Janice GareyDecatur, GAAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5A Bridge Worth Going OverJune 15, 2013Janice GareyDecatur, GAAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Bridging Two Hearts by Michelle Ule is the engaging story of two characters, Josh and Amy, whose lives have been shaped by earlier traumatic events as young people before they knew each other. Josh's earlier devastating event has propelled him into a career of helping others so they will not be harmed by "bad guys". Amy's earlier devastating event has paralyzed her so that she fears bridges and thus arranges her life around avoiding bridges instead of overcoming her fear.
They both have some issues affecting how they respond to each other. It's as if they are circling each other in a combination of, "stay away from me," and, "I sure do like what I see in you." For the reader, it is quite an amusing emotional dance to watch. As the story develops, the reasons behind their responses to each other become apparent and make their quirky expressions believable. They and their friends are lovable characters who pull you into their lives, make you want to know each of their pasts that brought them to their presents, and cause your heart to desire that they are able to conquer their fears and find freedom to move forward.
Several features of this story made it of particular interest to me. First, the setting of the story came to life through Michelle Ule's thorough and accurate portrayal of an area I have never visited. It is worth reading the story for the chance to virtually visit this locale. Secondly, I knew SEALS were deserving of great respect, but I did not know much about them except for a few big news stories in which they were heros. This story gives a more intimate picture of what they do and how they put their lives on the line. Third, I appreciated the way the Christian faith was woven into the story in a realistic manner. The story showed how people are helped in troubled times by turning to God in prayer.
Josh and Amy's romantic relationship slowly brews in an enchanting manner as the obstacles of the character's lives are revealed, discussed and dismantled. I found this process to be necessary to properly tell the story of these worthy characters. Their hesitation in quickly advancing the romance added depth and believability to the stories and personalities.
This book, as well a Michelle Ule's story in the Log Cabin Christmas book, makes me want to read more of her stories. I do hope she will write a continuance of this story about Josh and Amy. Yes, we definitely need more about what the future holds for them! I want more SEALed with a Josh and Amy kiss!
