Item description for Where Heaven Begins (Steeple Hill Women's Fiction #7) by Rosanne Bittner...
Against the rugged splendor of Alaska during the 1890's gold rush comes an inspiring love story and journey of discovery . . .
With rough miners stampeding to the Klondike's golden hills as her shipmates, Elizabeth Breckenridge sets sail for Alaska to find her brother in Dawson. But when Elizabeth falls overboard midjourney, she is rescued by a man very unlike her minister brother -- Clint Brady, a cynical bounty hunter who notoriously shoots to kill.
Together, this unlikely couple struggle for survival in the wilderness as they make their way north amid the awesome beauty of the Alaskan frontier. Dawson, peopled by "heathens," holds further surprises for Elizabeth. Perhaps most astonishing, Clint proposes marriage. Elizabeth returns his love but fears that his inability to let go of the past could cost them their future. Unless she can make Clint see that heaven is no abstraction in the sky, but something they can experience together . . .

Reviews - What do customers think about Where Heaven Begins (Steeple Hill Women's Fiction #7)?
Where Heaven Begins Mar 4, 2005
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.
At least 10 stars Feb 25, 2005
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.
Great Christian Reading Dec 18, 2004
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.
