Behind every story of loss is the promise of grace.…
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.

“With Endless Sight paints an unforgettable story about the power of love and a young girl’s gritty determination to remain true to God. This stunningly beautiful novel is written with an emotional depth that will touch your heart and remain with you forever.”
- Nancy Jo Jenkins, author of Coldwater Revival
“With Endless Sight sets a tender story against the harsh frontier landscape. Allison Pittman writes the kind of lush details that pull you into another time and place. She’s definitely earned herself a spot on my must-read list!”
- Allie Pleiter, author of My So-Called Love Life
“Once again Allison Pittman has painted a masterpiece with words. With the deft brushstrokes of a master storyteller, Pittman’s canvas is filled with characters and places that will live on long after the last page has been turned. With Endless Sight is not to be missed, for to do so would be to miss an opportunity to see the grace and love of God working through the simple yet complicated faith of those who choose to love Him even in the hardest moments.”
- Kathleen Y'Barbo, best-selling author of Beloved Castaway
“In Speak Through the Wind, Allison Pittman guides her heroine down the dark alleys of New York and through the bustling streets of San Francisco on a harrowing journey toward wholeness. Carefully chosen details and realistic dialogue bring the gritty scenes to life as Kassandra spirals downward, even as her day of redemption draws near.”
- Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Grace in Thine Eyes
“While Speak Through the Wind is beautifully written, wonderfully moving, and a testament to God’s love, it suffers from the following: It is highly incompatible with mascara (waterproof or otherwise), getting one’s children to school ahead of the tardy bell, and putting dinner on the table. I simply could not put it down.”
- Tamara Leigh, author of Perfecting Kate and Splitting Harriet
“Pittman beautifully articulates the depths of despair and hopelessness that often arrive with disappointment and loss. Her knowledge of history combined with the human component of injustice and suffering is what makes Speak Through the Wind so engaging and compelling. The ultimate message of God’s love and redemption leaves the reader uplifted and encouraged.”
- Romantic Times Magazine
“Allison Pittman is absolutely one of the best writers I have encountered this year. Her writing style presents you with memorable characters who grab hold of your heart. ”
- MyShelf.com for Speak Through the Wind
“Ten Thousand Charms is a terrific tale of love and redemption that grabs you and won’t let go. It will leave you like it left me, anxious to see this author’s future work.”
- James Scott Bell, best-selling author of Presumed Guilty
“If you took Francine Rivers’s classic Redeeming Love and merged it with Janette Oke’s quaint, prairie style, you could almost envision the masterpiece Allison Pittman has created with her poignant tale of God’s redemptive power. If you’re in need of a fresh touch of God’s grace, Ten Thousand Charms is the story for you.”
- Janice Thompson, author of Hurricane
