A story of faith. Rebecca lost a sister and felt called to leave Amish community to pursue nursing. She felt a call to help others so they would not have to die like her sister while she stood by helpless. She stops in Montana to see a friend who had left the Amish community. There Amish and English lived together in a community. She meets Caleb, a risk taker. He wants an Amish wife but one with spunk. Both Rebecca and Caleb find faith in God. This book was what I needed right now as I struggle with God's plans at this point in my life. Rebekah and Caleb marry and remain Amish in an Amish/Mennonite church where they embraced Rebekah being a nurse. Rebekah got the three things she desired. To be a nurse, to marry a good man and to be part of an Amish Church.

Another great book in another great series  -   Oh, Tricia did great with this book! I loved the characters in this story, there were a few from the first two books in the series, and I love Millie's "God Box". There is a lot going on in this book and Tricia keeps you wanting to keep on reading. There is a wonderful ending too! I'm guessing there are more books coming in this series and I am anxiously waiting for it, it's not even listed anywhere yet so she's keeping us guessing on that I guess.

The Kissing Bridge by Tricia Goyer is the kind of story that you shut off your television, cell phone, and computer to getaway from our day. It makes you break away from the day-to-day and pool in a chair and enjoy this story that is unfolding before your eyes. Amish living is so very interesting to me that I always look forward to new stories to devoure as soon as they hit stores. This is the story of Rebecca, a young woman, who is struggling with her Amish living and life threw her a curve with an unexpected death that she took to heart. It became the catalyst for her to leave her community and embark on a life-altering journey that would lead her to where she needs to be and to whom she needs to be with to get back to being her most truest and fulfillest self. This is going to sound terrible, but I enjoy reading the struggles of characters who lose themselves only to eventually find the path that is right for them. I was given a review copy and all thoughts and opinions are my own.

The horrible feeling of helplessness Rebecca felt when her sister died after giving birth has burned a desire in Rebecca’s heart: a desire to help others, a desire to know what to do in the event of a medical emergency, and a desire to fulfill a calling from God. In order to live out those desires, Rebecca must figure out how to fulfill her dream. Will she have to choose between the Amish life and the life of the Englisch? Is there a way to work toward her goal while still living among the Amish? This was an enjoyable read. The first half of the book lays out a great foundation for the sweet, sweet romance that builds in the second half. Caleb and Rebecca have an immediate attraction to one another, but a journey through the wilderness is exactly what they need to realize how God often directs our path even when we think we have our plan all figured out. God has a way of revealing our secrets and opening our hearts to lead us to His plan. Ms Goyer’s use of strong secondary characters helped to develop the story in a unique way. This was a great demonstration of how God uses the ordinary people He places within our lives to help us see what He has laid right at our feet. A special thank you to Tricia Goyer and Zondervan for the opportunity to read and review The Kissing Bridge. A free copy was provided in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are strictly my own and no other compensation has been given in order to obtain a favorable review.

My first book by this author, but not the last! I've read a lot of Amish based Christian stories, but this was the first I had heard of the Montana communities,  let alone the Ohio where Amish & Mennonite live and worship together. Makes me wonder whether they're an invention of the author or real. No spoilers here, but the conflict is resolved and there is a "Happily Ever After."   I received a copy for review from NetGalley, but my thoughts are mine alone.

Rebecca Troyer wants to be a nurse and help her Amish family, friends and neighbors. She has spent a lot of time with English friends, working at an English bakery and tries to keep her secrets from her Amish parents. She has worked and saved for a long time to finish school, take classes and now she wants to go across country to college. On the way she stops in Kootenai, Montana to visit her childhood friend that has left the Amish to marry outside her faith. While there she meets some Amish batchelors that are there to earn their hunting permits and to hunt. Naturally, sparks start to fly between these two. Rebecca doesn't want to tell him that she's leaving the Amish to be a nurse. She doesn't think he will understand. This book is a warm, cozy read with love, friendships, surprises and secrets must come out. Sit back with your favorite tea, coffee, hot chocolate, etc and have a good time reading this entertaining book. Tricia Goyer always has a good storyline, makes the characters believable and this isn't your normal Amish love story. I bought this book and no one asked me to leave a review. If I enjoy a book as much as I did this one then I try to leave reviews that will help others. Tricia Goyer is truly a good author and I've read most of her books. Sit back and enjoy.

Sweet romance and fascinating adventure are intertwined with God’s good word in The Kissing Bridge by Tricia Goyer (Zondervan).This is the  third book in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors Series.The Kissing Bridge stands alone but Tricia Goyer’s writing is so engaging readers  will want to get their eyes on everything she writes. Caleb is a young Amish man from Ohio who promised his dying grandfather he would explore the world before settling down. He finds his way  to West Kootenai, Montana, for a six-month stint of working and hunting. Caleb dreams of finding an Amish girl who shares his love of  adventure; he doesn’t want to spend the rest of his life living a normal routine. Rebecca Troyer, an Amish girl from Shipshewana, Indiana, is leaving her family to go to Oregon for nursing school. Ever since her sister died  in childbirth, Rebecca has been determined to get a nursing education. Rebecca’s family has no idea that she has been sneaking off and  getting her GED and taking on-line college classes. She boards the train for Oregon without telling her family goodbye, knowing they would  try to stop her because the Amish do not believe in education beyond the eighth grade. On the train trip to Oregon, Rebecca decides to stop to visit her ex-Amish friend, Marianna, in West Kootenai, Montana. In Montana, the Amish  and Englischers forge deep and meaningful relationships and consider each other friends. Caleb and Rebecca meet through her visit with  Marianna. Caleb is attracted to Rebecca’s spirit and willingness to travel. He wants to see more of her but she is hesitant since she is  ultimately moving to Oregon and leaving the Amish. Since Rebecca has three weeks before classes begin in Oregon, she agrees to go on a wagon trail trip through the mountains with Caleb  and several other Amish and Englischers from the area. Romance is in the air as Caleb and Rebecca share a wagon in the gorgeous  backwoods of Montana. Rebecca is torn between giving into the desires of her heart and still holding on to her dreams of nursing school. All she knows is she wants to live a life that matters. Tricia Goyer has authored an exquisitely romantic novel. She has carefully and skillfully crafted scenes between Rebecca and Caleb, which  will leave readers starry-eyed. Additionally, Tricia’s stunningly vivid descriptions of the Montana vistas and countryside will dramatically  increase the enjoyment of A Kissing Bridge.

“The Kissing Bridge” by Tricia Goyer is the third book of her 'Seven Brides for Seven Bachelor's' series though it is a great stand alone book. I got so frustrated with this book for frankly I didn't know what to expect from one page to another for nothing was going the way I thought that it should for it wasn't following any predictable path. I never planned on reading this book in one sitting for I planned on being under time constraints of a bedtime, but yeah that was blown to pieces for I just couldn't put this book down for any reason. This book was a path of forks in the road instead of a straight path with a bunch of hurdles that need to be jumped. Here choices frankly had to be made, and they sure weren't easy ones for anyone involved. I so loved the forks in the book that had to be decided on, which is so different then the other two books in the series. I really enjoy series when there is a such a difference in stories where it is so obvious that it not a recycled story line, or the author didn't know what else to do other than reuse a story-line with some differences. The choices that had to be made were not simple ones for any of those involved for they were life changing choices that couldn't be made on a moments notice. Honestly I feared that there were going to be choices that were made on a moments notice because of how the book was progressing (hence the not being predictable in any way, shape or form) but then things took another change. Though attraction is nearly instantaneous between Caleb and Rebecca, I found the way the romance bloomed between them to be so interesting and at the time so sweet. It is almost as if they know that their time is limited so they make the most of their time together without crossing any lines. But that wasn't the end of it and the readers are able to see how things went over periods of time. How they made full use of their time together was also not picture perfect for both Caleb and Rebecca have their own inner issues to be dealt with. It was interesting to see how the choices made affected not just the person making that choice but those around them. How those choices are also long term with long term effects. But I also found the other characters that were part of the story showed how life is not exactly black and white either. That because a person makes a choice that doesn't mean that they are turning their back on God but could actually be one the path that He chooses, and that God is always there for them regardless where they are. The main message that I took away from this book is that regardless what we might fear happen, we need to take that step in faith to follow God completely for then everything will work out so much better. I really hope that all who read this book will enjoy it as much as I did.
