Bridge of Hope
by Pam Champagne
Cyn Jenks can't stand the thought of life without her husband, Peter, killed recently in Iraq. As she stands on a bridge contemplating suicide, Peter's spirit appears. She can't believe it's him until he says, “You think killing yourself will make things right?"
Cyn isn't the only one to see Peter's ghost that night. Major Mike Spencer also witnesses the spectacle. And Peter has a request for Mike. "Please take care of her, Sir. She needs your strength."
Pam Champagne's Bridge of Hope is an inspiring, contemporary romance with an amazingly warm yet desperate aura. This story is about more than love, and more than friendship. It is about loss, and suffering, but it is also about how love heals. Its about personal strength, as well as turning to God for strength. It offers amazing parallels to romances during any time of war, the tales of sweethearts, waiting for word ... and reminds us of the costs of war. Memories can cruel--but also kind.
Cynthia, the main character, is utterly bereft, but hope soon steps in, and involves her in the daily life of those who have an abundance of hope. They also need her, nearly as much as she needs them. Champagne's writing is immediate, descriptive, and strong. This is not only a good story, but very well written.
This incredibly well-timed romance will speak to anyone who has ever had to be the one that waited... four books, and more than a few tears...
RATED: FOUR BOOKS
