The Bridge Tender

The Bridge Tender
Marybeth Whalen
 Emily is left devastated and heartbroken when her husband passes away from cancer. But before his death he left her with a strange request and the means to fulfill it. He wants her to purchase a summer house on "their" island. It was their dream and he wants her to go ahead and fulfill it, even though he's gone. Emily finally makes the trip, a year after his death. What she finds on the island goes way beyond a house. She finds healing and a community to belong to.

I've been a fan of this author after I picked up her first book several years ago. Her stories are sweet, even when sad. Beautiful, even when there is tragedy. The imagery alone is worth the read, but the spiritual messages and romance that are woven into the story make it one that is heartwarming as well as convicting. I lived for eight years on the coast of NC and the author does an excellent job of capturing the essence of living on the outer banks. I can't wait to read her next book.

I received this book free of charge from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
