When Mountains Move by Julie Cantrell
started with a milestone: marriage. It should be an exciting and happy beginning for Millie and Bump. Right? Yet with a horrific past and secrets, I began to share Millie’s burden. Thus, I do not quite find the book entertaining or spiritually inspiring. It also started to become a slow read. There were times I wished that I’d reach the end of the story already.
The author wrote down every little action in every conversation. Details are good, however, it seemed to me they were fillers for more pages.
I liked that it’s somewhat relatable. I have been a young wife and a first-time mom once. My marriage saw ups and downs with my husband. I have felt guilt during the times my children get sick. It is true that “no man is an island”. We all need help, whether in doing things or processing feelings. Millie is blessed that Oka was there for her.
One thing I learned from the book When Mountains Move is how challenging it is to run a ranch. Oh, and that it’s possible to begin yet again.
