Book Review - "The Kissing Bridge"

Book Description from the publisher:

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?

My Review:
"The Kissing Bridge," written by Tricia Goyer, is the third book in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series and it is a wonderful addition to this series!  Rebecca has been living a secret life since her sister passed away as Rebecca is determined to help others avoid the complications that her sister did giving birth and decides to go to enroll in collage for nursing school.  However, Rebecca is Amish and this would not be accepted by her parents and community. Finally the time has come for Rebecca to leave home, really leave, not just living her double life that she has been.  As Rebecca begins this journey she encounters some complications, one being a man named Caleb. Caleb is also trying to find his place in the world as he is torn between his Amish community and the English world. This is such a sweet story and journey that these two individuals are on in their lives and I highly recommend this to fans of Amish fiction. It is a well written story and the characters were easy to empathize with; this is one you will not want to miss!
