Set in the magnificent Oregon ranching country, Beyond The Promise explores the powerful ties that bind families together, the wrenching conflicts that tear them apart, and the passions that drive one unforgettable woman to risk everything for a destiny more surprising than her wildest dreams. Cat Browning's moment of triumph has finally come in a Boston courtroom. A brilliant young lawyer with a promising future, she's just won her first big criminal case. But the painful realization that her skills have gotten a murderer off scott-free make her question the direction her life has taken. Putting her ambitions on the back burner, she decides to join her best friend Annie on a vacation in the tiny town of Cougar Valley, Oregon -- 3,000 miles and a world away. While the majestic splendor of eastern Oregon's ranch lands and the warm intimacy of small-town life cast a spell on Cat, it is her idyllic romance with the irresistible Scott McCullough, Cougar Valley's golden boy, that truly captures her heart. Cat is smitten, yet chooses to chalk it up to a whirlwind romance -- until Scott turns up on her Boston doorstep to take her back to the place she so quickly learned to love. Marriage to Scott is only the beginning of Cat's remarkable journey. Soon, she is swept into the complex heart of the McCullough clan, where she'll forge strong bonds with Red, her larger-than-life father-in-law; his elusive wife, Sarah; Jenny, Scott's fiercely independent grandmother; and Torie, his headstrong sister, who is determined to marry a man both families are dead set against. But when tragedy strikes and Cat suddenly finds herself a widow pregnant with Scott's baby, she must fight her way back from despair to make a new life for herself and her child. Through it all, her love and friendship with the McCulloughs will endure -- even as she finds romance with a new man. But when long-held family secrets threaten to destroy her happiness, Cat is faced with the most difficult choices of her life ... choices that test her true loyalties and shape the future of her unique destiny. A sweeping novel from a master storyteller, Beyond The Promise takes readers into a world of natural beauty and savage elements, of love and loss, laughter and tears -- where one remarkable heroine must find the passionate determination to embrace her most intimate dreams and the wisdom to know where her heart truly lies

"The Moon Below is the sweeping saga of Hallie Morgan, who, in the early 1800s, sailed to Australia, halfway around the world from her native England, not knowing where she was going, to join a man she had seen only twice, when she was a child. Here she would find a country that brought her soul to life, a sun-drenched land of opportunity, peopled by convicts that England had no room for at home. She, along with the prisoners and ex-convicts, would help found a new country, a new continent, and -- based on actual historical facts -- founded the sheep industry that would make the continent famous. Here she led others to freedom. Here she fought for justice and the plight of women who walked off the ships that brought them to this new land. If it had not been for her, they would have lived lives of poverty and abuse. History tells us that single-handedly two woman actually did all this. But the author has given these attributes to Hallie, who has a far different personality than either of the two historical women on which Bickmore bases this sprawling novel. Australia, in the early 1800s, was a land of unbelievable opportunity, big skies, animals and natives like the world had never seen before, of seemingly endless land, wide open spaces and surreal landscapes. It fostered cruelty as well as kindness, despair as well as hope, love as well as tragedy, opportunities that were surprising and never before experienced before by anyone, any place." -- Back cover

DISTANT STAR , an epic tale of passion in a land of rebellion, is a panoramic novel of the Chinese revolution, and the American journalist who lives and loves through its turbulent years ... a brave and beautiful woman whose life is touched by four very different men. DISTANT STAR takes place in China over a 25 year period, beginning in 1923. China is a far cry from the exotic land Chloe Cavanaugh envisioned, but she is married to the Chicago Times' most famous correspondent, and this squalid, teeming land is her new home. DISTANT STAR tells the story of a strange, forbidden land and the courage of a woman whose enthusiasm and dedication leads her on an unforgettable odyssey. Love brings Chloe to a life and land she could never have imagined at a turbulent time in history. Here she is befriended by people who will change the world, not ever dreaming that this is her destination, too. Like all Bickmore heroines, Chloe begins life as an average girl and faces head on the slings and arrows that life throws at her. Tragedy strikes too often; history envelops her and she is involved in a journey unlike any a woman has faced before. And she meets four totally different men who help to shape her destiny. In DISTANT STAR you will see the forces that have shaped one of today's most important countries, and you will participate in the forces that shape one of Bickmore's most compelling heroines." -- Back cover
Im Jahr des Elefanten : Roman by Barbara Bickmore( Book )

"Dr. Quentin Coopersmith of Seattle, is the head of HEAL, a worldwide medical organization devoted to helping to save those in third world countries that have no medical aid. He talks Dr. Courtney McCloud, herself a native African, into leaving her decades old clinic in southern Zimbabwe and going to the border of Mozambique, the poorest country on earth, where a 17 year old war still wages. No one seems to understand what it's about, but hundreds and even thousands are fleeing into Zimbabwe, without anything except what is on their backs. Accompanying her is her close friend and nurse, an Irish nun, Sister Mara. Together they set up a clinic to help these refugees, fleeing from a country the world has ignored for too many years to find salvation offered by two women in the midst of nowhere. In the midst of this human tragedy they discover poachers who kill elephants and leave their bodies to rot so that they can have their ivory tusks, sold to Asia as an aphrodisiac. The elephant population is being devastated, and Africa is losing its unique animal. West of the Moon is the story of the nobility of the human spirit, of people whose rewards are not monetary, who spend their lives putting others first and in so doing reach an heroic level, and in the middle of the war, find love. It shows how even just a few people can make a big difference. Although West of the Moon is a sequel to East of the Sun, it stands alone, taking place ten years after the first book ended. It is a story, again, of Africa, a colossal and little-known continent, and of Dr. Courtney McCloud, a unique and inspiring woman." -- Back cover
