A touching love story, The Bridge reveals how a family tragedy—kept hidden for fifteen years—ends up wreaking havoc when it is finally revealed.
An automobile accident at the Langston Bridge foreshadows events to come when high school sophomore Kirby Smith sets off on an intoxicating summer vacation at her grandparents’ home in gorgeous Emerald Isle, North Carolina.
A budding track star and honor student, Kirby is looking forward to practicing for her driver’s license exam on the barrier island. But even more exciting than that is the boy she noticed at the end of last summer…a boy she’s been dreaming about all year.
Sparks fly when the two young people get together. But when Kirby innocently stumbles on a shocking secret, readers are taken back to another time, revealing heartrending events that have been concealed for years.
A poignant tale of love, loss, and forgiveness, The Bridge speaks to the sacrifices that our military families make in service to the country.
Emerald Isle, North Carolina, holds a special place in Kirby’s heart. It was here, on this charming island, that Kirby first met the love of her life, Sam Fontaine. When Kirby thinks of the island, she thinks of first love, friendship, and family.
In this sequel to Thomas P. Gill’s The Bridge, Emerald Isle welcomes Kirby back after a devastating tragedy. Sam, now a Marine pilot, is killed in a test flight gone horribly wrong.
Kirby always thought of herself as Sam’s “wingman,” but now she’ll have to soar on her own. She has a teenage son to support, and life can’t stop for her grief.
Back on the island, Kirby meets two new men who work on breaking her out of her depression. ABS is a young handyman with an irresistible southern drawl. Crutch is a handsome pilot who used to fly with Sam as a marine. Each man offers Kirby something different, and she isn’t sure what she wants.
At the same time, Kirby’s son, Journey, volunteers to monitor turtle nests. His new hobby, however, could lead to unexpected danger. Kirby will have to stand strong during a major catastrophe that could tear her family apart once again.
