The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer is an amazing story about love, family, the horrors of war, hope, life and death. You will cry more than you will laugh, but you will be captivated by the story and its characters. She writes beautifully and realistically; her descriptions are so vivid you will feel as if you were there, and at times you will forget it is a novel.
This is Julie Orringer's first novel; I am anxiously awaiting her next. She is an incredible and talented writer. I have ordered her collection of short stories, How to Breathe Underwater. Can't wait to read it!
