"Whoever said you can't choose your family didn't have a clue."
1872, British Columbia, Canada.
For Hope and Luke, Harcourt’s Mountain is their haven of happiness and safety for their little family. The last thing Hope wants is to leave.
Family is everything, but it can also destroy you. Unexpectedly, they have to go to Boston when Luke’s father suffers a stroke. When the long reach of vengeance turns their world into a nightmare, blame, heartache and loss will bring them to their knees. But will it tear them apart?
Heart of the Mountain is a gut-wrenching family saga of revenge and despair. As it unfolds, it tests the love of Luke and Hope, as well as the lives of the people with whom they intersect.
Get ready to race towards the end, as this unthinkable journey takes you through the fire-damaged remains of Boston, the dangers of the deep-South, and the majestic Canadian Wilderness. Can love survive? Can family find itself again? Once again, Elaine Dodge keeps you enthralled until the very last page.
"So great to be back on the mountain again getting to know familiar characters better and discovering some smaller characters taking centre stage in this story. From one cliff hanger to the next, the story kept me reading deep into the night! I'm hoping there will be another to make it a trilogy!" – Nick Read 5 Stars
