This is my first book by Lisa T. Bergren, but it will not be my last. Wonderful characters and the setting was breathtaking. I felt I was on summer vacation with them. Just what I needed this summer!
Wow, I enjoyed this book! Ok, so maybe I am a little biased here, the book's main location is not only in my home state but is about 2 hours from where I live. Soooo, I am not going to talk about the great scenery descriptions just yet. People first right? There was much to admire in this book about the love of family. In the first pages a mother sacrifices her life for her son. Jared tries to reconcile with his wife, he does want it to to work, it doesn't work but at least he did try one last time. Jared loves his son, more than anything, and willingly spends the summer just the two of them in a little Montana cabin. Eden loves her family as well, she visits her elderly grandmother in the nursing home, not only visits but talks with her and listens to her advice. Eden's brother also makes a protective appearance as do her parents. In the people vein, this book is very emotional. I felt Eden's desire for peace and not wanting to risk her heart again. I felt Jared's fears around water, his love Nicolaus, and the battle he faced in deciding what do about his love for Eden. The author did an excellent job getting into her character's heads and hearts. The 'religious' factor was most definitely present but didn't detract from the story. There is a fine balance of how much to put in a story and how much is too much, and I felt that Lisa, for the most part, didn't go too far either way. OK, NOW I am going to talk about the scenery. Thought I might miss it didn't you? Nope! Since I have been to most of the locations mentioned in the story, gotta look around downtown Bigfork a little more, I can say that the author did a GREAT job. Not only did my little internal movie have plenty to work with you could also tell that the author really had been there, not only been there but loved it. It isn't often you can see an author's love of the place they are writing about but you sure could in The Bridge. So, if you like a good love story or if you just want to take a little vacation to the beautiful State of Montana, The Bridge is an excellent choice for either or both reasons.
Lisa has done it again! This story shows God's never-ending care for our lives! Eden is a woman afraid of venturing out after being badly hurt. Wondering if she will ever be emotionally strong enough to love again. Jared is a man broken from questions of his past. Never really knowing the whole story. Lisa has intertwined in this story the beauties of Montana, and the calming pace of God's creations. She also shows us that when Eden and Jared allow God to lead in their lives, He will give them peace. I highly recommend you purchase this book! You will not be disappointed.
