WITH ENDLESS SIGHT

by

Allison Pittman

SUMMARY:

Belleville, Illinois and Wyoming Territories, 1861

Born into a life of privilege, fourteen-year-old Belinda never questions her security, even as she leaves Illinois with her family to discover new adventures in the Oregon Territory. But when disaster falls, Belinda is left wounded, weak, and alone. Her faith in God gives her the only strength she knows in a harsh new world.

Belinda’s journey takes her to a snow-covered mining camp and a red-roofed brothel in the Wyoming mountains, but not before she must spend a lonely winter with the man who took away the life she knew. Throughout the grief and hope of a strange land, Belinda must decide if her faith is big enough to allow her to forgive.

The satisfying conclusion to the Crossroads of Grace series, With Endless Sight offers a rich story of family, new beginnings, and the freedom that grace can bring.

AUTHOR BIO:

Allison Pittman is the award-winning author of Ten Thousand Charms and Speak Through the Wind. Before her recent success in fiction writing, Allison spent seventeen years teaching high school English. Now a full-time writer, Allison serves as the director of her church’s Theater Arts Group ministry. She lives in Texas with her husband, Mike, and their sons.


MY COMMENTS:

Allison Pittman is another masterful author of historical fiction. With the first book, Ten Thousand Charms, I was drawn into this series, and each book touched my heart as I followed the lives of these 19th century women. With Endless Sight was no exception. Belinda's life is forever changed in a heartwrenching moment on the trail west, and she is forced to begin a new journey - one that will compel her to search for a faith that will give her the strength to rise above her circumstances. This series is aptly named Crossroads of Grace as it reminds us that sometimes a dead end is only an opportunity to turn down a new path.

Be sure to check out Allison's website, including a special page devoted to this series and the historic Wyoming settlement that inspired it.

Let me be the first to say..sign me up! Is this a book that you have to read the first books in the series or does it stand alone?

I love what you said about dead ends becoming opportunities to turn down new paths. Awesome insight.

This book stands alone. The lives of the women intersect in their common living situation, but each of the books is the story of how they ended up where they are and where they go from there. Having read the third one just makes me want to go back and reread the others to refresh my memory on the other women's stories.
