‘The Bridge Between Us’ (Road to Refuge, 3) by Victoria Bylin

An Unexpected Reunion . . . A Second Chance at Love
Jesse Donovan is a changed man. Now a Christian and a successful building contractor, he’s dedicated to taking responsibility for his self-centered past. That includes welcoming the teenage boy he didn’t know he fathered. When the boy’s mother walks into Jesse’s office, their son has run away from home and is on a dangerous road, travelling with a friend who isn’t a friend at all.

Maeryn Scott once loved Jesse Donovan, only to be abandoned without even a goodbye. Her love for him died suddenly—or so she thought. Now, with her son in danger and determined to confront his father, Maeryn must face the conflicting needs of her son and her own heart. Who is Jesse now? Can she trust him? Falling in love again is the last thing Maeryn wants to do—especially with a man who will turn her world upside down.

My Rating: 4 Stars!
“Jesse Donovan has messed up plenty of times. But now one mess up has come back big time. Maeryn Scott was there during that mistake and her son now wants to meet his dad–the one who doesn’t know he exists.
Victoria Bylin has crafted a wonderful story of how these people handle extremely difficult situations that crop up in their lives. There is a lot of emotion in this book and she handles it all very well. We don’t just see one character’s pain, but she fleshes out all of them with their hurts and anxieties and how they deal with these life-altering situations. Very moving and difficult to put down, this one is a must read. P.S. You’ll love the basement!
