Number one New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury delivers an instant classic with this heartwarming Christmas story about a hundred-year flood, lost love, and the beauty of enduring friendships.

Molly Allen lives alone in Portland, but she left her heart back in Tennessee with a man she walked away from five years ago. They had a rare sort of love she hasn’t found since.

Ryan Kelly lives in Nashville after a broken engagement and several years on the road touring with a country music duo. He can still hear Molly’s voice encouraging him to follow his dreams; Molly, whose memory stays with him. At least he can visit The Bridge—the oldest bookstore in historic downtown Franklin—and remember the hours he and Molly once spent there.

For thirty years, Charlie and Donna Barton have run The Bridge, providing the people of middle Tennessee with coffee, conversation, and shelves of good books—even through dismal book sales and the rise of digital books. Then in May, the hundred-year flood swept through Franklin and destroyed nearly every book in the store.

Now the bank is pulling the lease on The Bridge. Despondent and without answers, Charlie considers the unthinkable. Then tragedy strikes, and suddenly, everything changes. In the face of desperate brokenness and lost opportunities, could the miracle of a second chance actually unfold?

The Bridge is a love story set against the struggle of the American bookstore, a love story you will never forget.

My Thoughts:

Another touching and heartwarming story by #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Karen Kingsbury.

The story in The Bridge is the story of two young people, Molly and Ryan, and how they fell in love at a bookstore called The Bridge.

Molly, a rich business man’s daughter, met Ryan at college. He was only a country mans’ son, but she didn’t care. When they start using the bookstore as a study place, they find themselves falling in love with each other.

But before anything can happen, someone reports to Molly’s father of the couple. He will go to the extreme to keep them apart. After he manages to break them apart, Molly and Ryan both go their separate ways.

This book shows that nothing can keep true love apart. I really enjoyed this book. Although it is based around the holidays, it can be read at any time throughout the year. I encourage you to go get your own copy today.
