Really enjoyed the book. It was an unique look at the struggles of a family at the end of WWII. The characters are very relatable and human. No spoilers, but the author definitely keeps the twists coming. Seems comparable to some Ken Follett novels. Excited to see how the rest of the series unfolds. 5/5 stars -Amazon Review
The Bridge family is about to face their toughest test in generations. One they may not all survive.
Albert Bridge’s love story with Gloria begins on a high note, but fate has different plans when duty calls him away from his bride. As he finds himself thrust into the chaos of the Pacific theater during WWII, their enduring bond is put to the test.
“Blue Hills” follows the Bridges through the war-torn days to the vibrant era of the 1950s. While love may face its share of trials, and the shadows of a criminal underworld loom, the heart of this family beats strong. With laughter as their armor and unity as their shield, they demonstrate that no matter how daunting the odds, family bonds can conquer all.
“Blue Hills” is a reminder that even the faintest glimmer of humor and the warmth of togetherness can pierce through, the bleakest of times. Join the Bridges on a journey that promises to touch your heart and leave you with a renewed appreciation for the resilience of the human spirit.
