Bridge of Gold (Doors to the Past) by Kimberley Woodhouse

Bridge of Gold (Doors to the Past)ABOUT THE BOOK

Repairs on the Golden Gate Bridge Uncover a Century-Old Murder
Walk through Doors to the Past via a new series of historical stories of romance and adventure.
Underwater archaeologist Kayla Richardson is called to the Golden Gate Bridge where repairs to one of the towers uncovers two human remains from the late 1800s and the 1930s. The head of the bridge restoration is Steven Michaels, who dives with Kayla, and a friendship develops between them. But as the investigation heats up and gold is found that dates back to the gold rush, more complications come into play that threaten them both. Could clues leading to a Gold Rush era mystery that was first discovered during the building of the bridge still ignite an obsession worth killing for?


It isn't often that a bridge is a main character in a book, but the famous Golden Gate Bridge is the focus of this dual-time story that is set in both 1933 and present day. Bridge of Gold provides a fascinating look at the bridge as it was being built in 1933, and then, in 2020, as it is undergoing repairs. Both tales include danger, fear, and the search for sunken treasure that is believed to be in the waters beneath the bridge. Greed is a common denominator, and jeopardy is a recurrent theme, but belief in God and the power of prayer are also very prevalent in the stories!

Bridge of Gold offers history, mystery, and two sweet romances. I found myself searching for more information about San Francisco, the California Gold rush of 1849, and the building of the Golden Gate Bridge. I was quickly caught up in trying to discover who was willing to kill for gold, and I loved seeing the love between Margo and Luke, in 1933, along with the contemporary relationship between Kayla and Steven. Both couples face immense obstacles, and it's uncertain if they will overcome them, but hope and faith are ever-present as they deal with these hurdles.

This book shows another dimension of Woodhouse's writing talent and I thoroughly enjoyed her efforts. Bridge of Gold is a stunning addition to the Doors to the Past series from Barbour Publishing, and I recommend it to all who appreciate Christian romantic fiction.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
