I loved the characters and the realness of the relationships. The book is a reflection of how God sees other people and how, as Christians, we are called not to judge but to love others as He does.

I have been reading Christian fiction for about 15 years............I have NEVER read a Christian fiction book with four letter words! I was appalled - I will not read this author again, nor any Steeple Hill books - what are they thinking????

Where Heaven Begins is such a beautiful uplifting book. As only Rosanne Bittner can write, She has penned a sure historical inspirational classic. Great book.

I don't normally read inspirational romance but picked up this book because of my interest in the Klondike gold rush.

A bit slow, a bit boring, a bit preachy. Ended up skimming to finish. Surprised to find swear words in an inspirational.

However, my biggest complaint is lack of historical accuracy. I would expect that an established author would do proper research. The author mentions in her foreword that she relied for her facts on one book. This book was set in 1897, at the start of the stamped

Elizabeth Breckenridge leaves her home in San Francisco and naively heads for Dawson, Yukon in the middle of the Gold Rush. On the docks, she meets bounty hunter Clint Brady who ends up saving her from multiple escapades until they finally team up to get over White Pass and to Dawson.

VERY preachy Christian fiction, but interesting story of the Gold Rush. Clean.

The cover of this book is so incredibly beautiful-- that's why I got it. But the book itself, I really could not like. The characters felt so cliche, and one-dimensional, and the story did not interest me at all. The only reason I finished it quickly was that I wanted to get it over with and move on.

Lovely story and inspirational.


I'm amazed on others comments about being too "preachy."
Really?

Way too predictable....would never read another one of this author's books again!

This is a great book. Comparable with the likes of Julie Lessman & Karen Wittemeyer. Can't believe it hasn't gotten more attention than it has. Pick it up today!

For those of you who have not yet read my books, my stories are generally set in the American West of the 1800's and feature vividly-described, historically accurate settings that span the US from Missouri to California, from Canada to Mexico. Many of my books portray the poignant history of our Native Americans, and though the characters are my own, I use real historical locations and events in a ...more
