Here's the back cover and picture of Sandi Rog's latest release, Yahshua's Bridge. It was released on November 1, 2011. If you remember, Sandi's first book was also released on November 1, 2010, and that was the day she found out she had T-Cell Lymphoma. She has struggled this past year with chemo, radiation, and stem cell transplant. The cancer is sneaky, and it returned in the early fall. She has had radiation and tried an alternate treatment. The treatment seems to be helping her. I talked to her recently and she sounded so strong, much better than before.
With Yahshua's Bridge released, she has much to look forward to. DeWard Publishing is continue to put $1.00 of each sale of the book into a fund to help Sandi and her family. If you order from them during November, you will receive free shipping. That's a good deal with Christmas on it's way. I've already ordered mine, and I'm looking forward to reading the book. Continue to remember Sandi in your prayers. She's a wonderful, strong Christian. Her family is one in a million. They are behind her all the way. Read about her journey at sandirog.blogspot.com.

Here are a few endorsements for YAHSHUA’S BRIDGE:
Sandi Rog has done it again. With Yahshua’s Bridge, the sequel to the enjoyable and award-winning The Master’s Wall, Rog proves that her first effort was no fluke: This lady knows how to spin a page-turning adventure that is at once heartwrenching and uplifting. Yahshua’s Bridge has that rare and immensely satisfying quality of being a wonderful story, brilliantly told. ~Robert Liparulo, author of The 13th Tribe, Comes a Horseman and The Dreamhouse Kings
Sandi Rog's novels are sneaky good. She has an excellent understanding of the first century and is able to convey the details of New Testament culture without making it feel like a history lesson. Like her debut novel, Yahshua's Bridge is complex without being confusing and teaches truth without being preachy. With a story that hooks you and encourages you in your own life, Yahshua's Bridge is a fast but engaging read that is sure to please any lover of historical or Biblical fiction. -Alison Strobel, author of Composing Ameliaand many others
In Yahshua’s Bridge I found an amazing novel full of romance and intrigue just as I’ve come to expect from Sandi Rog. Beyond that, I found an epic struggle of good versus evil played out against a backdrop of martyrs, coliseums, and gladiators. This book illustrated to me more than any other novel the fact that life is but a pale illusion and the glorious reality awaiting us in eternity far supersedes any temporary pain or struggles we might face on this earth. ~ Dina Sleiman, author of Dance of the Dandelion
Yahshua's Bridge is a powerful story about forgiveness and loyalty to the Christian faith. I loved the theme that God loves us enough to allow whatever is necessary to bring about our spiritual good and to produce healing in our lives. Sometimes what He allows makes no sense to us at the time.
Yahshua's Bridge reminded me of Francine Rivers's Mark of the Lion trilogy in that it was also set during the first century when Christianity was still growing, and when gladiators fought to the death for mere entertainment of Roman citizens. Sandi Rog draws you into the story so deeply that you feel each character's pain and you hurt along with them. Well-written and fast paced, Yahshua's Bridge has the potential to heal hearts and touch many lives because it doesn't soft-step or minimize human suffering. The greater the darkness was, the more the light of Christ shone in this book. I loved it! ~Michelle Sutton, author of over a dozen inspirational novels.
