GOOD NEWS FROM CATHERINE WEST ~

Cathy, glad to have you here this week. I understand  there's something more than your featured story - BRIDGE OF FAITH  you want to share with my followers?

Yes, Joy.
As you may have seen, I was able to announce my news this week, that I have signed a contract with Harper Collins Christian/Thomas Nelson Publishers, for 2 books. I'm super excited!!

Wonderful news! I am excited for you too ~ especially coming on the heels of this successful release of BRIDGE OF FAITH Good for you!

Joy's thoughts on 
                         BRIDGE OF FAITH

 Bridge of Faith is a compelling work of fiction. A strong and emotional moving story where both heroine and hero have much to overcome before they can be there for each other. I THOROUGHLY enjoyed the writing, the characters, the depth of human growth. Catherine West is an author I'll be following as her next books come out.

Two lives taken down different roads - one enduring love - one shot at starting over.

If only they believed in second chances.


Julia Connelly is finally free from twelve long years in an abusive relationship. Now able to live the life she’s longed for, Julia takes her two children back home to Vermont, hoping for peace and healing. The last person she expects to see is the man she eloped with at eighteen—who then abandoned her two months into their marriage, with little explanation.

            When an assignment in the Middle East ends in tragedy, popular news correspondent, Reid Wallace, returns to his hometown seeking answers and peace of mind.

Confronting his past was not in the plan.

Now he’s asking different questions. Like why the only woman he’s ever really loved still mesmerizes him. Why the haunted expression she wears reaches right into his soul.

And why her twelve year-old son looks just like him.

They say you can’t go home again. 
Sometimes you don’t have a choice. 

Stop by tomorrow - WEDNESDAY for another post by Catherine West !

Catherine, your plot draws me in. And I discovered you live in Bermuda and grow orchids. I'd love to see a pic of one/some of them!

Congrats on your contract, and thanks for sharing the encouragement of your story.
