Publisher's Summary

Ten year old James is amused by the Mormon preachers who visit his mountain homeland. A small community that lay protected from outsiders by towering Alpine mountains. The strength of these mountains has allowed James' people to thrive for centuries in the face of terrible persecution from outsiders. Now James' family faces a new and unexpected threat. One that many in the community fear will be more dangerous than anything that has come before. Mormon Missionaries have come to their mountain.
Critics Agree: Listen to the book that critics are calling "engaging", "hard to put down", and "a fresh perspective on an old genre". Based on a true story, The Mountain Christians is the LDS Novel that explores a young man's difficulties in coming to terms with the faith of his fathers, his pastors, and the teachings of strange American preachers. The Mountain Christians: By Hiram J. Bertoch is available online, or wherever LDS Books are sold.

Good LDS book

If you could sum up The Mountain Christians: An LDS Novel in three words, what would they be?

It helped open my understanding of what the new converts to the church went through. It wasn't a true story which I didn't figure out until the end but it was well done.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mountain Christians: An LDS Novel?

The character of the father was the most memorable because I've known people like that but its rare.

What aspect of Rebecca Vail’s performance would you have changed?

I finished a few books by Katherine Kelgrin and it's hard to listen to anyone else because she is amazing so I didn't find RV's story telling near the performance of KK. Not RV's fault but KK is a tough act to follow.

Original Christian - From the Mission of Lorenzo Snow

I truly enjoyed this novel, a story of the Christians who lived the the tops of the Alps, eking out survival in tough circumstances that they might keep the their religion, begun in the days of Jesus Christ, pure. Written from the perspective of the youngest member of one mountain family. Well worth the read.
