Rebecca is leaving her Amish community in Indiana to pursue a nursing career in Portland, Oregon. On her way to Portland she feels led to stop and visit her friend Marianna in Montana. There she meets Caleb, a young Amish man with a sense of adventure and daredevil. Both Caleb and Rebecca are keeping secrets that could jeopardize any further relationship between them.
I enjoyed THE KISSING BRIDGE. The relationship between Caleb and Rebecca had its ups and downs of course. I admired Rebecca for her desire to become a nurse no matter what it took. I liked how the author portrayed both characters struggles with their Amish upbringing and a more personal relationship with God. And I liked being able to once again visit this community where Marianna and Ben have settled. If you haven't read any of the Seven Brides For Seven Bachelors series you must remedy that along with A Big Sky novels where Marianna's story unfolds.
It's always fun to read a book that is part of a continuing story.
And I really hope we get 7 books out of this series!
Tricia Goyer certainly has a deep well of story lines. Each book of hers that I have read is clearly original. There is no feel of having read the same story in a slightly different form over and over again.
Tricia continues the story that began with The Memory Jar - beautifully in The Kissing Bridge. We see some familiar characters and we meet new ones.
And we get to enjoy the familiar surroundings colored through the views of different people and their experiences.
In fact, I recently read another story that is at least loosely attached to this series and it was equally wonderful.
Tricia Goyer wrote a novella for An Amish Garden called Seeds of Love. It was about the Amish of West Kootenai, Montana as well.
The Kissing Bridge is the third book in this series and it is just as enjoyable a read as the first two.
If you enjoyed The Memory Jar and The Promise Box, you will enjoy The Kissing Bridge!
And I am certain that, if you are a fan of Tricia Goyer's writing, you will love this book!

I enjoyed this book very much. Tricia Goyer shows us over and over how talented she is. This story was a bit different than most Amish stories. It doesn't center on the Amish faith, so much with all the rules and regulations. But the story centers on the people, and their faith in Christ. Very interesting story, and definitely a story to share with your friends and family. It was wonderful to connect with Marianna and Ben again too. I love when we get to glimpse into the lives of characters from former books. 4.5 stars from this reviewer.

Oh, Tricia did great with this book! I loved the characters in this story, there were a few from the first two books in the series, and I love Millie's "God Box". There is a lot going on in this book and Tricia keeps you wanting to keep on reading. There is a wonderful ending too! I'm guessing there are more books coming in this series and I am anxiously waiting for it, it's not even listed anywhere yet so she's keeping us guessing on that I guess.
