When Mountains Move

When Mountains Move by Julie Cantrell

When Mountains Move is the sequel to Julie Cantrell’s award-winning debut novel, Into The Free. If you haven’t read, Into The Free, you simply must!

My thoughts of Into The Free can be found here: https://buzzingaboutbooks.com/2013/07/19/into-the-free/ 


It is the spring of 1943. With a wedding and a cross-country move, Millie’s world is about to change forever.

If only her past could change with it.

Soon after the break of day, Bump will become Millie’s husband. And then, if all goes as planned, they will leave the rain-soaked fields of Mississippi and head for the wilds of the Colorado Rockies. As Millie tries to forget a dark secret, she hasn’t yet realized how drastically those past experiences will impact the coming days.

For most of Millie’s life, being free felt about as unlikely as the mountains moving. But she’s about to discover that sometimes in life, we are given second chances, and that the only thing bigger than her past … is her future.


The majestic mountains of Colorado offer a fresh start for Millie Reynolds, even though secrets from her past remain. As Millie and Bump work together to establish a ranch, they are faced with many challenges. Millie continues to persevere and gradually begins to laugh and love and trust again. Slowly, she comes to the realization that she is loved, not only by those closest to her, but also by God himself. As this book so eloquently illustrates, love and forgiveness can certainly move mountains!

When Mountains Move is a beautifully woven story of human resilience that lingers, in the mind and on the heart, even after the last page has been turned. I have no doubt that Julie Cantrell has written another award-winning novel and I look forward to reading more from this wonderful author!
