Fiction from the Ragged Edge of Faith
When Marcella Seppa meets her new tenant, widower Drew Smith, a spark ignites, but she won't consider dating him. She doesn't want his son, AJ, to experience the hurt she felt when her dad remarried shortly after her mom died. Her faith unraveled, and she threw herself into exercise and gardening instead of forming trusting relationships.
When Drew finds out he may not be AJ's biological father, his first instinct is to leave Copper Island, but he wants to find out the truth. He seeks out Marcella's support.
Across the Bridge was my favorite book in the Copper Island series. I loved every single moment of this book by Kristin. She did a fantastic job with this book. I felt right at home turning the pages. The story line was fast paced as inhaled this book from beginning to end. The story was deep and meaningful, but can also be read as a standalone if you haven't been able to read the entire series, but I highly recommend reading the entire series. It is much richer of a story line if you are able to read the series. I love how Kristin doesn't shy away from difficult discussions in her books either like suffering or where is God in the suffering? She makes her characters real, which makes all of her books so much more relatable and enjoyable as a reader.
I give this book 5/5 stars. Thank you to the publisher for providing me a complimentary copy. A favorable review was not required.
