The Kissing Bridge~ Amish Book Review

I have so enjoyed reading this series from Tricia Goyer. She is a great author.  This is the third book in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors Series.

In this this book Rebecca loves her Amish life and does not want to leave it. The death of her sister has forever changed her life. Her desire to help save her people from harm by becoming a nurse is not something she can give up.

So with no other choice she hides the fact that she has been working on her requirements to go to College to become a nurse. Hurting her mother and father is not something she wants to do but feels she has no choice. She decides she must leave home but she will return one day to help her people.

Only a stop to visit an old friend complicates her life even more. There really is no room in her life for a  a handsome Amish man running from his own issues. How can Caleb fit into her already uncertain life? She must get to college and get her nursing degree and leave Caleb behind too.

I had a hard time getting into this story at first but really enjoyed it once it caught my attention. I rate the book 4 stars. I love that is is a continuing story!

Book Description

In the third book in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series, award-winning author Tricia Goyer introduces a surprising new resident to West Kootenai as a young woman escapes from her stifling conservative Amish community to find a new life. Rebecca is an Amish woman whose pained past compels her to leave everything to become a nurse—abandoning her family and community. Caleb is an Amish man who is counting down the days until hunting season. At a crossroads in his own life, the excitement of hunting game is all he looks forward to. All the while he wonders what to do with the rest of his life. Even though he likes the Amish lifestyle, what good is an Amish man without faith in God?
An unexpected meeting pushes them together, and they embark with friends on a two-week-long wilderness wagon journey. Hardship tears down the flimsy walls of protection they've placed around their hearts, and as their friendship grows they open up to each other and eventually reveal their deepest secrets. While on the outside they appear to be traditional Amish people, inside they both know they are anything but that. Will their secrets pull them together or draw them apart? And will their faith in God grow? There is a bridge to cross at the end of the journey. Will true love take them across?
