    Abra was abandoned as a newborn. Pastor Zeke found her under the bridge where she had been placed. He, his wife, Marianne, and their son, Joshua became her foster family. She loved them and they loved her. When she was five, Marianne died. Zeke thought she would be better off in a family with two parents, so she was adopted by her best friend's parents. She learned to play the piano from her mother, then took lessons from Mitzi, an older woman with a colorful personality. Mitzi recognized the unhappiness in Abra and tried to encourage her. Abra learned hymns, even memorizing the words. Mitzi wanted Abra to learn the words, so no matter what happened in her life, she would always remember them. Despite being loved by her foster and adoptive familes, Mitzi and others, Abra felt out of place and unwanted.

    At 16, her sister Penny became infatuated with an older boy. Dylan was 21, drove a red corvette, was handsome and knew it, and took what he wanted. Abra felt an immediate attraction to him. Dylan convinced her to leave her family, and her little town, and run away with him. Since she felt no one would miss her anyway, she left with him. For her, it was love. For him, another conquest.

    Even though this is a book of fiction, it contains real life situations. Feelings of abandonment, loss, heartache, guilt, forgiveness, and love are what many of us experience at some point in our lives. The characters in this book experience these as well. The book held my interest as I wondered what decisions Abra would make, and how far she would go to receive the love and acceptance she craved. Some scenes were a little too intimate, in my opinion, but overall I enjoyed reading Bridge to Haven.

    Good book, but not Francine Rivers best

    I have loved almost all of Francine Rivers books, however this was probably one of the least compelling, and I did find the detail that went into some of the more intimate thoughts and scenes was a bit over the top.

    I did enjoy the book over all, and would reccomend it with reservations depending on the audience.

    Francine Rivers has done it again ! I cannot put this down. What an example of God's unconditional love and how He pursues us always with that love. I will pass this on, .

    Good Story But Lacking a Little

    I just finished the Mark of the Lion series and Redeeming Love which were amazing and then I got Bridge to Haven. The story kept me interested but it wasn't as good as the others. I felt like it was lacking something but I'm not even sure what it was. I did desire more scripture in it and maybe a little more about Abra's spiritual life before she ran away. I sort of felt like she became a Christian out of the blue. But it's still was a good story and I will still continue to read Francine Rivers.

    This book contains stuff that should not be in Christian fiction. Do not read it!
