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 hasnt 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 hes lonely, he visits The Bridgethe oldest bookstore in historic downtown Franklinand 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 classicseven 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 stores 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?

Last weekend I met the couple that inspired the bookstore owner couple in this book. I met them with Litsy friends in the bookstore that was also the inspiration for this book. The story is a sweet, feel good story that is a very quick read. Two couples, one couple opening the bookstore and the other falling in love in the store. A little predictable, but a good break from other books

Visiting Landmark Bookstore in downtown Franklin for our Nashville area Litsy Meet Up. The tagged book was based on this lovely old book store. The owners were awesome and gave us a personal history lesson. Learned so much about the incredible southern writers from here in Tennessee. Now we‘re off to lunch! Love all my fellow readers!

I loved this short novel of hope & redemption! A bookstore named the Bridge (or rather the owners) changed people. As he faces life or death & his bookstore appears to be without hope, hope arrives. @TiaQueso @FeatherV

“He called it The Bridge because that was how he felt about books. They connected the past and the present, the present and the future. Books brought people together and gave them a path to worlds they would not otherwise experience.”
