The Bridge Tender

I did not enjoy the first book I read by Marybeth Whalen, so I thought I would give another one a try.  I am glad I did.  I just finished The Bridge Tender and I loved it!

You meet Emily, a young widow, who is trying to cope with the loss of her husband, Ryan, after barely five years of marriage.  Shortly after Ryan's funeral, Emily learns that her husband had been secretly putting money towards a life insurance policy, in case the unthinkable happened.  Ryan left Emily with $500,000 to buy herself a house at the beach!

A year later, Emily finally heads out to Sunset Beach to purchase a new house.  Emily and Ryan had honeymooned there and had always dreamed of having a home there someday to visit from time to time.  Now Emily needs to find a place to start building her life again!

First, Emily finds a house to call home.  Next, she meets a young girl who is need of some serious help with life.  Finally, she meets a man who has experienced a loss as great as hers!

This is a very enjoyable read as you journey with Emily through this very difficult event in her life.

I received this book from Zondervan in exchange for my unbiased review
