Browsing for a good novel, I was fortunate to locate this
treasure, Magic Bridge. The pitch for
the book described the setting in Arizona, and having lived in Phoenix, I was
excited to take the trip. It was nostalgic visiting Phoenix and other memorable
places in the great state of Arizona.
There’s more to the story than beautiful landscape, however.
We share the lives of Bridgette and Matt, who meet in Crown King, Arizona. Not
only do they fall in love and marry, but they travel the world, and as lucky
readers, we get to hike right alongside the couple.
As with any relationship, there are ups and downs, and
Bridgette and Matt live through adversities most relationships hope to escape. Promises
are made and Bridgette is put to the test in keeping her word.
What balances the heartbreak of the story is being able to travel
the world with two characters that relish life, and are intelligent,
interesting, and very real. The true meaning of friendship is a major theme in Magic Bridge, and Bridgette and Matt’s
friends are the cream of the crop.
Booklovers, who appreciate history, and stories about
genuine relationships, will be captivated taking a trip around the world with
Bridgette and Matt.
