New York Times best-selling author Francine Rivers talks about her upcoming novel "Bridge to Haven."
The novel tells the story of fictional 1950s Hollywood starlet Lena Scott. Lena is the hottest rising star to hit the silver screen since Marilyn Monroe. Few know her real name is Abra. Even fewer know the price she's paid to finally feel like she's somebody.
The circumstances surrounding her birth has etched scars deep in Abra's heart, scars that leave her vulnerable to a fast-talking bad boy who proclaims his love and lures her to Tinseltown. Hollywood feels like a million miles from Haven, and naive Abra quickly learns what's expected of an ambitious girl with stars in her eyes. But fame comes at an awful price. She has burned every bridge to get exactly what she thought she wanted. Now, all she wants is a way back home.
This riveting novel is a tale of temptation, grace, and unconditional love.
