Bridge to Destiny by April Marie Libs

3 Star

Avery Lawson’s life, once so perfect, spins out of control, not once, but twice in twelve months. Not only does she lose the only man she has ever loved, fate threatens to take her next greatest treasure, her four-year-old daughter, Hannah. 

BRIDGE TO DESTINY is a heartwarming story that chronicles the struggles a single mom has to endure with her tenacious, headstrong daughter who is fighting to regain all of her motor skills from a head injury. During her daughter’s recovery, Avery stumbles into an unforeseen relationship with her neurologist, Nathan Banst, first professionally, and then personally, when she sends him an inappropriate text message after a night out drinking. Although mortified, this pushes Avery into a more personal relationship with Nathan, but is it too soon after her husband's death?

I wish I could have said I enjoyed this book more but it really seemed a bit unbelievable at times though I suppose some people's lives may have multiple tragedies. But for Avery to go through her own trauma of losing her husband and being injured in a car accident to go to having their only child be seriously injured falling off of a ladder? It seemed like a bit much at times and I didn't find myself buying the story which I found unfortunate.

April Marie Libs seems like a promising author and I enjoyed a lot of her writing but the story wasn't told consistently throughout. What I mean by that is that sometimes there was an abundance of detail and other times, I felt that more could have been better. 

The story was not a bad one but it left me feeling unsatisfied and disappointed. I was expecting more and felt let down but I am sure this story may be very enjoyable for others to read.

Thank you to the author for our review copy.  All opinions are our own.
