5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling story! May 7 2002
By Brandi
Format:Paperback
This is a wonderful book. I read Gilbert Morris' series 'Cheney Duvuall M.D.' and decided to give this one a try and I'm glad I did. Gilbert Morris has wonderful way of spinning plots so that sometimes you never know what's going to happen. This is only the first book in the series I suggest the rest of the books in the series as well.
Josh Spencer leaves Williamsburg after the birth of his son Jacob and the death of his wife Faith to find himself in the Appalachian Mountains. For the short time he is there alone, tragedy strikes and a Cherokee chief, Sequatchie, finds him and brings him some hope.
After Elizabeth and Patrick MacNeal were married they stayed with Elizabeth's parents, William and Anne Martin, in Boston. They had two children, Andrew who will be thirteen and Sarah who will be ten. Patrick MacNeal's dream was to own a house and have his own land for his family, his dream hasn't been able to come true yet. Then a conspiracy is put into action to take over Martin Shipping Company, which results in a broken engagement for William Martin Jr. After the conspiracy Elizabeth and Patrick decide to follow Patrick's dream by going over the Appalachian Mountains and get their own land.
They sail to Virginia and join a wagon train heading west. The leaders of the wagon train end up being Josh Spencer now called Hawk and Sequatchie. Hawk's long time friend Paul Anderson heads over the mountains with him to preach to the Cherokee. The journey is packed with broken wagon wheels, horrible storms, flooded creeks, and last but not least a renegade Indian attack. The Indian attack has some casualties, which result in broken families.
The Frontier brought them together but will God keep them apart?

This was an excellent book. You can't wait to find out what happens to all the characters. Hawk spends a good share of his life hating God because his wife died. Its sad to see someone go through life like that. The story shows how he overcomes that along with how the other characters face their problems. This book teaches valuable life lessons. Well written, great story.

I am certainly not anyone to give a book review. I am only a reader, not a writer. But the style of these two writers is exactly what I have been looking for. I have read the first two books in the series of 'Spirit of Appalachia' and I'm looking forward to the third.
The story was so captivating to me, I couldn't stand to put it down! I am sure the writers had as much fun writing these as I had reading them!
The descriptions of places and characters puts a vivid picture in one's mind, so the reader feels as though he is actually standing in the place that is being described and with the character being described. Each character has a unique personality, so the reader can decide what kind of person he is reading about immediately.
Upon completion of the first book, I began reading the second one almost immediatly. I am anxious to find out what Hawk's son is going to do now! God bless you! Keep up the good work!

This book, Over the Misty Mountains, is an excellent book.
It is a book that one would love to just sit back and read
from cover to cover. An exciting book well-written by
a brand new author(Aaron Mccarver).
I can't wait for the sequel!
