She swore she'd never come back to Wishing Bridge.
She needed nothing. No family. No links to a past that broke her heart. Heather Johnstone was successful in her own right, by her own actions. She'd built a pristine life and gave no one the right or opportunity to disrupt it, but then her father called... the one person who'd loved her. Who'd cared.
And there was no other choice, it seemed.
She'd go back and face a past that was now tragically changed and fairly unimportant, but that's the thing about growing up. You don't always know what's important until it's too late.
Hank Reynolds had spent over a decade trying to inspire change. Change in a shrinking town adjacent to Wishing Bridge, and a school district that serviced several towns. Hank took his teaching and coaching seriously. Seriously enough to help no small number of kids find their way to success, but when a tragic flood takes a major toll on the little town of Hopewell, the aftermath stuns the surrounding communities with the loss of life and livelihood. Who can help? Who can help them re-establish the good old days in a place that had lost their grip on good a long time ago?
Hank knows what the school needs the minute he sees Heather. Northeast Wyoming Central needs an administrator that puts kids first, all the time. Not just when it looks good for a photo op. And when his phone calls bring back more of their high school football teammates, Hank knows something else is happening... Coming back to Wishing Bridge isn't just good for the town and the schools... It's good for the prodigals.
Because whoever said you can't go home again was wrong and Hank Reynolds intends to prove it, but when Heather's life takes a sudden turn, he realizes something else: sacrificial love means putting others first. Even if it's the person you love more than anyone else on the planet.
Grab a cup of coffee, a Coke or a spot of tea and join the folks of Wishing Bridge, NY as they gather folks in to help, to love, to fix, to nurture... Welcome back to Wishing Bridge... where prayers and wishes mingle to make dreams come true.

Tragedy brings Heather back to her hometown, to face her painful upbringing, and perhaps find hope?
An engaging read that pulled me in from the beginning, my heart instantly went out to Heather who has always felt second best in comparison to her sister and has worked hard all her life achieving success along the way. A compelling read, with sparkling characters that you can root for all the way through in this wonderful stand alone read.
I loved getting to know the children, as well as seeing how Hank was so supportive of Heather and her family throughout. He is man of action and faith, and I loved his passion for teaching.
Overall, a thoroughly engaging read with characters that I easily emotionally invested in. A heartwarming, tear-jerking story of second chances, community, faith, and romance. Highly recommend!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Faith and Lucie, thank you so much for your kind words.... I think authors always wonder how characters like Heather will go over... will folks see the amazing woman inside even if she's got a bit of a thick shell? Yes! Thank you for what you said in your wonderful post. I'm so glad you loved it... and my daughter Beth Jamison works with me on all my indie projects, so I know how awesome it is to work with someone you love so much... well, that is, until they disagree with you.ReplyDelete
