Mesmerizing, Moving Book

I have just finished reading Yahshua’s Bridge, award-winning author Sandi Rog’s second book in the Iron and the Stone series. I have just returned to present day after spending days in Rome, AD 88. I witnessed unspeakable cruelty in the midst of beauty, hate eventually overcome by love and bitterness defeated by forgiveness. With brilliant descriptions of scenery and dialogue appropriate to the period, readers of Yahshua’s Bridge will have no problem becoming involved in the lives of David and Alethea, their daughter, Elianna and the hero of the story, Alexander.
   
From the back cover:

     “An amethyst stone draws him to his past. An elusive maiden draws him to his future. Alexander is born into slavery under an abusive master: a master of his own flesh and blood. . . a man he will never call father. Determined to break away from his master’s hold, Alexander devises a plan to purchase his freedom. But what’s he to do when he finds himself shipped off in shackles to Egypt, disappearing from the lives of everyone he knows and loves?”

Full of Biblical truths, this book centers around the message of forgiveness and salvation. I believe readers will be motivated, as I was, to examine their life for areas for which they need forgiveness. Equally as important, readers will be challenged to forgive people who they need to forgive.

Written during a time of extreme challenges, in my humble opinion, Ms. Rog has written one of the foremost historical Biblical fictions of our time. This is a book you will want to read, and read again.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book for purposes of this review. I am not being compensated for this review.
