Hills of Nevermore: An Inspirational Historical Romance (Montana Gold) (Volume 1)

By Janalyn Voigt


In an Idaho Territory boom town, America Liberty Reed overhears circuit preacher Shane Hayes try to persuade a hotel owner to close his saloon on Sunday. Shane lands face-down in the mud for his trouble, and there’s talk of shooting him. America intervenes and finds herself in an unexpectedly personal conversation with the blue-eyed preacher. Certain she has angered God in the past, she shies away from Shane. Addie Martin, another widow, invites America to help in her cook tent in Virginia City, the new mining town. Even with Addie’s teenage son helping with America’s baby, life is hard. Shane urges America to depart for a more civilized location. Neither Shane’s persuasions nor road agents, murder, sickness, or vigilante violence can sway America. Loyalty and ambition hold her fast until dire circumstances force her to confront everything she believes about herself, Shane, and God. Based on actual historical events during a time of unrest in America.

Book Takeaway:

Hills of Nevermore is a redemptive love story that through an earthly love between a man and woman shows God's love and mercy.

Why the author wrote this book:

My family was returning home from Yellowstone when we drove through Virginia City, an inhabited ghost town. I learned in a tourist brochure that this town had been the capital of Montana Territory. Excitement rushed over me as I realized we were passing Robbers Roost, a notorious road house. Popular tradition has it that outlaws watched from the balcony for stagecoaches carrying gold between Virginia City and Bannack, another gold rush town. I reveled in the drama of this tale, ripe fodder for an author’s imagination.
The story of a young widow at odds with God and fighting to survive and a handsome preacher with the courage to take on the lawless West came to life in my mind.
