When Mountains Move by Julie Cantrell

About the Book:
When Mountains Move, by Julie Cantrell, is the sequel to the Christy Award winning Book of the Year and Debut Novel of the Year, Into the Free, which earned a starred review from Publishers Weekly and became both a New York Times and USA TODAY bestseller.

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.


Book Excerpt:

Friday May 7, 1943

Church bells strike to announce the hour. My body quakes from the force of the sound, and again from the force of the man, uninvited. He pushes me down, nails his elbow into my throat. I fight, kicking, clawing. Screaming.

Someone calls my name. “Millie?” 

I throw my fists into the night, lunging white-eyed toward the voice.

 “Millie! Stop! It’s me.” Bump wraps his arms around me, and I jerk back, pushing against him. He withdraws, asking, “You okay?”

I don’t answer. Instead, I stare at the pitch of the darkened ceiling and pull myself from the depths of the dream.
