Audiobook Review of Ruth Logan Herne's Welcome to Wishing Bridge


Audiobook Review

5 Stars *****

Welcome to Wishing Bridge (Brilliance Audio)
Ruth Logan Herne

I'm glad I "won" a Goodreads giveaway of this novel -- even though I never did get notified nor did I get a copy! Because what I did instead was snagged a cheap audiobook version of this absolutely lovely Christmas novel, the first in a new series by Ruth Logan Herne. Ruth was an Overcoming With God blog Angel Award Recipient last year! She has a big heart and an even bigger talent. She's a dedicated professional author, working diligently. She's up early in the morning (Ruthy logs into the 1k1Hr group on Facebook around 5ish most mornings -- when the rest of us are usually sleeping!). But back to this story.

If you're looking for a feel-good story with great narration, lovable characters, and some interesting plot twists and mystery, this is the audiobook for you! Its such a great listen that I plowed through it in about two days! That's unusual for me.

Kelsey is an almost-30 teacher with a master's degree but unable to find permanent work and has set off on a heartbreaking journey at Christmastime. Having lived for two years in Western New York, not far from fictional Wishing Bridge, I have also been caught in a Lake Erie white out. So Ruth's descriptions of driving conditions totally brought back memories! I'm afraid to say much else about this story for fear of spoilers! There's a blurb online you can read but I'd just suggest -- go BUY this story and listen!

Welcome to Wishing Bridge is available in multiple formats.
