When Mountains Move by Julie Cantrell It is the spring of 1943. With a wedding and a cross-country move, Millie’s world is about to change forever. If only her past could change with it. Soon after the break of day, Bump will become Millie’s husband. And then, if all goes as planned, they will leave the rain-soaked fields of Mississippi and head for the wilds of the Colorado Rockies. As Millie tries to forget a dark secret, she hasn’t yet realized how drastically those past experiences will impact the coming days.For most of Millie’s life, being free felt about as unlikely as the mountains moving. But she’s about to discover that sometimes in life, we are given second chances, and that the only thing bigger than her past … is her future.


This was a story about a young couple during World War 2, getting married in Louisiana and moving that same day to Colorado. The young couple were going to take over a ranch for a man who bought it. After so many years if it became profitable they could take it over or get so much in cash and start a new somewhere else. The young man not knowing that his bride was raped before they had gotten married. This caused for some added drama because after they were in Colorado for a few months he brought her grandmother to live with them. She knew at once that she was with child and then she told her grandmother what had happen. Her grandmother told her that the child was wanted regardless of how she felt and she needed to tell her husband. She did not but she did have the baby and knew her grandmother was right. While this was all going on the husband who had gone to school to be a vet, was working more around the ranch with a hand they hired and a neighbor lady who lost her husband during the war was trying to come between them. He had to go on a cattle drive and when he got back things were worse between him and his wife. Still no one would talk, but he loved the little they had. Then one day out of the blue the man who rapped her shows up at their ranch he ends up confronting her with the child out on the trail and is taken care by nature. When her husband gets there they finally talk and she tells him everything. He hugs her and says I wish you would have told me sooner. The ranch is making money and they stay there. A very good story about real life.
