To Get to You by Joanne Bischof

To Get to YouSynopsis:~

To get to the girl he loves, Riley Kane must head off on a road trip with the father he never knew. Then pray for a miracle.

Most teens would love to have a pro surfer for a dad. Just not Riley. Abandoned as a kid, he hates the sound of the ocean and the man who gave himself to it.

When the eighteen-year-old learns that his best friend is stranded at a New Mexico hospital as her father fights for his life, Riley hits the highway to head east. But when his Jeep breaks down before he even leaves California, he must rely on the one man he despises to get to the girl who needs him the most. And when it comes to the surfer with the Volkswagen van and dog-eared map, a thousand miles may–or may not–be enough to heal the past.

A story of new beginnings and second chances.

My take:~

There is something magical about the way Joanne Bischof weaves words, evokes emotions, and holds a reader captive from beginning to end. It’s almost indescribable.

Powerfully written, yet with a deft and tender hand, Joanne has penned a treasure trove of insight, wisdom, hope, and love for every reader, regardless of age or gender and I can’t recommend it highly enough. I loved each and every character; Riley with his wild past, Becca, rich in love, family, and faith, Jake struggling with fatherly regret, and Saul, just for being Saul! To Get to You packs a spiritual and emotional punch that will leave you reeling from its beauty, intensity, and sheer fabulousness! I can assure you, once you pick yourself up off the floor, you will want to experience it all over again! More please, Joanne!

  1. Rel, SO blessed by your review of To Get to You and really, just by you in general. You’ve been such an encouragement to me these last few years. I’m honored that you read this one and to read such sweet, heartfelt words just about does me in. :) Thank you for EVERYTHING!

  2. I do so depend on you, Rel and your reviews for what’s up next on my TBR pile. It was through your review that I read “This Quiet Sky” – – and was blown away by Joanne Bischof’s writing style. That book still holds a special place on my “heart shelf”. My library is lined with lots of “favorites” – but my heart shelf is a small space reserved for those books and authors that God used to whisper to me – where I heard His still, small voice. It is a treasured, peaceful place. So next up will be “To Get To You” – – I’m ready for some quiet time. Thanks Rel and Joanne – you’re both a gift from God!

    • Oh, Pam – your words honour me! Delighted you loved This Quiet Sky and I have no doubt you will love this contemporary story just as much. Hugs xo

    • Pam – It’s such a joy to read this! How wonderful that you discovered This Quiet Sky through Rel’s post. I am so glad! Not only because it landed one of my books on your “heart shelf” (I just love that!!) but because I’m so thankful that you discovered it through Rel who is just a gem through and through. I really hope you enjoy To Get to You and that it might bring you some hours of happy reading during your quiet time!

  3. Fabulous, fabulous book! One of my top three of the year! Can’t wait for the next one, Joanne!

  4. YES x 100! Everyone read this one. It’s beautiful as is your amazing review, Rel. :)
