Abra, the little girl, felt like she is being abandoned once again, and starts to rebel. She became so close to her brothers, especially with Joshua, that she couldn’t stand the fact to be away from him. Eventually, Abra grows into a beautiful young woman who runs away with a boy she barely knows, and turns her back on everything she was taught. However, her life does not go the way she expects. The fast-talking boy she run away with starts abusing her, and she stops feeling any love she she used to have for him.

Bridge To Haven is all about temptation, grace and unconditional love. According to Francine, people are born to do and learn from their mistakes. All we are left to do is repent and hope for the best, just like Abra. Even though she fulfills her dreams and becomes famous, all her heart wants is to go back to Haven.
