Book review: With Endless Sight

I can't say no to a free book. Call it a genetic defect (or character trait), but my love of reading and of a bargain beg me to say yes when a free book is offered. That's how I ended up reading "With Endless Sight," by Allison Pittman. Here's the summary...

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.

Brilliant literature? No, but if you're looking for some light, easy, "beach reading" (as some call it), this book is an enjoyable read that will entertain you.
