty mule Gulliver with him, so I guess he’s not completely alone, but he’s definitely hoping to stay far away from people. As I uncovered the pain that brought him to this point, my heart broke for him and all the loss he experienced.
I love the way Charlotte’s need and the fierce mountain snowstorm drew Damien from his grief and gave him new purpose. Watching him come back to life and grasp onto God’s love for him was so inspiring!

This story takes place during a time period that is different from what I usually read. So it will be a nice change.
