“I can always count on Tricia Goyer to draw me into her story world. She deftly writes characters I can root for right to the very end. Treat yourself to a great Goyer read!” -Robin Lee Hatcher, bestselling author of Even Forever and All She Ever Dreamed
If you are looking for a story with deep themes and heart-warming characters you’ll fall in love with, check out Beyond the Gray Mountains.
After devouring the first three of Tricia Goyer’s Big Sky novels (Beside Still Waters, Along Wooded Paths, and Beyond Hope’s Valley), it was very satisfying to get to read this one. Of course, there are still obstacles for Ben and Marianna to overcome, but Goyer does a great job of helping them work through the challenges. Lots of plot twists, but great resolution. — Mugget
In Beyond the Gray Mountains, Tricia did not disappoint. From the very beginning, the reader is thrown into the lives of the Amish community in West Kootenai, Montana and you’ll find yourself wrapped up in the struggles of living life according to the Amish ways and the worldly ways. It’s more than just Marianna and Ben who find themselves torn between two worlds.
I listened to the audiobook and absolutely LOVED narrator MacKenzie Koppa. — Kate Angelo
