Veitch, 28, a home builder, was constructing eight new homes and found that he was losing thousands of dollars to copper theft on a regular basis. Upon the advice of a police deputy, Jason stood guard one night at a home under construction. When encountering and subduing three intruders, his shotgun accidently fired hitting one of the men who later died. The local prosecutor then charged Veitch with felony murder.

After her son’s arrest Carpenter busied herself researching everything. “I became an attorney, a police officer, a judge, a juror, a forensic expert,” says Carpenter. “Then two weeks before trial, I realized that everything I researched was to no avail. There was nothing else that I could do to help Jason. So I turned Jason over to God and a miracle happened.” A native of Georgia, Jackie Carpenter says she knows God inspired her to write The Bridge and followed His leading throughout the writing process. “I am God’s Secretary. He dictated and I typed.”
