What it’s about
After a grizzly bear kills Antonia Valleau’s
trapper husband, she packs her few worldly possessions, leaves her home in the
mountains of Montana, and treks to nearby Sweetwater Springs, seeking work to
provide for her two young sons.
Reeling from the loss of his wife during
childbirth, Erik Muth must find a nursing mother for his newborn daughter to
survive. For their children’s sake, Erik and Antonia wed, starting a new life
together on his farm on the prairie. But it’s no easy union. Antonia
misunderstands Erik’s quiet personality. He finds her independence
disconcerting. Both hide secrets that challenge their growing intimacy.
When Indians steal livestock from farms around
Sweetwater Springs to feed their starving tribe, the outraged townsfolk demand
retaliation. Erik and Antonia must work together to prevent a massacre. Will a
marriage forged in loss blossom into love?


 Steffi’s Review
4 stars!
Antonia Valleau and Erik Muth enter a marriage of
convenience after both their spouses died tragically just days ago. When Erik’s
Daisy died in childbirth, he desperately needed a wet-nurse for his premature
little girl, and after the death of Antonia’s husband, she had no way to
support her two sons as a trapper’s widow. Still grieving, this couple comes
together under troubled circumstances to keep this new family save. 
Healing Montana Sky is my favourite in the Montana
Sky series so far. These books are about love and family with a very mild romance, but it is really fitting for the stories Debra Holland tells. Especially
because their grief is so fresh, Antonia and Erik take a while to warm up to
each other, but I loved the friendship they shared and the deeper connection
that developed from that friendship. The boys and Erik’s baby girl bring a lot
of depth to the story and I particularly enjoyed visiting with some of my
favourite characters from previous books. Antonia is very different to Erik’s
first wife in her independence and willingness to work hard for the farm. More
than anything, Erik respects and admires her. Under the most tragic
circumstances this family finds its way back to happiness and I enjoyed being
part of their journey.
