From the Vault

HSB720 Bridge Across the Sea

From the Back Cover:

Peter Caldwell can't remember the night he lost his mother, but he's sure someone else will. When the Titanic went down, many were affected, and Peter is counting on some of the survivors to help him figure out who he really is. But when he meets a young woman who was also on board that night, he begins to see that God may have bigger plans than just finding his past.

Melissa Reynolds loves the people and the atmosphere of New York City, but not the crime. So when crime boss Guido takes his interest in her a step further, Melissa wants to flee. But before she can run far, she finds a young British man looking for help.

Can these two young survivors face the past and what it holds? Is this the Lord's way of making a bridge across the sea?

Key Verse:
“Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.” Psalm 77:19

From the book:

Aghast, Melissa stood at the restaurant entrance and gaped at the tall stranger who stepped into the line of fire just as she threw Guido’s gift back at his messenger.

The go-between seized the opportunity to duck into his flashy black Lincoln and take off like a shot.

With his hand cupped over one eye, the stranger glanced at the retreating car, shifted his attention to the chocolate bonbons strewn over the ground, and then looked at Melissa. If she hadn’t felt so awful for nailing him with the candy box, she might have giggled at the completely bamboozled expression on his face. A nice face, a part of her mind noted.

“I’m so sorry. Are you okay?”

His gaze dropped to the chocolates once more, then lifted to her. “Not your particular choice of flavor?”

Question of the day: I'll confess, I haven't seen James Cameron's Titanic movie. Anyone else here not seen it? I'm not a DiCaprio fan, and I don't like movies that don't have a happy ending.


  1. Ok, I'll admit it. I've never seen Titanic either. Don't like sad stories much.

  2. OH, MY GOODNESS!!! TITANIC IS MY FAVORITE MOVIE!!! You have to see it!! Even though the ending is not happy, it's a powerful romance story....I loved it!! Went to the theater to see it twice when it was out, bought the video as soon as it came out...purchased the DVD after that!! I don't gush over movies much, don't buy movies much, don't go to movies much, so you know this is a good story, it is long though...

    It was after seeing Titanic that I was bound and determined to write a Titanic story with a *happy* ending (well as happy as I could do realistically- lol)- Thus, 'Til We Meet Again was created...
    my first book with Heartsong. :)
