Overview

A truly inspiring adventure set in the Alaskan gold rush - 1890. Elizabeth Breckenridge sets sail for Alaska in search of her missing brother; but when disaster strikes and she falls overboard, it is a man very unlike her minister brother who comes to the rescue… Clint Brady is a cynical bounty hunter who shoots to kill, but together he and Elizabeth will have to put aside their differences in order to survive the beautiful yet unforgiving Alaskan frontier. However, we soon learn that the past would prove a much more sinister enemy to the pair than any harsh terrain. This is a first time regular print hardcover previously available in a mass market edition.

Booklist
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.

This book was amazing. When I first started reading, I din't know if it was a book that i could read but, as I continued reading I absoloutely fell in love with it especially Clint. I have always been a history buff and i enjoy reading books based in the 1800's my aunt gave me this book to read when I first started showing an advid intrest in reading and books (I am only 15yrs old) so i have to say that this book is amazing and the author really portrayed the characters as people that we can get into and think and really feel what they are going through especially when Clint and Elizabeth are traviling in the winter through snow and hardships that we today don't have to face and i really got into the book and felt for the characters. this book was an awsome read i've read it three time so far....I think Bittener should continue with Clint and Elizabet's story as well as the other characters like Peter and Summer as well as Collette.

I picked this one up because I had read a few of Rosanne Bittners books before and really enjoyed them. The plot for this one was good and the character development kept me turning the page, but overall its a little too sappy for my taste. There is absolutely NO sex, so you can hand this one off to your young readers and not worry about that, of course for your older readers it leaves alot to be desired.
