Welcome to Wishing Bridge
Ruth Logan Herne
WELCOME TO WISHING BRIDGE is the first book in the Wishing Bridge series. To be honest, I fell in love with the cover the minute I saw it. I knew I would read it anyway, because I love Ruth Logan Herne, but the cover really pulled me in. I loved everything about this beautiful story and I’m excited to continue the series. Ruth Logan Herne always has a way of grabbing her readers and she never lets us go. Kelsey is on her way to Harrisburg Pennsylvania to an adoption agency. She is a single mother to be and the baby’s father conned her. She is in no position to have a baby and decides to give her up for adoption so she can have a better life than the one Kelsey had.
While driving in a bad storm on her way to Harrisburg, Kelsey knows conditions have deteriorated too much for her to continue. She pulls off the highway, goes too fast down a hill and winds up in a ditch in Wishing Bridge, New York. Somehow, someway, a lady who lives in that area, Maggie, looks up just at that moment from her living room and sees Kelsey’s car lights disappear. WELCOME TO WISHING BRIDGE finds Kelsey being rescued, giving birth to her beautiful daughter in a firehouse, and a 911 call going out to her two best friends that she grew up with in foster care.
Kelsey’s habitual liar of a mother always told her she was from Wishing Bridge, but Kelsey doesn’t know if that is a lie or not. While she is there recovering she finds her way to the local library to see what she can learn about her mother or any family that might still be in Wishing Bridge. Well, that opens a whole can of worms and Kelsey finds it all blowing up in her face through no fault of her own.
WELCOME TO WISHING BRIDGE is filled with twists and turns and had me staying up way too late one night to finish! I had to know where Ruth Logan Herne was taking us and what would happen to Kelsey. I really loved how the whole community came to Kelsey’s aid and only wanted her to feel safe and welcome! Well, almost everyone. There is so much heart in Ruth’s writing that I’m always left with a huge smile on my face and my heart very happy. I could totally see WELCOME TO WISHING BRIDGE becoming a Hallmark movie and I would love to see it.
HAVE A GREAT DAY AND THANK YOU FOR READING!
