A Reader's Opinion: A MOUNTAIN MAN'S REDEMPTION by Christi Corbett


Can Philip trust in his newfound faith to lead the way?


Heartwarming western novella! A Mountain Man's Redemption is the second book that I read by author Christi Corbett! Set during the 1880’s period in Montana Territory, this short story is well paced to keep your interest, well written, and filled with lots of emotion! In this book you will follow Philip and Hannah's journey into Montana Territory. Philip is a man who prefers his solitude by living in the wilderness and fur trapping. Several years have passed now, and he is ready to accept his destiny. But when he discovers a young woman with her infant son who was battered by her husband, he will offer his help. Is there hope for this young mother? Along their journey to safety, she will start to trust him and share her secret, but Philip has his secrets, too. What will happen next? This story is about trust, hope, and faith, which all make it a very touching story! Christi Corbett is a talented storyteller and a very descriptive writer. Her stories are heartwarming and filled with strong emotions! If you don't mind the subject of battered women, then I recommend this story to you!

Eighteen years ago, Philip Grant—overcome with regret for what he couldn’t foresee and memories of what he couldn’t prevent—abandoned all to live the solitary life of a fur trapper. Years spent roaming ridgelines and riverbanks in Montana Territory left his body weary and his confidence weak, so he decides to turn in his last bundle of furs and await the inevitable in a cabin. Alone. Then a body-shaped lump wrapped in a quilt changes everything. Philip discovers a battered woman and her infant son, on the run from a ruthless abuser with a penchant for whiskey. Seventy miles of snow-covered mountain peaks and windswept flatlands stand between them and safety—the woman’s aunt’s house. Can Philip trust in his newfound faith to lead the way? *Content Warning: Domestic Violence/Abuse*
