Genre: Christian Contemporary Amish Romance
Marianna Sommer always dreamed of a simple Amish wedding, but there’s nothing simple about marrying rock star Ben Stone. She loves him—but what about her traditions? Worse, suddenly Ben has questions—the kind that have him putting their wedding on hold.
Ben loves Marianna, but he has regrets—and fears—that are suddenly getting in the way of his happy ending. He doubts he’s going to “hear from God” in the high mountains like Marianna’s father suggests. But sure, he’ll go…
But he might not return. Because high on the continental divide, trouble finds them. Now, it’ll take a miracle for Ben, Abe, and Abe’s brother, Ike, to make it down alive. Maybe Ben will hear from God after all…but if he does, can he become the man he needs to be to save them…and keep Marianna’s heart?
When a runaway horse with a bloody saddle shows up, not only is the media alerted, but Marianna fears she’ll lose them all—her uncle, her father, and her beloved Ben. Suddenly she doesn’t care what the wedding looks like…as long as Ben makes it home.
But is there more to Ben than she knows? And when she discovers his secrets, what sacrifices will she make to save…and marry…the man she loves?
Fall in love with the first book in the cherished Big Sky Amish Collection.

Beyond the Gray Mountains is book one in the Big Sky Amish series that is written by Tricia Goyer. The author did a really good job in writing the scenes so that you felt like you were standing there watching it unfold. These characters were previously introduced in Beside Still Waters. I did not read this book and did not have any issues with following along. We see Marianna and Ben starting to plan their wedding,. Marianna wants a simple traditional Amish Wedding.
However, Ben has some issues and fears. He wants to delay the wedding - he knows he loves Marianna but his faith is suffering. Ben, Marianna's father and Uncle Ike go on a hike across the continental divide. This is a eye opening experience for Ben. He has been living life as an Englisher and a rock star.
I loved this book. I loved the Big Sky Mountains, I loved the storyline of an Amish woman marrying a rockstar - I loved the faith in God that our characters had. The book is packed full of emotions and will leave you with wanting the next book as soon as possible.
