Announcing My Upcoming Novel--Bridges of the Heart

Bridges of the Heart is about the power of love and forgiveness, and the eternal natures of families, and will debut this spring in LDS bookstores!  
Rachel's life falls apart when her mother becomes ill and passes away. To add to her confusion, Maxson proposes marriage on the evening of the funeral. Rachel escapes to Utah to think and take time off from the relationship. She tells Maxson by phone to date while she is away, and that she is not ready for an engagement. After returning to Arizona, Rachel finds Maxson in a relationship with Paige—Rachel’s rival throughout high school. 
With time, she convinces herself she is over Maxson, but a strange Southern visitor named Jonathan tells her that in the eternal scheme, she was meant to marry Maxson. He insists it is her responsibility to apologize to Maxson and set things straight, since she broke up the relationship. But she refuses. 
Because of Rachel’s stubbornness, she is whirled back in time to 1820 to learn that families are eternal—not only through time forward, but also the past. 
Latter-day Saint women of all ages will enjoy Bridges of the Heart. Through this unique perspective of early 19th century American South, this heartwarming tale will remind readers that family bonds reach through all time.
