Review: Honor in the Mountain Refuge by Misty M. Beller

Honor in the Mountain Refuge is another wonderful addition to the Call of the Rockies series. It can be enjoyed as a stand alone book, as the author has done a good job of creating the setting and catching the reader up on the fact that Telípe is a widow who is with child and had previously been kidnapped by Chogan’s tribe.

I loved so many things about this book. The setting was described so well that I felt as if I was there, experiencing what day to day life was like for a new mother in this village. It seemed as if Telípe was part of the village and welcomed in, yet since she was having to rely on the kindness of her brother’s family, she still felt as if she did not really have her own life.

I also loved the way Chogan and Telípe connected. Once Telípe realized that Chogan really was trustworthy, their hearts were clearly pulled toward each other. They were also both thankful for the welcoming group of friends, of which Telípe’s sister, Meksem, was part of. Both Chogan and Telípe had a hunger to know more about God and this novel had a beautiful faith message.

Having read the other books in the series, it was great to be able to see beloved characters again and see how their lives were progressing. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


This epic journey is his last chance to start a new life.

After being cast out of his Blackfoot village for his kindness to the Nez Perce captives, Chogan travels west in search of meaning for his life. Meaning that doesn’t require killing or torturing innocent people. Though the lovely face of Telípe, a Nez Perce woman, is imprinted on his heart, he avoids her village. She deserves a happy life with her husband and coming child.

With her husband dead and the birth of her babe imminent, Telípe’s reality looks nothing like she planned. She’s been forced to return to the village where she grew up and the chaos of her family’s lodge—with all her boisterous younger brothers. She desperately desires to start a new life for herself and the babe growing within her, but she can’t seem to climb above the mire of her past. When she stumbles into the brave who’d shown her kindness during her captivity, something ignites within her—a new hope.

Chogan’s determination to stay and help Telípe is thwarted by her people’s fear and hatred for his tribe—especially since he was among last winter’s kidnappers. It doesn’t matter that he did everything he could to keep her and her unborn child safe and comfortable during that awful event. But as a new predator threatens the safety of the village, Chogan determines to take down the massive wildcat that’s already injured several children—including one of Telípe’s younger brothers. When the danger escalates, Chogan is faced with an impossible choice. No matter which option he chooses, his life will never be the same—nor that of the woman he’s come to love.

From a USA Today bestselling author comes another epic journey through breathless landscapes and adventure so intense, lives will never be the same.
