The Bridge by Jackie Carpenter

After her son, Richard Jason Veitch, was falsely accused of felony murder, Xulon Press author Jackie Carpenter found the odds seemingly stacked against her: there was no hope, money was of no value, and she was rendered helpless before a jury of 12. But by simply waiting on a miracle from God, she was able to experience deliverance from her troubles—all in His perfect timing. In The Bridge: Between Cell Block A and a Miracle Is: Psalm 91, the author’s new release, Carpenter details the actual events that took place before, during, and after the high-profile murder trial, giving readers a glimpse into the legal process, the utter helplessness endured by the family, and the strong faith that ultimately brought them to a place of victory.

MY REVIEW

The Bridge is a heart-wrenching account, from a mother's point of view, of a son who was falsely accused of murder. This quick to read book is filled with the anguish of a mother with a broken heart, as she strives to remain strong for her family. She discovers a little book based on the 91st Psalm, and she claimed these promises for herself and the entire family as they go through the trial.

Jackie Carpenter might not be the most polished author, yet she writes with such honesty and transparency, that you can't help but relate to the story with compassion. Her testimony is one of strength and endurance, and her account is an awesome witness to the miracle of God's love.
