Dakota Kelly wants her painful past to disappear. A plan to start afresh is derailed when she co-inherits her late grandfather’s farm with Chance Johnson, the man responsible for the scars on her heart. But Chance isn’t the only ghost from the past. Someone else is out to get her and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Will Chance and Dakota lay aside their grudges to restore the old farmhouse and bridge, or will evil forces sabotage their attempt at forgiveness.
A Bridge Unbroken is the fifth book in the Miller Creek Series, but the first of the series I have read. Each book is a standalone story with a special theme. This books theme is forgiveness. While Dakota and Chance have a history that left them both with hurt feelings, it is evident that they still care a lot of each other and that those feelings are growing as they spend time together. Forgiving is not always easy and with Mama Beth, Matt, Chance’s best friend, and his wife, Gracie’s, help and guidance they work to get through what is keeping them from moving on.
There is romance in this book, but it is not mushy fake romance. It is love, true love. As a reader I could feel the pull between Chance and Dakota but I could also see how hurt they both were. Forgiveness and acceptance of the past was exactly what their relationship was in need of but getting there was not easy.
Cathy Bryant is an author I will be reading more of. She wrote a story from the heart that is touching and inspirational. I highly recommend that fans of Christian Romance and Christian Fiction check out this book and the entire series.
