Christian fiction goes out west with 'A Mighty Fortress' by Faith Blum

Author Faith Blum takes readers from southern Illinois to the wilds of Montana in her novel “A Mighty Fortress.” Her inspirational Western fiction sees farmers becoming ranchers and lost souls being found. Set in the late 1870s, the story describes the Western movement and its inherent dangers as seen through the eyes of Joshua and Ruth Brookings, the youngest siblings of a close knit Christian family.

As Joshua and Ruth travel west to their parents’ new ranch, they encounter stagecoach robbers and desperation as the driver is killed and they must flee for their lives on foot. As they fight to stay alive in unfamiliar country and to make their way to civilization, the reader is part of the journey. Pursued by the thief they outwitted, they need all of their faith and skills to get through the ordeal.
