ABOUT THE BOOK
As a storm rages in the night, unwary drivers venture onto Tampa Bay’s most renowned bridge. No one sees the danger ahead. No one notices the jagged gap hidden by the darkness and rain. Yet when the bridge collapses vehicles careen into the churning waters of the bay below.
In that one catastrophic moment, three powerful stories converge: a family ravaged by their child’s heartbreaking news, a marriage threatened by its own facade, and a college student burdened by self doubt. As each story unfolds, the characters move steadily closer to that fateful moment on the bridge. And while each character searches for grace, the storms in their lives loom as large as the storm that awaits them above the bay.
Then these characters intersect in Carolyn Williford’s gripping and moving volume of three novellas, they also collide with the transforming truth of Christ: Deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow me.

WOW....this book has character. Each of the stories are very real and touching, painful even...then there's the tragedy. It reminded me of our tragedy here in MN when the 35W bridge collapsed. I thought each story was riveting in itself, but when you continue to read and see how they all come together, not only is this book eerie, but it is quite compelling as well. I was hooked after the first couple of pages! A summer read must!
