Publisher's Description

In the dead-end Canadian town of Bleak Landing, twelve-year-old Irish immigrant Bridget O’Sullivan lives in a ramshackle house and dreams of another life, even as the Great Depression rages. Routinely beaten by her father and bullied by schoolmate Victor Harrison, the waifish yet fiery redhead vows to run away and never return. Just a few short years later, run she does—fleeing the unspeakable repercussions of her father’s gambling. In Winnipeg, Bridget lands a job at a garment factory, the first step on her journey to shed her past and begin anew.

When her father dies, Bridget—now a striking and accomplished woman—returns home to claim her inheritance. But she has no identification to prove her stake, and no one in town recognizes her—except Victor, who has become a pastor and a candidate for town mayor. Though war has wounded him, his secret affection for Bridget remains, and now he’s the only one who can help her prove her integrity. But can he also prove he’s a changed man worthy of her forgiveness?

As Victor preaches of freedom in faith, will his words spark Bridget’s once-hopeless heart and lead her to the life she’s been seeking?

    Terrie Todd weaves an evocative story of grit and determination. I love the way this author spins a tale. It's so easy for me to slide back in time and into the shoes of the heroine.

    Bleak Landing is the kind of epic tale that illustrates triumph over adversity and delivers an awesome stand-up-and-cheer ending. It starts when Bridget is twelve during the great depression and carries through into the war years. This heroine has a wretched start in life but she possesses an indomitable spirit that serves her well as she strikes out on her own at a tender age. I rejoiced over her resolute courage to change her life but my heart ached for the emotional wounds that keep her distanced from living life fully. Her journey towards self-acceptance is inspiring and that includes her struggles with God and her very narrow concept of faith.

    Victor was the bane of her childhood existence. He was really awful in all the ways nasty boys can be. Something he feels bad about as he grows older, but Bridget disappears before he finds the courage to seek out forgiveness. It's years before they reconnect and he becomes her unexpected ally as she faces the ultimate bully in her hometown aptly named Bleak Landing.

    An enthralling Women's Fiction/Romance hybrid that totally captivated me.
