  • Gold Mountain

    Gwendolen Lampshire Hayden, Pearl Clements Gischler, The Good and the Beautiful, Susan Muse

    Audible Audiobook (The Good and the Beautiful, May 31, 2019)
    The two children watched and waved until the figures grew smaller and smaller. At last the big, white-topped wagon rolled slowly around a bend in the dusty road. Then they could no longer see their old farm. Daniel and Betsy blinked their blue eyes before they looked at each other. Pa had said that they must not cry when they left their nice farm. They must be happy all the way down the wide valley and across the Cascade Mountains. They must smile as they went up, up into the Blue Mountains of eastern Oregon. Daniel and Besty's family are some of the very first people to arrive on a little mountain in Oregon where gold was discovered. It's not long until a whole town of muslin tents pops up. Will the family find gold, and if they do, can they find a place to hide it?
  • On Gold Mountain

    Lisa See

    Paperback (Vintage, Feb. 7, 2012)
    In 1867, Lisa See's great-great-grandfather arrived in America, where he prescribed herbal remedies to immigrant laborers who were treated little better than slaves. His son Fong See later built a mercantile empire and married a Caucasian woman, in spite of laws prohibiting interracial marriage. Lisa herself grew up playing in her family's antiques store in Los Angeles's Chinatown, listening to stories of missionaries and prostitutes, movie stars and Chinese baseball teams. With these stories and her own years of research, Lisa See chronicles the one-hundred-year-odyssey of her Chinese-American family, a history that encompasses racism, romance, secret marriages, entrepreneurial genius, and much more, as two distinctly different cultures meet in a new world.

    eBook (Kelli Callahan Books, Sept. 2, 2017)
    I gave the world two middle fingers when I moved to the mountainsYeah, I’ve got skeletons in my closet, but who doesn’t?I built a log cabin that has everything I needWinter is coming alright, but I’m readyThen I hear there’s a woman lost in the snowstormWas it the same gorgeous blonde I saw earlier that day?If she’s lost in Devil’s Pass, nobody can save her but meShane: I was well stocked for the snowstorm, ready to drink my way through it like I’ve done with so many before. I sure didn’t expect it to find a gorgeous virgin nearly frozen to death in her car. I guess I’m going to have to find a way to warm her up.Heather: My friends are really bad with directions and apparently my GPS doesn’t work in the mountains. I made one wrong turn and ended up trapped in a massive snowstorm. Just when I thought it was all over, Shane found me. He’s a ridiculously hot bearded man who lives in a log cabin he built himself! I don’t think I’m going to be a virgin when this storm is over.Kelli's Note: This is a steamy standalone novella with a HEA and no cheating! I'm a girl that likes wild and crazy romances, so that is exactly what you get from me. My heroes might be a little over-the-top with a touch of caveman and you'll get some angst along the way, but I promise that the good parts will give you a plenty of reasons to read this all by yourself!

  • Cold Mountain

    Charles Frazier

    Hardcover (Atlantic Monthly Press, May 16, 1997)
    Cold Mountain is an extraordinary novel about a soldier’s perilous journey back to his beloved at the end of the Civil War. At once a magnificent love story and a harrowing account of one man’s long walk home, Cold Mountain introduces a stunning new talent in American literature.Based on local history and family stories passed down by the author’s great-great-grandfather, Cold Mountain is the tale of a wounded soldier, Inman, who walks away from the ravages of the war and back home to his prewar sweetheart, Ada. Inman’s odyssey through the devastated landscape of the soon-to-be-defeated South interweaves with Ada’s struggle to revive her father’s farm, with the help of an intrepid young drifter named Ruby. As their long-separated lives begin to converge at the close of the war, Inman and Ada confront the vastly transformed world they’ve been delivered.Charles Frazier reveals marked insight into man’s relationship to the land and the dangers of solitude. He also shares with the great nineteenth century novelists a keen observation of a society undergoing change. Cold Mountain re-creates a world gone by that speaks eloquently to our time.

    Charles Frazier

    Paperback (Grove Press, Aug. 31, 2006)
    In 1997, Charles Frazier’s debut novel Cold Mountain made publishing history when it sailed to the top of The New York Times best-seller list for sixty-one weeks, won numerous literary awards, including the National Book Award, and went on to sell over three million copies. Now, the beloved American epic returns, reissued by Grove Press to coincide with the publication of Frazier’s eagerly-anticipated second novel, Thirteen Moons. Sorely wounded and fatally disillusioned in the fighting at Petersburg, a Confederate soldier named Inman decides to walk back to his home in the Blue Ridge mountains to Ada, the woman he loves. His trek across the disintegrating South brings him into intimate and sometimes lethal converse with slaves and marauders, bounty hunters and witches, both helpful and malign. At the same time, the intrepid Ada is trying to revive her father’s derelict farm and learning to survive in a world where the old certainties have been swept away. As it interweaves their stories, Cold Mountain asserts itself as an authentic odyssey, hugely powerful, majestically lovely, and keenly moving.
