The Kissing Bridge By Tricia Goyer Review

Book Description

In the third book in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series, award-winning author Tricia Goyer introduces a surprising new resident to West Kootenai as a young woman escapes from her stifling conservative Amish community to find a new life. Rebecca is an Amish woman whose pained past compels her to leave everything to become a nurse—abandoning her family and community. Caleb is an Amish man who is counting down the days until hunting season. At a crossroads in his own life, the excitement of hunting game is all he looks forward to. All the while he wonders what to do with the rest of his life. Even though he likes the Amish lifestyle, what good is an Amish man without faith in God?
An unexpected meeting pushes them together, and they embark with friends on a two-week-long wilderness wagon journey. Hardship tears down the flimsy walls of protection they've placed around their hearts, and as their friendship grows they open up to each other and eventually reveal their deepest secrets. While on the outside they appear to be traditional Amish people, inside they both know they are anything but that. Will their secrets pull them together or draw them apart? And will their faith in God grow? There is a bridge to cross at the end of the journey. Will true love take them across?
My Review:
I liked this book because Rebecca and Caleb were so much alike. They were both ready to leave their Amish community because they thought that the grass was greener on the other side. What they did not count on was God having a plan fo them. God threw them together on a journey that only they could take. The more they traveled they realized that they were running away from their past only to discover their future. In order to plan for the future they must first tell each other the secrets of their pasts. This was a really good story. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review from BookLook Bloggers, however all opinions are my own.
