Review

No longer welcome at the San Francisco church where her father was minister, Elizabeth Breckenridge decides her only choice is to join her brother in Alaska, where he is preaching God's word. With her conviction that God will see her through her journey, she takes passage on a boat filled with prospectors and fallen women. Providentially, bounty hunter Clint Brady is also keeping his eye on the young woman. When Elizabeth falls overboard, Clint rescues her, and when they reach Skagway, Elizabeth returns the favor as Clint falls ill. Rather than leave her at the mercy of unscrupulous prospectors, Clint decides to take Elizabeth to the town of Dawson, where her brother has his church. On their journey, Elizabeth searches for a way to bring Clint closer to God as they struggle to survive the arduous mountain trail. Bittner has penned a religious romance filled with Christian references and Bible quotes as well as adventure. -- Booklist, May 1, 2011

More About the Author

Welcome! I'm glad to be in touch with you, especially if you love American history and America's Old West of the 1800's. I hope you enjoy stories about that time period, as well as Native American stories. It's what I love to write and currently I've had 59 novels published over the past 32 years. I am still writing and won't stop until the Good Lord requires it. Please check out my web site at www.rosannebittner.com for all the information you could ask for about my books. You can also visit me on Facebook.

I grew up on westerns. They dominated television - shows like The Big Valley, Cheyenne, Wagon Train, Roy Rogers, The Lone Ranger, Rawhide, Bonanza, Have Gun/Will Travel, The Rifleman, Wanted - Dead or Alive, and of course the famous Gunsmoke, which I still watch today on TV Land as well as on the Western Channel. I love the big western stars like John Wayne, Clint Eastwood and James Stewart. When I was a teen my idol was James Arness (Matt Dillon of Gunsmoke) instead of Elvis and the like. My all-time favorite western movies are The Guns of Josie Wales, Pale Rider and Hang 'Em High (all starring Clint Eastwood) - The Searchers, Rooster Cogburn and The Shootist (John Wayne). When I was eighteen and watched How The West Was Won, I knew that some day I would write stories about that glorious time period of America's history. Books that deeply impressed me are A Lantern In Her Hand by Bess Streeter Aldrich, and The Proud Breed, by Celeste de Blasis.

No other nation has exploded in exploration and settlement like America, and to this day our Native Americans still suffer culture shock. When I read Dee Brown's Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee (a must read for anyone who wants to know the truth about America's natives and how they suffered as we settled the West), I knew I also had to tell stories of America's growth through the eyes of the Native Americans, because so much of what we were (and still are) taught in school is completely slanted and mostly untrue. It certainly was NOT all Indian/bad-guy and Soldier/good-guy. Many lies were told, many promises broken, and our government horribly abused the Native Americans. But that is another story, and I try to get some of it across in my books.

I also strive to tell an abiding love story between two people whose love holds them together through the trials and tribulations of settling America's frontiers. It took grit and bravery to head into rugged, unknown territory, knowing you will leave family behind whom you will probably never see again. Free land, gold and a better life were strong temptations for men, as well as for many brave-hearted women. I think the best books you can read for a truthful depiction of this country's growth and its affect on Native Americans is Dee Brown's book mentioned above, and the book Disinherited, by Dale Van Every. Also, the true and powerful history of this country as faced by red man and white alike is cuttingly depicted in any book you can get your hands on written by Allan Eckert.

I have lived in Michigan my whole life, but I truly believe that somehow I have a past spirit who lives or lived in the Old West, especially perhaps Colorado, which I love more than any other place in America. I yearn to be there, and I feel I "belong" in the Rocky Mountains. When I go there I feel so "at home." However, the family business as well as our two sons and our grandsons all live close by here in Michigan. I wouldn't leave them. But my husband and I have traveled the West for years and I have visited just about every place mentioned in my books. I am also very active here with fund-raising community projects through our local Coloma Lioness Club, and I am a member of Women Writing the West, Romance Writers of American, Mid-Michigan Romance Writers of America, Western Writers of America and several historical societies of western states.

Watch my web site at www.rosannebittner.com, and my blog site at www.rosannebittner.blogspot.com, and look me up on Facebook for news about any new books coming, and about many of my past titles that are now available in print and as e-books! In the summer of 2015 my 60th book will be published, a beautiful western love story (and a sequel to OUTLAW HEARTS) called DO NOT FORSAKE ME.

It's always nice to read a romance without the mindless and moronic explicit sexual scenes.
Ellie
It is great to find a hero who controls his lust out of respect for a woman even though the life he's been living has no too for God in it.

i found this book to be a delightful romance, with quite a bit of adventure, too. i loved the christian theme, it was straight to the point. the book deals with the subject of trusting in the Lord in spite of tragedies and misfortunes. i think this is a subject upon which everyone has had questions at one time or other and i personally profited greatly from reading "where heaven begins".
the romance was very sweet, while at the time being quite realistic.

Format: Paperback
This is one of best novels I've read. The characters are so real. They have real issues and struggles and face lots of adversity. If you don't read this book you will be missing out on a skillfully written story of love, trust, forgiveness and determination. You will laugh and cry with these characters whom you will come to love very much. I highly recommend this book to anyone. You won't be sorry you took the time. It's one you won't want to put down. Rosanne Bittner has a rare gift in the way she writes.

Format: Paperback
This is a story about two opposites. A rough bounty hunter running away from his past and a Christian woman who falls in love with him and helps him face his past, while he saves her life every five minutes. The story is somewhat entertaining and easy to read.

This appears to be the first "Christian" book by Ms. Bittner. However, I couldn't help but feel that she's writing about something she doesn't really understand. The heroine is a "good" Christian and there are plenty of bible verses thrown in for good measure. However, something just doesn't ring true. I can't help but feel like this is just a "new market" for Ms. Bittner. If you read Robin Lee Hatcher or Francine Rivers (who once were secular writers), you can immediately tell that they understand what being a Christian is and how one thinks. Ms. Bittner seemed to write a story and throw some verses and preaching in there to "make it Christian." Overall it was a fun story and I hope she continues to write more in the same vein. It's always nice to read a romance without the mindless and moronic explicit sexual scenes.

Having read and enjoyed most of Rosanne Bittner's novels since the 80s, I found this book on Steeplehill's (the publisher) website, and I thought, hmmm. It sounded awfully good and decided to order it. I'm very glad I did. Nowadays (having grown older) I read mostly Christian books and I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It's a light read, not too in-depth, but enjoyable nonetheless. It is now being passed around by the ladies at my church! Ms. Bittner has another Christian fiction book coming out in January, 2005 and I intend to read that one also. Read this book, you'll be glad you did.

It is great to read a romance without explicit sex and a sheltered girl who remains true to her faith while she's facing life after being brutally from her comfort zone. She learns many 'life lessons' while trusting that God has set her feet on the difficult path she must travel. It is great to find a hero who controls his lust out of respect for a woman even though the life he's been living has no too for God in it. But lest a potential reader be misled this is an adventure that has 2 likable characters facing the fardships of the Klondike Gold Rush. Mother Nature, outlaws, and careless ship's captains create adventures that test their endurance physically, emotionally and spiritually. If Ms Bittner continues to write novels like this one I'll definitely give it a read.
