Bridge to Haven Book Review


About the Book

To those who matter in 1950s Hollywood, Lena Scott is the hottest rising star to hit the silver screen since Marilyn Monroe. Few know her real name is Abra. Even fewer know the price she's paid to finally feel like she's somebody.

To Pastor Ezekiel Freeman, Abra will always be the little girl who stole his heart the night he found her, a wailing newborn abandoned under a bridge on the outskirts of Haven. Zeke and his son, Joshua--Abra's closest friend--watch her grow into an exotic beauty. But Zeke knows the circumstances surrounding her birth etched scars deep in her heart, scars that leave her vulnerable to a fast-talking bad boy who proclaims his love and lures her to Tinseltown.

Hollywood feels like a million miles from Haven, and naive Abra quickly learns what's expected of an ambitious girl with stars in her eyes. But fame comes at an awful price. She has burned every bridge to get exactly what she thought she wanted. Now, all she wants is a way back home.

In this riveting and highly anticipated tale of temptation, grace, and unconditional love, "New York Times" best-selling author Francine Rivers delivers big-canvas storytelling at its very best. (Goodreads)

My Review

I couldn't wait for this book to come out! I love Francine Rivers, while some of her books are better than others, they really are all good. One of my favorite books ever is Redeeming Love by Francine and this book is a close second behind! I think this was a midnight book for me as I couldn't put it down. I love the characters and the setting. I love how real this book is and how Francine creates characters with such emotional depth. I wanted to cry and laugh many times throughout the book. I also really like how the era of the 1950s is portrayed, it gave me a good look into that time period. 

★★★★★, I loved it.

I highly recommend!! It's one of River's best!
