The Bridge

The Bridge

$19.99

Paperback
Now a Hallmark Channel movie event, The Bridge, along with prequel The Beginning, is a heartwarming story of two couples who find love in a bookstore and experience the sort of miracle that can only happen at Christmastime.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury has written a modern-day classic with this unforgettable love story set against the struggle of the American bookstore. Molly Allen lives alone in Portland, but she left her heart back in Tennessee when she walked away from Ryan 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. Sometimes when he's lonely, he visits The Bridge-the oldest bookstore in historic downtown Franklin-and remembers the hours he and Molly once spent there.

For over four decades, Charlie and Donna Barton have run The Bridge, providing customers with coffee, conversation, and shelves of classics-even through dismal sales and the rise of digital books. Then the hundred-year flood sweeps through Franklin and destroys everything. The bank is about to pull the store's lease when tragedy strikes. Can two generations of readers rally together to save The Bridge? And is it possible that an unforgettable love might lead to the miracle of a second chance?

So Good
5 stars By Margot, Feb 24 2017
It doesn't get better than this - heartwarming characters I felt like I knew; an inspirational story full of life lessons about trusting God, forgiveness and second chances; a community drawn together by love, respect, memories and books; and, to top it off, a Christmas miracle. Then, of course, there is Karen Kingsbury's readable style, which made me feel like I was there, part of the tragedy, experiencing the triumph, sharing all the highs and lows of emotion in between. I recommend you read it, but read it on a day when you can just sit and read all day, and finish it tomorrow - I didn't want to put it down.
