About the Book
Book: A Daughter’s Courage
Author: Misty M. Beller
Genre: Christian Historical Romance
Release date: November 1, 2022
Her quest to repair what’s been broken leads to imminent danger–and soon it’s more than her own life on the line.
After accidentally destroying the intricate chalice her people have treasured for over a hundred years, Charlotte Durand sets out on an expedition in search of a skilled artisan who can repair the damage. What she expected to be a two-day hike becomes much more daunting when a treacherous snowstorm sets in.
The last thing Damien Levette needs in the middle of a mountain blizzard is to tend to another person, but he can’t leave behind the mysterious woman he found half-frozen at the edge of a mountain lake.
As they battle both the elements and each other, Charlotte and Damien must work together to survive the peril of the mountains—or it could be the downfall of them both.

Charlotte Durand accidentally damages the village’s beloved chalice and wants to fix it before people find out and are upset. Charlotte sets out on her own, not thinking of anything more than going to the nearest fort that would have people who might be able to help. What ensues is Charlotte’s arduous journey with the help of Damien Leyette, a stranger who rescues her from a deadly situation.
Charlotte was such a strong and determined young lady. I admired her for the love that she had for her father and her village that she would go to such lengths to try and have the chalice fixed.
I found the village of Laurent that was Charlotte’s home to be intriguing since it was hidden inside a mountain. What would that have been like to be secluded and living there? Damien would be the perfect fit for Charlotte and the people of this unique town. I would like to have had the author’s notes on how she came up with the idea. Was it based upon a real place?
I enjoyed the surprising revelation of the chalice. This was a terrific way of bringing things together at the end of the book. I recommend reading this book if you like westerns, books with characters of faith, and/or stories of adventure. While this is book three in the Brides of Laurent series, it can be read as a stand alone. I have not read any of the other books and had no difficulty following the storyline.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley and Celebrate Lit. All opinions expressed are my own.

Behind the Scenes of A Daughter’s Courage
I always love stories where the characters are on a journey, and I knew that’s exactly what the characters in this book would be doing. Our heroine, Charlotte, is the younger sister of the heroine in book 1 of this series, and we’ve gotten to know her a little better with each book. Her mother died when she was young, and she’s been the homemaker for their little family for over a decade now, never straying farther from the village than the berry patches in the next valley over. So I knew it would take something big to get her away from Laurent for the journey I had in mind for this story. Something lifechanging.
Our hero is a trapper who left the larger group he’d been traveling with to strike out on his own. I knew it would take a considerable amount of tragedy to make a man seek such complete aloneness. Damien has his trusty mule Gulliver with him, so I guess he’s not completely alone, but he’s definitely hoping to stay far away from people. As I uncovered the pain that brought him to this point, my heart broke for him and all the loss he experienced.
I love the way Charlotte’s need and the fierce mountain snowstorm drew Damien from his grief and gave him new purpose. Watching him come back to life and grasp onto God’s love for him was so inspiring!
