Millie’s always been a survivor and her spirit is tested as she embarks on a new adventure with her new husband, far from home.
Both books are written in the first-person, which is a style I’m learning to love. I feel a closer connection with the characters when I feel like I’m walking in step beside them and they’re talking to me along the way. And Millie’s road has been hard, but she has a strength about her that won’t quit. I admire this young girl from the South who is determined not to end up like her mother and who battles events, past and present, that threaten to bring her down.
Millie has matured through the pages of these books, and When Mountains Move is a fitting continuation of this World War II era story. Where Into the Free dealt with young love and the desire to break away from circumstances, When Mountains Move tackles the tough subjects of faithfulness and honesty in marriage, as well as what it means to commit to someone for better, for worse.
