"Every once in a while you find a book that doesn't seem to be just written by the author but through the author...as if something spiritual happens as the story unfolds." --Christine Fernandez, Amazon Reviewer
"Every bit as good as the first book in this series, Lady in Defiance, Hearts in Defiance richly illustrates the principle of Romans 8:28. God does work all things out for good for those who love Him and are called to His purpose! These three sisters each have a compelling yet different story of how God is at work in their lives and how He uses them to lead others to Him. Most entertaining western fiction chock-full of Biblical principles! Heather Blanton's writing is realistic and refreshing." --Janet Cody, Amazon Reviewer
"Love, love, love Ms. Blanton's ability to weave a skillful tale that captures and carries you from her first words to the end. Compelling story of "Going West" and all that entails in the lives of these ladies in Defiance." --Author Diane Gates
About the Author
A former journalist, Heather is an avid researcher and skillfully weaves truth in among the fictional story lines. She loves exploring the American West, especially ghost towns and museums. She has walked parts of the Oregon Trail, ridden horses through the Rockies, climbed to the top of Independence Rock, and even held an outlaw's note in her hand.
She writes Westerns because she grew up on a steady diet of Bonanza, Gunsmoke, and John Wayne movies. Her most fond childhood memory is of sitting next to her father, munching on popcorn, and watching Lucas McCain unload that Winchester!
She can be reached several different ways:
Heather's stories aren't preachy or cheesy, but she hopes they are heart-warming, realistic, illuminating, and glorifying to God. Like good old fashioned Westerns, there is always justice, a moral message, American values, lots of high adventure, unexpected plot twists, and more than a touch of suspense.
"I believe Christian fiction should be messy and gritty, because the human condition is ... and God loves us anyway." -- Heather Blanton
