"Say To This Mountain" is set in 1929 right after the stock market crash. It picked up immediately after the end of "A Thousand Shall Fall." This book was my favorite of the trilogy and was the third in the series. You really need to read at least "A Thousand Shall Fall" before this book to fully understand the events in this one. Besides, reading this novel out of order will spoil many events in the previous two novels.

There were several point of view characters from different parts of America and different stations in life. The characters were interesting, engaging, and dealt with realistic struggles. However, one character did do a pet peeve of mine: he decided not to tell his wife and child that they were in danger because...it might worry them.

The story was a fast read. The suspense was fairly high from beginning to end due to relationship tensions and threat of physical danger to several of the main characters. The historical and setting details brought the story alive in my imagination. The backdrop of this book was the fall-out from the market crash and how it affected various types of people.

Several of the main characters were Christians. There were multiple occasions where the characters briefly had conversations about God and how He worked, but they flowed naturally as a part of the story and weren't "preachy."

There was no explicit sex. There was a minor amount of "he cussed" style bad language. Overall, I'd highly recommend this enjoyable, well-written historical novel.
