About the Book

A young woman's desire to serve God leads her on an unexpected journey of the heart…


The year is 1798 and the British Naval Fleet is in the midst of fighting the war with Napoleon Bonaparte's France.  Rebecca Halloway, a young English girl, has been a vibrant Christian for most of her eighteen years, but her faith is about to be tested.  One evening, while walking home from a revival service in her home town of Portsmouth, England, her plans to set out for the mission field are waylaid when she is abducted and stolen away by a group of drunken English sailors.  She finds herself aboard a vessel bound for Portugal, and manages to conceal her identity from the crew until she is able to escape her captors.  Desperate to return home to England, she stows away on the 'Redemption', a massive, British warship under the strict command of Captain William Jameson, a seasoned officer with little tolerance for women.  When her unauthorized presence is revealed, a fierce conflict ensues.  Rebecca wants only to be returned to Portsmouth, where she can continue on with her plans to minister to the lost, while Captain Jameson and his crew aboard the Redemption only want her gone.

About the Author

Erin Heitzmann was raised in Bismarck, North Dakota, and after graduating from high school, spent the next several years in a variety of different places, from as far away as Japan, and as exotic as Hawaii.  Erin finally chose Montana as her home, where she met and married her husband Dean.  She and Dean live in the beautiful Bitteroot Valley near Missoula, where they have raised five wonderful children, the youngest of which is still at home.  Erin served for two years as a Kindergarten teacher at a private Christian school, and remained on staff at the school as a volunteer until their last child started first grade.  Erin then returned to college to pursue a nursing degree, and graduated with honors from Montana State University in 2006.  Erin currently serves as the administrator of an assisted living facility in Missoula, and has discovered that working with the elderly population is both her calling and her passion.  She writes for the sheer pleasure of it, and hopes that you enjoy reading 'Rebecca's Redemption' as much as she has enjoyed writing it.
