    Molly Allen lives alone in Portland, but her heart is back in Franklin, Tennessee, where five years ago she walked away from a man she cannot forget, a rare sort of love she hasn’t found since. Ryan Kelly lives in Franklin and spends plenty of time at The Bridge - the oldest bookstore in historic downtown Franklin - remembering the long hours he and Kelly once spent there. Now, Ryan and Molly’s favorite bookstore is in trouble....

    What did you love best about The Bridge?

    This book was a pleasant surprise. I have "read" most of Karen Kingsbury's books and this is one of my favorites. The characters are well developed and I could relate to each one is some way. The book quickly draws you in and keeps you involved in these peoples lives. I am waiting for the next one in this series. I hope Karen writes it soon. Can't wait.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Maybe Charlie. I love how generous he is and how he focuses on people not money. His business way successful inspite of this focus.


    Any additional comments?

    The prequel is worth the listen, either before of after this book.

    Thousands of years, way before Christopher Columbus set sail, wandering tribes of hunters made their way from Asia across the Bering land bridge to North America. They didn't know it, but they had discovered a New World. The First Americans is a fascinating re-creation of pre-Columbian Native American life, and it's an adventure of a lifetime!
