Bridge to Haven by Francine Rivers is based on the story of the prodigal son.
'Bridge to Haven', from bestselling Christian author Francine Rivers, is the thrilling story of an ambitious young woman fighting a moral battle in the treacherous world of 1950's Hollywood.
Lena Scott is the up-and-coming movie star about to snatch Marilyn Monroe's prestigious Hollywood crown. But she had to pay the price for her fame, becoming a distant shadow of the girl called Abra who grew up in the loving adopted home of Pastor Ezekiel Freeman.
The emotional scars of being abandoned at birth never disappear. Abra was fortunate to have been found by Zeke, and to have grown up with his son, Joshua, her best friend. But the temptation of Hollywood and the promises from a handsome bad-boy lured Abra away from the innocent outskirts of Haven towards the silver screen of Hollywood. She quickly discovers how to survive in this world but in the process burns all the bridges of her past.
Can Abra make her way back home to Haven or will she remain Lena Scott forever?
Francine Rivers is known for her mouth-watering romantic fiction that often spans over 500 pages. 'Bridge to Haven' is yet another example of her grasp for the human condition, her ability to effortlessly weave faith into her enthralling novels, and her masterful grip for emotive storytelling.

To Pastor Ezekiel Freeman, Abra will always be the little girl who stole his heart the night he found her, a wailing newborn abandoned under a bridge on the outskirts of Haven. Zeke and his son, Joshua - Abra's closest friend- watch her grow into an exotic beauty. But Zeke knows the circumstances surrounding her birth etched scars deep in her 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.
In this riveting and highly anticipated tale of temptation, grace, and unconditional love, New York Times best-selling author Francine Rivers delivers big-canvas storytelling at its very best.
"Bridge to Haven is out now from Tyndale House Publishers. If you've never read any of Francine Rivers' books then go and discover them for yourself--you are in for a real treat." - Christian Today.
"Rivers (Redeeming Love) returns with a page-turning recasting of the story of the prodigal son, here a prodigal daughter. In 1936, Abra Matthews is found as a newborn under a bridge in the small California town of Haven by Pastor Ezekiel Freeman. She's taken in, but never feels as if she quite belongs, so she is susceptible to a beguiling young man who years later lures 17-year-old Abra to Hollywood. There, she becomes starlet Lena Scott, made over by a Pygmalion-like agent who wants everything from her, even while Abra/Lena comes to understand the cost of what she thought she wanted. Rivers nicely evokes 1950s Hollywood, with its gossip columnists, high-wattage movie stars, and ladder-climbing aspirants; Elvis Presley and Lana Turner put in cameos. This story arc will be particularly resonant for Christian readers, but Rivers has the writing ability to reel in others who enjoy a well-told tale of redemption." - Publishers Weekly.
"In Rivers' exquisite style, she takes the Biblical story of Ezekiel 16 and translates it into a character-driven tale set in the '30s through the '60s. Relating the experiences of the characters to the reader's relationship with God takes the story to the next level. Richly detailed, at times disturbing, but completely real and dynamic, this is a book to savour". - Romantic Times.
