Product Description

To those who matter in 1950s Hollywood, Lena Scott is the hottest rising star to hit the silver screen since Marilyn Monroe. Few know her real name is Abra. Even fewer know the price she's paid to finally feel like she's somebody. To Pastor Ezekiel Freeman, Abra will always be the little girl who stole his heart the night he found her, a wailing newborn abandoned under a bridge on the outskirts of Haven, a sleepy little town in Northern California. Zeke and his son, Joshua-Abra's closest friend-watch her grow into an exotic beauty. But Zeke knows the circumstances surrounding her birth etched scars deep in her heart, scars that leave her vulnerable to a fast-talking bad boy who proclaims his love and lures her to Tinseltown. Hollywood feels like a million miles from Haven, and naive Abra quickly learns what's expected of an ambitious girl with stars in her eyes. But fame comes at a devastating price. She has burned every bridge to get exactly what she thought she wanted. Now, all she wants is a way back home.

    This review was written for Bridge to Haven.
    "Bridge to Haven" tells the story of Abra, lovely but wounded. As a baby, she is abandoned under a bridge where the local preacher finds her. He and his wife adopt her, even though he has misgivings--his wife's health isn't good and he doesn't think she can handle the demands of a baby... then a toddler... then the high-spirited little girl Abra becomes. Her adopted mother dies and her daddy gives her away to some family friends. My heart broke for Abra. After some time, the only daddy she ever knew doesn't even seem to want to see her anymore! Later, as the story unfolded, I was on the edge of my seat as I turned every page. I was gripped with Abra's life as she searched for love and approval from everyone. She put herself on a pedestal, she sought perfection, she tried to please those closest to her to earn their love.

    As a teenager and later as a young woman, Abra doesn't feel at all like she belongs in her small town of Haven. She ends up in Hollywood, pursuing stardom, living a life giving into any temptation she feels like giving into, essentially trying to fill her heart with something... anything... anyone... who might be able to fill it. After she ends up burning every bridge back to Haven, she realizes she wants to go back but it seems impossible. The story is riveting and, in the end, it has such a message of hope! In my own life, I recently made quite a mess of a certain something but God has been filling my heart with hope just as He showed Abra in this story--hope that He can somehow turn the mess she made into some part of His beautiful plan, and the truth that He can replace "sorrow and shame" with "everlasting joy" (Isaiah 61:7). Abra seemed real, I loved her, she felt more like a "friend" than most book characters I've met, and reading her story was a blessing to my heart.

    I enjoyed this book so much! Read it!!

    This book was very wierd to me. I did not like the plotline. It was too much horrible things happening to the main character that were very unpleasant to read. Only read if you are firmly established in your faith, because it could sway you.

    As a Francine Rivers fan I love everything she has written and this novel is no exception. There was an unexpected twist at the end that I did not see coming, so Mrs. Rivers continues to inspire, encourage and challenge me. I confess at first I thought this novel was just "Redeeming Love" set in a different time period. As I read on, I felt it was a metaphor for the prodigal son. In the final pages/author notes I learned the idea for this novel is Ezekiel 16. Francine Rivers is just "awesomely amazing"! She continues to "out do" herself with each novel. I highly recommend to all!

    This review was written for Bridge to Haven.
    I love some of Francine Rivers's books, but sad to say, not this one. As it's being distributed as a Christian book, I think it should come with a warning about the content. I was also disappointed in the publisher for allowing so much graphic portrayal of sin in this book. Of course God forgives those who repent and this was clearly shown in the story. But while the reader can know of the sins, it isn't necessary to actually walk the reader through the details in the scenes and especially the intimate scenes. The story line itself shows God's mercy and forgiveness and love to sinners. I just think the reader needs to be aware of the content--especially before passing it on to young ladies.
