Publisher's Summary

Two strangers, opposite coasts, and abridge that silently beckons.

Katie Connelly has lived in San Francisco all her life. Her late father made his career as an ironworker on the Golden Gate Bridge, and the many stories of him trying to save jumpers still haunt her. When she's asked to write a history about the bridge, her research uncovers a secret journal hidden in her father's desk, pages of familiar advice penned by the hand of a stranger. The scribbled words tell of a promise ring and a distant love, clues that Katie hopes may answer her own unresolved sorrow.

Across the country, Dave Riley, a marketing executive in New York, encounters sorrows of his own. As he grasps at straws after tragedy strikes his family, a once whimsical daydream quickly turns into an obsession: he must ride his motorcycle across the Golden Gate Bridge on the Fourth of July.

Does the bridge hold answers for both Katie and Dave? Or will it only add to their heartache? The puzzling words left behind in a long-forgotten journal hold the key to the truth that they will discover on The Other Side of the Bridge.

Lessons from the bridge

I really enjoyed this story. It was an emotional journey but I was in the mood. The history of the bridge was interesting. I wish I had understood it from this perspective when we lived in San Francisco, many years ago.

A great book.

My husband and I listened to this book together. It was a delight. Cameron Wright has a real gift of capturing personalities and describing them so that the reader can identify with the story. We continue to read more of his books.

Pales in comparison to The Rent Collector

I selected this book due to the author's incredible writing in The Rent Collector
This didn't read like it was from the same author. Writing and storyline seemed sophomoric compared to the richness of the characters and storyline of The Rent Collector.

The woman's wedding time made it so hard to enjoy<br />

A good inspirational story, if a little predictable. The biggest issue was the woman's voice, between the voice and the character it felt like talking to a manic depressive. It was super hard to listen with the family, my kids literally groaned everytime the woman's voice came on.
