Set in the mountains of Colorado, this contemporary, romantic-suspense novel combines the thrill of mountain rescue with the adventures of a woman named Tatum, who learns that God’s leading comes in unexpected packages and sometimes calls us to overcome fears and step out in faith.
Tatum Kessler is a thirty-something woman who actively avoids risk. She has her perfect life planned with the man of her dreams. But he seldom speaks of his past. And, in contrast to her, he gets his greatest thrills from the extreme sport of mountain climbing—on Colorado’s 14,000-foot mountain peaks.
Tatum finds that what seems too good to be true, probably is. Through an avalanche of tragedies, as she works her way through suspense and intrigue, she learns that risks of love—and rescue—are worth taking.
A story about trusting others, holding to faith in God, and choosing to live to the extreme.
To Conquer A Mountain is a fictional story that kept my interest with surprising twists of adventure, romance and suspense. It flows well and the believable characters face challenges to life itself. Throughout our lives we are faced with significant life changes whether we like it or not. The joys and hardships of the past make us what we are today, but wisdom teaches us that more change will come in the future. Conquering life’s mountains in our lives is challenging, such as schooling, jobs, moving to a new location, dating, marriage or divorce, birth, and death. Accepting and working through life’s changes can be a struggle but victory leads to renewed life. This is what I took away from Jeanie Flierl’s novel. Let it speak to you! –Larry Lawton
