Overview

Promise Bridge by Eileen Clymer Schwab

A powerful debut novel of friendship, love, and family set in the segregated pre-Civil War South.

"This is a promise bridge, and it bridges a promise flowing from your heart to mine. It can't never be broken...the promise is part of you now, understand."

Thus begins an unlikely friendship between Hannelore Blessing, a plantation mistress, and a slave girl named Livie. As the young women are launched on a harrowing journey of awakening filled with shared risks and nurtured promises amid whispers of the Underground Railroad and the rising tension preceding the Civil War, they discover their ability to trust, love, and ultimately take action.

Aided by Colt, a devoted suitor hoping to win her heart, Hannah comes to understand that true friendship means letting go, so that Livie can be free to find a life and destiny all her own. However, a vicious slave catcher stalks the two women-and his unseemly motives and relentless pursuit threaten all that Hannah holds dear, as well as put her loved ones in unimaginable danger.

What a captivating story about a friendship. Who would have beleived that the author could have written a story about a runaway slave and a young women who lives on a southern plantation that one could truly beleive in! Ms. Clymer-Schwab has done just so. I was drawn into the story from the start and could not put the book down until I found out what happened Hannalore, Livie and Colt. The idea of the Promise Bridge is a unique and wonderful concept. I cannot wait for Ms. Clymer-Schwab's next story.
