Bookring; Keep the tissues handy for this women's fiction book. Charlotte is estranged from her daughter and granddaughter, and divorced from Ethan. Now that's granddaughter Maddy is 10 yo, Charlotte sees her at the playground and isn't as unobtrusive as she believes. Add in a church minister, unwed young mother-to-be with no place to live and a few other things, the what and why of Charlotte's motives become clear. ( )

One Mountain Away is an emotional novel that is a heartbreaking yet uplifting journey of love, forgiveness and redemption. To ready my review in its entirety, please visit http://www.bookreviewsandmorebykathy.com/2012/07/24/one-mountain-away/ ( )

This is novel touches on so many emotions you almost feel you are a part of the characters lives. It is a sad yet heart-warming story that has you pondering your own life. We tend to spend so much time trying to make a living that we actually forget to live!

A Must Read For Every Woman!

I have read all Emilie Richards' books so had pre-ordered on Nook and could not wait to read it. I finished it one day as could not put it down! It is one of the most powerful stories about life, mothers, daughters, grandmothers, fathers, forgiveness; Life is too short to hold grudges, and how people come into our lives with great meaning and purpose.

I loved the characters and how 3 different women find themselves with an unplanned pregnancy and how each was handled. I also loved the Asheville, NC setting as I am a native of NC and have lived in the southeast all my life and now live in West Palm Beach, FL; however, last fall returned to Asheville, NC to do some consulting work for the Grove Park Inn (fantastic place – make sure to get a rocking chair view and try the underground spa!) mentioned in the book, as well as spending time in Highlands, NC, which is where I visit each Fall. The mountains hold a special place for me as you feel close to God and there is peacefulness there, so the setting was fitting for a book of this nature.

I highly recommend as one of the top books and I read over a 100 books a year. One of Emilie’s best (and they are all good), but this one was special. I would love to see a sequel and continuation of Harmony as she was a character you fell in love with, as she grew from the scared insecure woman to finding her place, due to Charlotte’s warm and open heart. A Winner! (PS I think I went thru a box of Kleenex)

Emilie Richards has always given me a sense of completion when I’ve finished one of her novels, she has a unique way of telling a story and this story is her 70th published novel, and a debut in a brand new series. What a grand accomplishment. Maybe it’s her perspective from being a minister’s wife, maybe it’s she was born with that storytelling spoon in her mouth, whatever it is this story is special, unique and very emotional. As I recall her past novels I remember laughter and I remember a certain way she gave me life lessons, I’ve seen her mature as a writer as she’s matured as a woman and all of those things culminate in this most amazing read. The story is one any of us women of a “certain age” can empathize with, with all of our accomplishments but especially our regrets, it’s what Emilie did with the regrets part that will always stay with me. Her characters are as in depth as if they were my neighbors or friends, even enemies and she takes time to establish each one in her or his own part of her tale. Her narrative is what I’ve come to expect from her, her quiet and calming words that tell of explosive situations that’s easy to read and understand, she brought me the sights, smells and sounds of her story and I saw each scene with only her dialogue needed for my guide. This is much more than a love story although there is certainly that as well, but it’s a lesson to us all that it’s never too late to change and to remember that memories are sometimes flawed by emotions.
If you like the writing of Karen White or Patti Callahan Henry you'll love Emilie Richards.
Ms. Richards I'm so looking forward to where you take this series from here and thank you for always taking me on a trip worth remembering.

I'm also proud to announce that Emilie has graciously agreed to be my featured author for the Barnes & Noble General Fiction forum's September group read, so please pre-order the book now below and join us when we read and discuss this wonderful piece of literature together.

Charlotte Hale has always had to be in control, little does anyone know it stems from uncontrollable fear in her past. She’s done everything to get to where she is today, but she’s suddenly reminded of the costs she paid to get here. Now at a painful crossroads in her life she’s vowed to make amends, the trouble will be to convince those she needs that a leopard change her spots and the hope that she’ll have the time she needs to accomplish these difficult but important things.
Taylor has always relied on her father’s support ever since her mother’s words cut her heart out, but now at a crossroads of her own Taylor learns of her mother’s attempt to be a part of her and her daughter Maddie’s lives.
Ethan Martin is about to have a revelation when he sees his first ex-wife watching their grand-daughter from a bench in the park where she’s playing, is his heart willing to listen or has it become hardened to her voice.
Harmony Stoddard has escaped a hopeless situation at home only to find herself in the middle of another one, she’s about to meet a woman who will change her life. The question is will she recognize it for the miracle it is or will she let her past relationships rule her future ones too.
Reverend Analiese Wagner is going to be given an opportunity to practice what she preaches when she sees Charlotte sitting in an empty pew waiting for her.
With Devine intervention and human tenacity this unlikely group will have the possibility to make a change for the better in not only their own lives but also their community, the question is will they recognize it as a gift or will they let what came before predict their futures as well. ( )

Charlotte Hale planerar att förändra sitt liv Med inget annat än intelligens, ambitioner och rent mod har Charlotte Hale gjort sig en karriär som hårdför och smart fastighetsutvecklare. Hon står på bergets topp ... men hennes liv är tomt. Vännerna är lika giriga och ytliga som hon. Och än värre, hon har glidit så långt ifrån sin familj att hon helt tappat kontakten med sin enda dotter. När Charlotte en skrämmande dag ser döden i vitögat inser hon att ärelystnad nästan förstört hennes chans till lycka. Så hon bestämmer sig för att göra förändringar, och inte bara med sin ansenliga förmögenhet utan också genom att erbjuda en hjälpande hand istället för gåvor. Ge av sin tid och energi istället för att bara skrapa på ytan. Öppna sitt hem och sitt hjärta istället för plånboken. Varje omtumlande, upplivande och glädjekantat beslut får Charlotte att inse att vägen över ett nytt berg ett som är fyllt av vänskap, kärlek och förlåtelse lär henne vad det verkligen innebär att lämna något efter sig till andra.
